Well here are a few more of my latest cards - the first one is one I've done for my youngest daughter Laura who has just landed a new Supervisor's job after being made redundant last December!
This is a Bentley Bear stamp that I coloured in with felt tips and I'd put it on handmade paper card (see below). I added a paper that had a flowery border and coloured that in as well. I stamped some little birds and some leaves too. Then I used two stamps for Congratulations Laura.
Here is my version of the paper that has a bird and a cage on it which I did last Thursday! I put the paper on a green base card and left a little of it as a border showing. I used another paper from the same collection at the top and cut it on the slant. I then added a black patterned paper that was cut out with wavy scissors to create a patchwork effect and added a green shiney ribbon across the two parts.
I cut out a little circle that has the words; 'Live the life you have imagined' and added a little green bow that I made.
I then put a green and orange butterfly on the top half.
This card I made today and has a cream paper that has a decorative darker cream border and an inset square in cream. I then stamped an oval shape from one of the new Waltzingmouse stamp sets I bought, called 'Very Vintage Labels No.10 and added the little silver corner stamp in each corner, from the same set. I enhanced the silver stamp with a silver felt tip pen. Then I stamped the rose which was from a set called 'Roses in Bloom'. I then coloured it in with felt tip colours. I added a little pink butterfly motif and stamped in red 'You are a rose in life's garden' also from the same set.
I originally did this to enter the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge - but I think, being my usual 'Silly Sally' self, I've got the wrong idea about it, as I think you have to use the sketch that they have there and make something out of it!!!!
