All that Jazz

Well it's been a while but I'm back.

These two cards where made for my daughter. The first one using Visible image stamp, Crealies patchwork die No.1 and background created using shaving foam and dylusions sprays. A technique we did at Pauline Butcher's workshop in August.


 The second card I made for her Wedding Anniversary. The background was created with dylusions sprays and a variety of background stamps and also Rubberdance stamps.            

I really enjoyed making these card. The Jazz one is particularly apt as my daughter Justine in a big fan of Curtis Stigers, jazz singer and sax player.

Thanks for looking

All that shimmers!

Today I am sharing a card and small canvas that I made for a dear friend who celebrated her birthday on Friday.
As you have probably guessed by now I love using the black and gilding wax technique so I used it for both the card and canvas, well why not? It's fun!

I used the same gilding waxes on both the card and canvas. Creative Expressions Deep Red and Graceful Blue along with Viva Inka Gold.

For the card I used Cosmic Shimmer Gold Pearl Texture Paste through the Fantasy Willow Sweet Poppy stencil onto black card which I edged using a Krylon gold pen. The background was created using Sue Wilson's Pinpoint embossing folding and gilding wax.  Shame the lovely shimmer doesn't show as well on the photos as in real life.

Bye for now

Nice cuppa

We had a most enjoyable time last week.
Started on the Saturday with a brilliant workshop by Andy Coates at Sunrise Crafts. We made a fabulous teacup canvas which I love.
Then it was off to Hornchurch on Sunday for a lovely famly meal to celebrate my Sister in laws 75th birthday. We then moved on to Sudbury where we stayed for a few days with John's brother and his wife at their lovely bungalow and beautiful garden. It was very enjoyable.

Here is a card I created using the shaving foam and spray paint background and Sweet poppy Dragon stencil with and glitter paste. Using the stencil with this background gives the look of a sea horse I think.

Thanks for stopping by.
