A little bit of news

Good morning one and all.
Apologies for the lack of posts and creations. I have been busy behind the scenes with a couple of things which I will be able to show in a couple of weeks. I do have one card to share however and it's using Jayne's lovely new stamps.

The fans are from the Assessories stamp set and the sentiment from the Oriental Lady set.

Now for the news. Jayne will be anouncing something on her blog tomorrow (Friday) and I believe there is a lovely prize involved so please do check it out tomorrow by visiting Jayne's blog via her website or you can visit her on Facebook, Time for Tea with Jayne Nestorenko.

Thank you for visiting me

Flowers to cheer us up!

Yes I am still here, just had a busy week with one thing and another. Anyway I did manage to have a fabulous day out at Wimbledon on Sunday and despite the fact that Andy Murray didn't win we still had a brilliant time. I am paying the price now though and could do with an afternoon nap but I will soldier on.

Thought I would share a card I made using the wonderful Grande Journey stamps.

The flowers are from the assessories stamp plate and the greeting and corners are from the Indian Princess plate.  I created the paper by putting distress ink onto centura pearl card then spritzed and dabbed to get the mottled effect. I then stamped on the flowers and gave it a spritz with gold Spray and Sparkle. I stamped the large flowers onto another piece of the card and layered them up.

I'll try and get back here and also do a bit of visiting before too long but for now I'll have to say goodbye and thank you for visiting.

Look what we did!

Good afternoon.
I had a lovely day yesterday at Jayne's workshop. We did some great projects, tried out some new techniques and had loads of fun into the bargain, not to mention all the chat and scoffing!
So without further ado here are the cards we made.

The first card is one that is a featured project on Jayne's new website and as you can see we used one of the Keepsake boards for this.  Jayne did several  samples of this card in various colours  so we were able to choose our favourite colourway.  Very predictably I went with purple, well a sort of aubergine colour actually.  I coloured the images with copics and am very pleased with the result. Hope you like it. 

This next one is the Rialto Bridge, again coloured with copics. The paper behind the tags we created with Distress inks on centura snow white pearl card sprayed with water and dabbed with paper towel to achieve an effect we liked.

Jayne's lovely and very talented friend Helene showed us a lovely technique using distress inks and I'm sure Helene wont mind if I show you one of her beautiful creations.

Lovely isn't it?

Well that's it from me for now, I'm off to watch a bit more tennis.
Thank you for visiting
