Merci


Hi, today I have another card to show you using 'Madame Payraud's' paper collection from Do Crafts. I have cut a border in the shape of the Paris Skyline and backed it with black card to make it pop, before adding an Eiffel Tower that has been cut from one of the sheets of paper. The butterfly, crown and bird panel were also cut from the papers. The small frog is a sticker that has been in my stash for about nine years now, but I liked them almost too much to used them. The flowers were made using a Tonic punch and the leaves are dies from Cherry Lynn. The ribbon, lace, gems and the sentiment sticker are from my stash and I have finished the card with Stickles and Glossy Accents. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.

Framed Birds


Hello, today I have a picture and from to show you that I have made. The frame was origanally just a ornate white plastic frame from the pound shop, which I have covered with Alcohol Ink, Guilding wax and Embossing powder. I used Crafters Companion 'Spray and Shine' to seal all the layers, but it took about half an hour to dry and set properly. The image in the frame was made using a sheet from Kanban's 'In The Garden' paper pad. I have decoupaged the birds and added some of the swirl embellishments around the image. I have also added some Perfect Pearls to finish. The frame takes a 7 x 5 inch photo. Thought I'd try something a little different than just a card, I hope you like it and thanks for visiting.
