I am now getting back to normal after having my lovely Daughter and her family here for a fortnight. It seems very quiet and a bit lonely now they have all gone back :-(
Surprisingly, I decided to work with my favourite colour today - Yellow - and so am having a bit of a sunshiny day :-D
My first one is using up my snippets of patterned vellum and daisy ribbon with a Freebie image from NEWTON's NOOK DESIGNS - who I only discovered this morning, and I have fallen in love with the Newton Stamp sets, so might just be treating myself pretty soon :-D I used the sketch given for this week's Challenge.
I printed out the image 4 times and coloured it with Spectrum Noir pens and then fussy cut the pieces to decoupage up with foamies. I added a blob of Diamond Glaze to the little Ladybird and then used a black pen to draw the flight line up to the text and past to the bug :-)
My second card features this week's Freebie from A DAY FOR DAISIES, and I have coloured this one with Promarkers.
I cut it out with my new frame die - Pierced Stacker #4 - from Cheery Lynn Designs.
This card also uses snippets of papers from the plaid collection at DOODLE PANTRY and some oddments of paper for the lacy borders.
I cut out some leaves and made some lemon blossom to add in the corner.
I followed SKETCH #249 from Sketch Saturday for this piece, but I turned it sideways..
I definitely feel a bit jollier having been working with yellow this afternoon :-)
Thank you for dropping in.
