On a totally different subject, although paper is involved, so a very tenuous link, I made another card last night. I have been pointed in the direction of a very talented designer who is generous enough to occasionally offer her designs for free, to followers of her Facebook page. Her name is Maurie J Manning, and I took advantage of this. She does have a blog, which I'm pretty sure is one that I follow, but, not sure if it shows on my blog. I need to work out how to add those button things that are at the side of most blogs. More information about Mo's designs can be found here http://digitalpenciltoo.blogspot.com/
I printed the image onto a piece of plain white card, along with the sentiment (also provided by Mo) which says "If we are ever to enjoy life now is the time, not tomorrow or next year. Today should always be our most wonderful day - Thomas Dreir" I then coloured it in with a slection of ProMarkers, used a wavy blade to cut it, and the sentiment out. I used Tim Holtz distressed inks to shade them, along with the plain white card on which they are mounted (card from QVC). I then added 2 felt flowers and a crystal. I am happy with the concept and the overall result, but the distressed ink technique need a bit of work, because it's too "dabby" despite my attemps at circular movements.
See you soon folks.....
PS - Can't remember if I said who provided the image for the Engagement card. I will check and if I omitted them, I shall provide them next time I post.
