Best Wishes

Hi everyone, thanks for popping in. 
A big thank you to Sylvia for emailing me some photos , 
Fabulous cards , I am so proud of you,,,,hugs xx

I have just walked to the Post Office to deliver the Tuesday cake treat for the lovely staff. 
I also posted some samples off to HOCHANDA. 
My lovely boss man Abs asked us on Saturday if we could make samples and get them to the tv for shows tomorrow and 
Good job as DT members that we can work under pressure.
Mind you I was on Grandma duties on Friday and Saturday .

So today I thought I would share one of my samples with you. 
The ODS features stamps by lovely Tracy Evans. 

I have gone for a fresh, theme with this one. 
Lots of detail and layers, but still keeping white space and giving the eye somewhere to rest.

I started off by masking off the border, and then adding some yellow oxide ink. 

Next , I added some stencilling, 
Keeping it all quite light though, 
Remember this is just part of the background. 

Next , I introduced some orange ink. 
I do love creating pieces like this. 

Now for the main image 

Just a few finishing off tricks, and then I decoupaged the petals.

A lovely design to send to a friend. 

I had to just add the pen, and some glossy accents...
We all have our tell tale signs in crafting don’t we !!!!

It is a very grey day here today, quite miserable really. 
A day for hot soup  , 
Yes, hot soup for lunch today .

Thanks for popping in all 
Take care 

Love and hugs
