Hello there! I've been crafting for as long as I can remember, good old Blue Peter got me started and then I branched out into cross stitching. For the last four years my passion has been cardmaking, something I'm actively trying to improve all the time. Happy crafting all!
Well, another weekend, another sketch on CMLI. This Saturday it was Debs' turn to guest design and boy did she set us an interesting sketch! I couldn't quite fit the theme in of 'dressing up' and I was in desperate need of making my husband's Valentine's card...plus he was working all day....so....
I used the free papers from this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, very versatile for a unisex Valentine's card I think. I've photographed the card standing up so you can see the aperture in the front and chalk and stamp on the inside. The diagonal strips are red glitter on double sided-tape, the first time I've used that technique and I think it works really well.
This is the card I made for Saturday's sketch challenge over on the Craft Mad and Loving It group on craftbubble.com. The twist was 'animals' so a great chance to use my Milton and Co stamp along with my new Sahara Sand versamagic ink for a sepia look. I'm quite pleased with the results although the photo is a bit grainy.
I shall also be entering this into a few other challenges:
