This card took a lot of thought as it was for my nieces wedding...i thought about what i wanted to do then i adapted files that i had to make the 'lace' for the dress. Firstly i cut out a long dress shape on my silhouette and a bodice seperately..then i used a cupcake wrapper for the lace and just made it larger and smaller...to fit the 'dress' i used some organza ribbon as the underskirt and hey presto!!

I had such fun making these cards. They were  my very 1st grunge cards and i loved playing with the ink...i used a tim holtz walnut and sepia tones ...the flower was very easy it was just a strip of paper with snips in the edges and rolled up then squashed out ...The toppers were in my stash and the newspaper was a free file from silhouette ...

This is the first scrapbook page i did..It is my daughter nicky and was done in craft artist...i thought the original photo was lovely and deserved to be glamoured up.i hope she thinks i did it justice...i loved the feathers and the fact that you could put a shadow on the page to make it look 3d. i am biased because i think she is beautiful xx

please be patient

Please be patient with me as i am still learning how to blog and so this blog isnt so good at the moment but the thing with craft ers is that we like to learn new things /techniques and ideas its all a learning curve...so this is my new curve for now along with my projects that are on the go...i will try to post some of my previous cards and boxes...and see how i go along...
