WELCOME

This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Brown and Green Oriental Dragonfly



A few years ago I found out from my aunt that my grandfather was quite ill and so I wrote a Get Well card for him. But, before I could get it in the post, he passed away, and I think I've probably still got that card somewhere.

So, as a result, I detest making Get Well Soon cards.

I found out yesterday that an elderly friend of my husband's family is ill in hospital so I've decided to make a Thinking of You card for her instead.

I used a few of the stamps from the Non Sequitur Oriental Collage Elements and Dragonflies set. The dragonfly was stamped and embossed using the Heat It Up! Enchanted Gold powder, and watercoloured using the Whispers Brushstrokes markers.

The leaf branch and quote were stamped using the Whispers Caramel Delight, and a light brown colour wash was given to the rest of the panel.

I layered up a couple of Prima flowers and added a crystal gem to the centre and added to the stamped panel, then matted it on pearlescent copper paper.

The green patterned paper is from the Papermania Oriental Spice pad, also matted on pearlescent copper paper.
