Pretty Peony Card

Pretty Peonies Birthday Card

I think everyone loves the sweet scent of peonies. Their delicate petals and pastel colours are one of spring’s special gifts.

These pretty peonies are by Marcella Hawley of Power Poppy. Just as a note, I’m not, in any way, affiliated with Power Poppy or Marcella Hawley, I just thought I’d include the link so you can visit her site and browse through the beautiful floral digis.

Julie, July 30, 2016.jpg--CU of cupI really enjoyed making this birthday card for my dear friend, Julie. As always, I coloured it with my Copic markers and then added shine and dimension to the cups with 3-D Crystal Lacquer. I tried to capture it on the striped mug, but I just couldn’t get the right lighting. I think you can see the shine and 3-D effect quite clearly on the polka dot tea cup. Isn’t it pretty?

Happy crafting, happy colouring, happy everything!


The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge #2–Ribbons and/or Lace

Angel Donita: Digi by Digital Delights by Louby Lou

There’s always something fun going on at The Crafter’s Cafe.

Welcome back to the Crafter’s Cafe Challenge.

This month, the theme is is to use ribbons and/or lace on your project.

I created this card in pastels, using lace, flowers and heavenly soft feathers. I coloured Angel Donita with my Copic markers, added a little dazzle to her wings and perched her sweetly on the lace border.

Holding to my crafter’s resolution for 2012, I have finished all four sides of my card. Here’s the inside…
