Finally some cards... and a fabulous award.

Materials:
Paper and Cardstock: K+Co, PM

Embellishments: Prima flowers, woodware brads, and perfect pearls


Good Evening,
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.
I've just had a fantastic afternoon. My dad took me to a shop near Tamworth called Forever Cards and Crafts they have their own website too.
I managed to get hold of some gorgeous Prima flowers while i was there... i've looked everywhere for them, and the Glitterpot always seems to be sold out lol. I also got my hands on some perfect pearls which you can see down the side of my sentiment.
I am entering this card into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is Soft and Sweet.
This little girls is sooooooooooo sweet, and i have used very soft and subtle colour tones.
The image has been coloured with whispers, promarkers and highlighted witha white gel-pen.
I'm really proud of my colouring, i think i'm finally improving.

My next card is for Lyndseys little girl, Abbie, as some of you may know, she hasn't been feeling the best at the moment, so i sent her a card to cheer her up a bit.

Materials:
Paper and Card: PM and Dovecraft
Image: Digi Download availible from here. Coloured with watercolour paints.
Embellishments: Prima flower, Card Candys, Pin- i made myself! Brads, gems are from stash.

I thought mermaids would be sutible, and i was dying to use my Digi- Download set i won from True.
I watercoloured the background myself.

Here is a Close-Up of the glitter i added, and my handmade pin.
