Just Add Ink Challenge

Had a quiet afternoon at home today and had no urgent cards to make, so I decided to check out some challenge sites for inspiration. I had just missed the deadline on a couple, but found this one at Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge 187

On first glance it looked quite simple, but sometimes simple is actually quite difficult and I spent a bit of time just looking at a blank page. I finally remembered a technique I wanted to try using one of the stamps from the Mosaic Madness set. I also used two of my favourite In Colours - Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana. Here is my card:

I hope you like my card

More Birthdays

We seem to celebrate birthdays every other week in our family, so I am constantly making cards to give to family and friends. . . . luckily I enjoy card making!!
The first card is one I made for my gorgeous niece Jasmine May's 1st Birthday - I wanted to have a go at stitching on a card - it was a bit tricky to keep the card straight, but I am happy with the effect. I then used water colour pencils and an aqua painter to colour the image in. . . .  I hope she likes her card.

The second card was for my darling Mum's Birthday (I won't say which one - birthday, not Mum - I only have one of those!!) featuring the Shop Around Wheel and the gorgeous Ruffle Stretch Trim which I love using. Mum always keeps her cards on display for ages and then has her favourites on a board in her study, so I like to make something special so I can be on the board.
