Well, it's been a rough couple of weeks since I posted anything, but here are a few cards I've made. First up, my card for this week's copycatcards challenge, which is to use beads. I have done two rows of beads on my card. They are blue and purple. It's easier to see if you click to the bigger photo. The image is an illustration by Warwick Goble of a fairytale called The Six Swans. It is a clipart sample from Dover. The writing in the background is a passage from the tale, which I printed onto some textured paper.
This second card I made for last week's copycatcards challenge, which I set. It was to make a round card. I'd never done one before, so it was a challenge for me too. The background is embossed with the floral fantasy cuttlebug folder. The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo. The flower was white, but I sprayed it with toffee apple Glimmer Mist. It has a lovely gold sheen to it. The hearts were punched from the "overspray" on the white card I put under the flower when spraying.
And finally, this card was made for the copycatcards challenge the week before (I do like these challenges) to make a Christmas card featuring the colour blue.
