Beside the Sea

Hi All

Thought I would share a special card I made for the MD for his 50th Birthday.  Every year I make one with a boating theme for him and this year was no different.  I wanted the overall card to have a feel of the sea and sand and I think I achieved this.  He was really pleased with it.

I really like the gull - all the dies are Marianne Creatables apart from the Spellbinders circular ones. 

Have a good week.

Lavinia Stamps April Challenge - Lemon & Lime

Hi Everyone and I hope you are all looking forward to a lovely Easter Weekend.

It's another month and another challenge over at Lavinia Stamps and this month it is Lemon and Lime.  Lovely colour combinations so get out your colours and have a go - you could win a huge £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps.  You do not need a blog as it is also open to entry by e-mail.

Here are my samples for the month:

For the first one I used the bleeding art tissue technique on a canvas.  I used a stencil to give some background interest then stamped straight on the canvas with several Lavinia Stamps.  I stamped the Zen butterfly on a separate piece of card, coloured it then added it to the canvas with sticky pads to give it a raised effect.
For the second one I used brushos - Lemon and Emerald Green and stamped on Zen maple leaf.  I stamped another one on card and cut out a few to add and topped them off with gems.
The pictures do not really do them justice but I hope you like them. 
Thanks for looking.  Kx
