Good evening, how have you been today?
This is sooooo exciting. I have created a couple of Miss Sparkle cards for a DT call at One Stitch at a Time. This one should be sub-titled 'Almost clean and simple' could also be known as 'Dare to dream' - dare I?????
This lovely stamp is from 'Stitchy Bear Stamps' and is called 'Sparkle'. This is not my usual style of card but I have been collecting promarkers for a while, so this has given me a good opportunity to play with them. I think the colouring has worked quite well. I approached the making of this card in a different way to usual and have learnt many lessons. Usually I collect all my papers and things together first, but for this one the beautiful image reminded me of one of my favourite flowers, the Fuchsia, so I set about gathering the colours in promarkers and completing the image only to find it has taken me days, literally days to find the papers and layout I am happy with and yet it is so simple. But I have got there in the end - perseverance is the name of the day. Because of this pretty fairy's name I have used Sakura glitter pens and Stickles on the image and green mount and the sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, where Ann often puts out some freebies.
I am experimenting with some other layouts and am posting another design using the same stamp. I have been having great fun, so have a look and see what you think.
Have a lovely week. I am really looking forward to the weekend - Ken, my friend Yvonne and I are off to the Isle of Wight Music Festival. I went last year for the first time in my life and enjoyed the atmosphere and listening to some fabulous music, so I just had to do it again. Of course there is a treat in all of this - on the IoW you can get bed and breakfast and not have to sleep in a tent. Yeh, music, fun and a decent bed to sleep in.
Take care, have fun and let me know if you are going to the festival as well.
Luv and hugs. Brenda xxxx
