Another bird


This card incorporates another bird drawing that was given to me - very similar to the previous bird card shown earlier today - this time I've used an offcut that picks up the pink breast of the bird.

The last lady in black


This is the last of the black silhouette ladies, this time using a shaped card that was ready printed with the pattern, mounted on to a very pale lilac card blank, with just the addition of layered flowers and a Craftime sentiment.

Another lady in black


I've used another of those velvety silhouettes for this card. The panel on the left was recycled from some craft packaging (I think it was Docrafts, but not sure) - too good not to use - and the piece on the right is from my scraps box. The ribbon with gems was from Hobbycraft and the blog flowers are Craftime.

Lady in black


I was recently given a few blank cards with die cut silhouettes which have a velvety feel, so I've used one of them on this card. The embossed swirls on the silver mirror card were achieved with a dream weaver stencil. The glittered strips on the left were from Poundland the and sentiment strip is one that's been in a box for ages. The 'with love' sentiment was from Craftime.

A little bird told me ...


A while ago a friend gave me some lovely bird drawings and I've used one of them on this card. The background is an offcut of a piece of paper that originally came with a magazine and the scalloped edged piece was originally from a Kanban kit. The sentiment was generated on my Dymo letratag label maker. The image and the sentiment were matted on to the back of a recycled card received.
