A touch of teal ...

... for this card I've used papers and elements from a Docrafts 'touch of teal' kit that I bought a long time ago - probably four or five years. The card was made from offcuts, one piece being cut with a scalloped nestie and then brushed with black soot distress ink.

The card is based on the January: between the lines sketch on Kathy's waffle sketch file:

Colours are for Daring cardmakers January colour challenge:

Another one for Mema's crafts favourites of 2012

As I said in the previous post, Mema's crafts are asking us to show our favourite card of the year and they are allowing us to make two choices, so now I've had another hard decision to pick my next favourite from my original Top twelve of 2012.

I'm choosing a digital project I did in February 2012, which I had great fun creating - this was the original post: You are my queen of hearts:

Favourites of 2012 for Mema's crafts

Regular visitors to my blog will know that at the beginning of the year I post my 12 favourite cards of the previous year - one for each month, which I did for my Top twelve of 2012.

Mema's crafts are asking us to show our favourite card of the year - it was difficult to choose one for each month, but much more difficult to choose one for the whole year, but I think it has to be the birthday card that I made for mum in November, partly because I was really pleased with the card, but also because it was for my mum.
