Creating Cards!

Bline2a

I know ... cards by moi! I have been sat here today and playing ... playing with B Line stamps and card designs. I could n't be more relaxed if I tried! Loving every second of it I am! Better than a holiday in the Caribbean ... Ok ... that may be taking it a bit far!

I now have a little stack of handmade cards ... certainly a few more than is needed for the class I am designing and I just need to decide which ones are in and which ones are out!

I think this one may stay ... it does n't look that great in the photo but it is oodles of fun to make and proper inky messy play into the bargain ... just the way I like them!Bline2

The background involves plain white card ... lots of Distress Ink Blending ... some gold embossing ... a bit of stamping ... some Lord Tim of Holtz tissue tape ... you know Tim ... the man that would have knighted David Beckham and had real angels singing in chorus while he thanked him publicly for his debt to his country before announcing that he was too old to play and all the way throughout these proceedings building a scale model of Wembley Stadium with his feet using just two matchsticks and an edge distresser.

The background is sparkling as a result of some carefully placed Rock Candy Stickles and finally I embellished with a Fragment ... distressed with alcohol inks ... placed over the water coloured stamped image!

Do you know ... reading this post back ... I actually sound like I knew what I was doing for a change :0)

Have a good evening people ...

Laters!

This is gorgeous Linda, definitely needs to be on the "IN" pile!!

You did sound as though you knew what you were on about though haha and how about a holiday combining the Caribbean with crafting.... 100% one to save up for ;-)

Like Kath I wish I were nearer to attend your classes, maybe need to convince my husband and kids that we should relocate!
