Thinking of you

Hello ...

We're having some wild weather here at the moment and yet I'm still finding Ladybirds everywhere in the house ... How weird

I've been spending time in my craft room making a few cards and keeping up with my DT work ... But yesterday I had to make a card for my husband's friend ... He lost his only brother this week
It's always hard to have to make a sympathy card 


I hope this lets him know that we care


I used the inlaid die technique and I always think these little birds can say so much


I got myself one of the 'wink of stella' pens and used it on the leaves ... What fabulous stuff that is...

I seem to be splattering my cards all the time at the moment ... I love that TH pewter paint ... sadly I've knocked the bottle over 3 times now so just had to order a new one

The card stock started as plain white and though it looks as though I sponged it, it is in fact a digital from Pink Petticoat ... Ombre Paper selection. I love these and if you don't happen to have the colour inks to sponge, your short on time or you're not too clever at blending, I would highly recommend these.

I hope you have a lovely weekend ... stay warm and safe

Till soon

Gorgeous paper, Ros, & perfectly crafted sympathy card. I've never tried a digital paper--not too good with printing, but may have to give it a try.

Beautiful design for the sympathy card...those little birdies make it perfect! You are very good at "splattering" your cards...I am still learning at that! And thanks for the tip on the papers, I will have to take a peek at them!!

Manuela said...

your sympathy card is very pretty!
The ombre paper looks super!

Stella said...

Subtle and serene; perfect for a sympathy card. This technique adds a lovely touch to this card; love the birds.

I really REALLY like that inlay technique and your splatters. Apparently your crafty space felt the need to be decorated with pewter paint. hee hee Can you blame it. Lovely Ros.

Such a beautiful, winter-themed creation! Love those silhouettes, and your bit of silver shimmer is the perfect finishing touch! It's sure to be appreciated.
