Inspired by the Uniko inspiration (Wonderful World with optional twist of Thanks) and colours at CAS Watercolour. (2nd birthday).

I smooshed distress inks, heated embossed the leaves (from the Uniko Gerbera set) in white and fussy cut them.

AECP All About Layering 2

This is my project for the All About Layering 2 module of the Altenew Educator Certification Program.

I was inspired by the some of the watercolour examples in class. 

The flower from Peony Bouquet was stamped and masked, the leaves stamped and everything loosely watercoloured.  I wanted to do something a bit different with the sentiment, not sure if it works.

CAS Christmas GD

I'm very honoured to be this month's Guest Designer at CAS Christmas where the theme is "Bird" and there is still plenty of time to join in the fun.

I used a holly triptych die, sponged with green ink, was going to use a sponged background but decided to go for the soft grey card then faffed about where to position the bird, centre or right?

Thank you for visiting my blog!

AECP - Let It Shine

Here is my project for the "Let It Shine" module of the Altenew Educator Certification Program.
I was inspired by the classes which included using sparkle pens and metallic papers and what better than a Christmas card to have sparkle and shine. 

Some of the die-cuts and the sentiment are gold foiled card and some are coloured with sparkle pens, which is hard to photograph and to see in picture.
