Coffee Pot

Hello Lovelies - how are you? I apologise again for being such a bad blogger - I'm trying to keep up with too many things at the moment - hopefully by this time next week things should start to settle down a bit  - with my sister being over here I am trying my best to make the most of it all. We go off to Center Parcs at the weekend - really looking forward to some quality time with her and the girls.

Today I would like to share with you the make I did for the ladies to follow at coffeepot on Monday - it was based on one from the workshop I did with Jo - we all had fun and the results were all very different - but unfortunately I didn't take any pics whilst there - I took these once i had got back home:


I used a clarity stencil with a moon mask applied to card then used sailboat blue adirondack ink and a little raspberry applied with clarity brushes. I used torn paper to create the landscape. Once complete I removed the stencil and used wee folk stamps from clarity plus a clarity word stamp.


Finally I used a pen to outline everything - then added glitter glue and added a border with a sharpie pen.

Here's some more pics from Cornwall - can't believe I'm still posting these! All beach themed - different beaches though!





It was lovely!!!!!

Hoping to get around to visit ASAP. Please forgive me! Big Hugs rachel x

  2. A beautiful card Rachel, such a lovely scene.
    You really don't have to apologise for being a bad blogger - you are always so busy and family always comes first,
    Fabulous photographs, you were very brave going in the sea - it must have been a bit on the chilly side!

  7. No need to apologise at all Rachel, there are just not enough hours in the day sometimes and I admire how much you actually manage to fit in to your day, it makes my own efforts look rather feeble.
    Lovely frosty blue card and fab pictures too.

  18. Love the frosty blues on your card - so pretty - and envying your Cornish beaches... seem to have missed out on summer and holidays this year (except for a quick three night flit to France just now, so I shouldn't really complain!).
