Julie's Card

Hello there! I do hope you've had a Merry Christmas! We've had a lovely time - very peaceful and family focused - really lovely!
Today I want to share a birthday card with you that I made for my lovely friend Julie ... I have used some paperartsy stamps from Elizabeth Borer that I got in the Countryview Crafts Advent offers.

I stamped the circular image on watercolour card and coloured using inktense pencils. The background was done direct to card and I used distress inks - lucky clover and wilted violet. I then added the other stamps and coloured parts in in the inktense pencils.

I also made a pennant for a swap I am involved in today - the theme was monochrome - this time I used Aallandcreate  stamps ...
No automatic alt text available.

Again the background was distress and the main flower was done in inktense pencils!

Its a funny inbetween time of year but I am really enjoying it this year - so glad we still have another week before school starts on the 7th - bliss!!! Hope you enjoy your break too!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
