The paper I used for this background was lovely but I thought it needed something so out came the homemade texture paste , stencil and my chalk paints and voila, instant wording. It made to perfect background for this old photo of my niece who is getting married this year. (Goodness, hasn't time flown).

And the detail

Loved making this one, especially making the flowers. I am learning all the time. X

I so this card took a bit longer than most but I love the finished effect and that you can make the card and add a photo later when you decide who to send it to.
Another card for a man, i'm on a roll .
One of my favourites so far this year x

Classy Lady

This very busy rose paper was really hard to use. In hindsight I should have added another piece of white card stock in the background but I am still pleased with the overall effect.

This is my great grandmother looking as classy as always.

And the detail

So much hidden detail in this layout. Hope you like it as much as I do. Xx

Butterfly card

I found The best way to make this card is to take a selection of papers from a colour coordinated paper pad.
I was given the idea from a birthday card given to me last year from a friend.
The butterfly is awesome x

I really enjoy working with bright colours and I love a challenge so when everyone asked for a boy layout I saw these papers and thought "why not"

I needed to add some stamping so I went for Barbara Grays "Wee Folk" stamps and the words " What, When and Why from a tiny little set of stamps I got years ago.

And some of the detail

Now make a cuppa and follow the links to all of my fellow DoCraft Design Team friends.
