Well that's it over for another year, where did the time go to. I hope everyone had a lovely time and managed to find time to rest, and of course craft!
I have made this card, with which I have tried a few new things. I have used, for the first time, watercolour card from Crafters Companion, it is really thick, but did the job. I stamped using Black Soot Distress Ink and tried to draw out the ink with a damp paintbrush, probably needs a bit more practice but looks okay! I used some Sakura glue pen on the umbrella and sprinkled with glitter. The glossy accents on the puddle and raindrops doesn't quite show so well in the photo (sadly Santa did not bring a new camera, boo hoo). I have gone around the image with grey chalks to give a slight frame. The white card blank is Craftwork Cards and I have to say, they are such stunning quality. I wouldn't consider using any other card blanks, and anyway, at the rate I make my cards, the two packets I have will last me a few years!
