Burlesque

I know that I say this a LOT but this week has absolutely flown by, hasn't it? I think it's gone quicker than any other week, yet and what a week it's been! The weather was absolutely horrendous here in NW London yesterday...rain, thunder, lightning and MORE rain and even though the garden needed the water, my little strawberry plants took a right old battering and don't even mention the herbs which have been badly bruised and battered by the heavy rain. I think this is a case for Richard Jackson's Flower Power, I hope that will give them the boost they need...

Anyway, enough about my days acting out "The Good Life"...and back to the cards. I hope you like today's share, which was a special card that I made for a friend's birthday.
This is an stamp from Kanban and I have used it in a previous card but I just love her so much and couldn't resist bringing it out again because I thought it would be perfect for my friend.
The image itself is handpainted with a combination of Kuretake's Art & Graphic Pens and Perfect Pearls, mixed with a little water. I added glitter highlights to the feathers on the dress, to give it that va va voom. And finally, to go with this glamorous lady, I made a selection of paper flowers, using Paperartsy's grunge flower die and the Retro Flower punch from EK Success and added them all down the side of the card.


Well, I'd better be going...there is a cup of coffee to drink and lots of crafting to be done.
Hope you all enjoy your long weekend. Have you got anything exciting planned?
See you all next week!
Love Emma

  5. I saw those storms on the TV coverage of Chelsea, but thankfully we only had showers, nothing so dramatic, although the wind has been something else. Think we've had Summer this year!!
    Your card is beautiful, now I know what the flowers were for on your desk!!
    Your friend will be absolutely thrilled to receive it.
