At last, it looks as if Summer has finally arrived and with it, I have the worst bout of flu that I have suffered for a long time! I have no voice, can't control the sneezing and a throat that feels as if I've swallowed razor blades!! Oh well, never mind...it could be worse, I could have 16 projects to finish before Wednesday morning! *thinks* Arghhhhhhhh...I do! LOL and as they say, C'EST LA VIE!!!
Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and looking forward to a hot, sunny week ahead!
I've got a huge amount of cards to show you all but thought I would start with this one, which I made for the Kuretake shows on Create & Craft, last Friday. I hope you like it...
I just love working with Kuretake products because, if you know what I mean...they aren't just pens. You really can do so much with them ~ they are THAT versatile and the pigment of these pens is just so rich. They are fabulous, fabulous products to work with! And would you believe that the main part of the image on this card, was made up entirely of my doodles of flowers using the Calligraphy pens and blending two pen colours together? Isn't it a great effect? I then used the Tim Holtz butterfly, to stamp over the flower background, distressed the edges, added some gorgeous backing papers from K & Company, one of Tim's famous quotes, a die cut rosette and last but never least, a flourish.
Don't forget to check out the Kuretake website and their newly launched blog, for lots of inspiration and techniques for how to use all their pens.
Hope you all have a fabulous evening!!
See you soon and thanks for stopping!
