Girls and boys

This week for class I decided to go very girlie for one card and masculine for the second.

I shared how to make these lovely layered tattered floral flowers ( single handedly helping to keep Royal Mail in business with these babies !)

The greeting is by Stampin' Up

And for the second more masculine card we used the emboss resist technique with distress inks to create the tag

The sentiments on this card are a mix of computer generated and a stamp by Inkadinkadoo.

We used wax rubs to highlight the embossing on the diamond shaped borders.

Todays sketch (Wednesday)

I am much happier with the face on this one. You may think I am being persnickety when I pull my sketches to pieces, but, being able to critique your own work and spot the weak points is a big step in learning to correct the mistakes. I very much need to work on faces and especially hands, why are hands so awkward ?

I have finished my postcard for Darcy's postcard challenge, a whole two days early, inspiration struck whilst I was texting back and forth with Anita last night, and yes Anita, An Idiot Abroad was my inspiration, but I will leave it there, I am not going to give you any more clues lol, and I will share my postcard on Friday when Darcy has the linky set up.


  1. Beautiful cards this week.
    Loving the drawing too.
    Can't believe you've done your postcard already, think I might have to watch that programme. The only thing I can think of is coffee!!!
