A Few Crafty Samples

Hello there,

I hope that you're all keeping well and happy.

I'm here today to share a few more of my samples from the last Crafty Individuals shows on Create and Craft:

The first card has a mandala that was designed by my crafty friend, Lynne Kirton, so I really wanted to do her proud and I'm happy with how the card turned out.  I've used Brushos in the background and then a gold glitter embossing powder to compliment the rich orange colour.

The last one with the ladybird on was a real labour of love as I used the front of the ladybird to create my border.....well, it seemed like a good idea at the time!

As you can probably see, I've enjoyed using my sequins this time around.

That's all from me for today but I'll be back soon with the last of my samples from the shows xx

Three terrific cards. I love your mandala with the butterflies and beautiful colours...striking. The border of roses on the second one is lovely...why do I never think to do that? and the offset square with that super butterfly in the centre.... Another great design. A border of if you hadn't said I wouldn't have realised...very clever and obviously time consuming. Something you will not be repeating in a hurry I guess? You are a whizz with your imagination! xx

Three fabulous cards Sandra and I love the purple and gold used for the mandalas and the matted background, and the Brushos make a wonderful inky background. I love the added backgrounds to the second and third with the roses to accompany the beautiful floral butterfly, and the very clever border made up of the head and antennae of the ladybird and then coloured in that bright and pretty coordinating red. x

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
