Hiya folks!!

Been ages since I blogged any makes. Me bad - but then, the mojo has taken a bit of a hit in the last couple of weeks what with things happening around here. Can't go into that though at the moment.

BUT - having been away last weekend on a crafty retreat, I suddenly found myself with a bit! I managed a new doodle, which I released yesterday, and I also made a card with my 'Rosalee' image released a week or so ago. Here it is:

I have used some of the humungous stash of goodies that Amy gave us all to play with - the gorgeous filigree corners (edged with green ink), the cream, green and pink cardstock, large green gem, pink cosmic shimmer and a Marianne die that I bought for the flower.

For the Rosalee image, I coloured with watercolour pencils, and smudged pink ink round the image using some stencil brushes from the goody bag. This isn't showing up too well on these pics. The image has also been layered for extra depth.

As I said, the flower is made from a Marianne doily die I bought, with this flower die that comes with it. The centre is made using a punched shape, topped off with green gem. I saw some of the ladies at the weekend using the new die that makes these rolled up rose shapes, but I also noticed in blogland that these can be made just by cutting a circle roughly, and then cutting round on the inside (like we used to do at school to make spiral hangers), so that's what I did to make the two adjacent flowers. I inked the edges in a dark pink, and the used the cosmic shimmer for some bling.

Papers are from an old Tinker & Co set. Hot pink card from my own stash. Fern shapes cut with a sizzix die using green bazzill. An MS punch was used for the loopy edge on the pink paper, and some white gems were added, these were from my own stash too.

I'll be back later in the week to show you what I made at the crafty weekend, not that we made much - too much boozing and giggling going on for that!! LOL

Catch ya later peeps!
