I’ve been playing with the Decorative Masks of late & loving the different looks I can achieve with these. I have also been creating classes using them for Crafty Creations Classes – my volunteer classes.
For my card today, I saw something similar on Pinterest sometime ago & filed it in the back of my mind to have a play over the Christmas Break. Looking at the original, my doesn’t look much like it but that is a good thing.
I’ve used the gorgeous “Birthday Blooms” from the current 2016 Occasions Catalogue & team it up with the greeting from “Sky is the Limit” which is from 2016 SAB.
I used one of the Decorative Masks from the “Happy Patterns” as I sort of wanted to create a wall which the Rose could sit on. Not sure if I pulled it off, but I’m happy with the result.
My Pearls have been coloured with a Pink & Yellow Permanent Marker. The colours are so close to Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight that I couldn’t have planned it better if I tried.
I finished my Rose off by adding “Wink of Stella – Clear” to the flower. I did try to get a good photo of all the lovely shinny bits, but unfortunately no luck.

I just love this gorgeous little Stamp Set. Fantastic for so many techniques. On our card, we played with the Blender Pen, Aqua Painter, paper Pierced & Freehand.
My card today is one we created in my Friday’s volunteer class yesterday. We decided to take a much earned break from the Christmas Cards.
I had a number of kids in the class as it is school holidays in Qld & they usually like to come along, so I like to aim the cards at them. Mind you, the ladies love creating them too.
For my card, I used both the Blender Pen & Aqua Painter along with Markers & Inks. I will warn you that if you are using both, please be a little patient in the colouring. This way you are guaranteed to end up with a lovely result.
I started off by casing the card on Page 44 of the Catalogue but as I went along, it sort of developed a mind of it’s own, so I just went with the flow. I especially love how the footpath developed. I bet if I tried to do it again, it wouldn’t happen.
I also love how her eyes have lit up at the site of the Butterfly landing on her hand. The DSP I used has long since retired, but worked perfectly with the image. You could change it out to a more current DSP.
As you can see, I carried the footpath onto the card inside.
