Pink & Black

I love this colour combination! This is my entry for NAC#76 which is a colour challenge this week - Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Basic Black. I have used one of the stamps from Flower Shop and the sentiment is from Regarding Dahlias. I hope you have had a lovely weekend - April x

Workshop Photos

I had such a lovely time at last week's Flower Shop workshop - thank you to everyone who attended. Here are some photos of what we made. I love all the variations of cards that are created. It was a great evening.
I love the combination of Flower Shop stamps with Gingham Garden DSP. Very bright! Just what you want with the grey weather outside.
Here is Lou's gorgeous variation of the gift box, made with the Envelope Punch Board. So pretty!
 Here is an action shot of the 'Black Magic' technique. Love the half eaten biscuit!
Here is a lovely example of the finished card made with this technique.
Here is one of those rare quiet moments when everyone is absorbed in creating...
And finally some cat shaming. The sign would read, 'I sat on the card that Ruth had spent ages on. It had Dazzling Details on it. I transferred the glitter to my bottom and smudged all the ink. Ruth had to return the next day to re-make the card. I love to help at workshops'.

Sketch Challenge

Here is my entry for the NAC#75. The central stamped image is from Peaceful Petals. I embossed the image with clear embossing powder and sponged Pool Party on top. The DSP is from the Fresh Prints stack and the cardstock used is Perfect Plum. I've added some silver glimmer paper on the butterflies. I hope you like it!
