Ideas in the Middle of the Night!!

25th January 2015

Last night I woke with a start at 3am with ideas for some birthday cards I need to make, then took ages to go back to sleep!!! 

Tonight I will have a book and pencil beside my bed so that I can jot down any ideas I have in the early hours!

I finished the card I started yesterday...


...I do like the effect of hand stitching.

This is a card for my youngest son, can you guess how old he will be?

I used textured hand made paper to clean my Gelli plate roller as a background...

....printed in black....


....then over printed in sea blue...


...shadow effect, quite like it, hope he does!

A friend asked me to make a card for her granddaughter who likes pink...

....I layered my hand dyed silk onto dyed linen then attached to white linen, cut out the letter I...


....and machine embroidered, added seed beads....


....I am also going to add a detachable tag....

....to be finished tomorrow!
