Well I have finally dared to put out a card with a coloured image instead of a diecut! As you can see, it is an extremely simple image with just a few shades of brown, but I'm going in the right direction! I only have a few of the brown promarkers anyway. Mostly my colours are pinks, blues,and purples. I'm obviously going to have to increase my stash of promarkers! As Jenny commented yesterday, you really need to see them to see what the colours are like. My nearest craft shop is Hobbycrafts which is nearly 50 miles . Far from ideal. I mostly have to rely on the internet, or craft shows. I've got quite a few diecuts so I'll still be reverting back to them - especially when I want something to look a bit more professional than I can make it. The buttercup plaid backing paper was a freebie from Jak Heath. This is another great site, if you are not familiar with her work . I then just added some Prima flowers with liquid pearls for the centres. I tried some narrow ribbon with a tiny bow but it looked too much so out it went. The sentiment is a Craftwork Cards circle sentiment, mounted on a Spellbinders scalloped circle.
I think now I have broken out of my mould I'd better practice a bit more. I have some LOTV printed images, like digi stamps, which came free with a magazine (can't remember which magazine) so I've got something to play around with.
Well thanks for visiting. Hope you all have a great weekend.
love from Christine xx
