Good evening bloggers...
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.
I want to say a warm welcome to all my new followers and a big thanks for all the lovely comments that have been left. I really do appreciate it :)
I've been making a card for my Niece's 21st Birthday which is in June. She's not a girly girl so I didn't want to have lots of pink and flowers. She's a big fan of Formula 1 car racing and is off to see the British Grand Prix later this summer as her birthday treat. I've chosen Chequered flag Tilda because I thought she would be perfect for the F1 theme.
I've coloured her with copics and edged around the oval with fired brick using an old Clartity stamp.
I've been seeing lots of lovely cards using the new distress markers. Love the soft effect they create. So tempted to get them for my Birthday later this month :) Not sure how much longer the will power can hold out.
I found the '1991' brad at a local craft shop - just right for a 21st card. The little keys are from The Hobby House.
The papers are Portobello Road from Papermania and have been distressed with walnut stain.
I hope I've got the right balance - it does seem odd not putting flowers on.
