Three of my friends have not been very well lately, so I thought it was high time to send them a card and let them know I am thinking of them....
I'll take you through them briefly one by one.
I finished it all with some hearts and sentiments etc.
The hearts and words are from a Finnabair set, stamped, fussy-cut and coloured with Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and gelatos.
For card number 2 I created a background panel, stamped with Picket Fence Distress paint and the Tim Holz Distress Damask stamp and then inked with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso. Cut it into 3 strips and then mounted on white card.
The centre frame is a Sue Wilson die and matching stamp set (the background bit). The bee is another La Blanche stamp cut with one of the Sue Wilson dies in the set and then I added a crackle effect with an Indigo Blu crackle stamp.
To give it more of a shabby chic feel I added some flowers and leaves from my stash, coloured in matching colours and high lighted with Treasure Gold.
Finally a somewhat simpler textured card. The background was created in a similar way as card number 1, obviously using a different stencil. The focal image is the same too.
Well, that's it for today, thanks for your visit like always, happy crafting!
