It's soooo scary - the first time you connect it all up and press the go button.
See my gentle little squirts!!!!
I have been making Artist's background paper for an order for gift voucher cards.
Basically Artist's paper are layers of colour in different techniques. This is 3 oil pastel colours blended - then a 'squirt' of Copic mid brown - splatted with a bit of gold ink - then over stamped with a Chinese style text. It's huge fun to make these back grounds - I have a short tutorial for one technique) on my site in 'designs and how to' bit - but there is loads more I could add

I am starting to think of the Christmas fates (got 5 booked so far), and I thought this would be great filled with sweeties - chocolate - tiny smellie miniatures.
I thought - what a real cutie baby pressie!
So now we have a baby sock - filled with baby miniature smellies!
Yes - I love it when a plan comes together

A7 (sooo cute) - with matching tags.
Coloured with Copics.
It really does make a difference to the look of the whole thing.
Added glitter (glamour dust - silver), tiny star sequin and gems,- oh, and 3D glaze on Rudolph's nose (really effective).

These are fairly simple cards (A5 size, stamped and embossed cross topper, coloured with Copic ink and matted twice) with an inner that has the prayer printed on it in sepia colour in a hand written looking font. I do them at cost, just as a service really, so they need to be simple and quick to do: just thought there might be people out there who might need a little help from or thank you to God

But that's not the whole story
Have been tinkering with 'exploding' cards.
It's an old calligraphy / origami trick - you open the card and a folded paper inner opens out.
All I did was trim the shape so the it ended up that '+' shape - that made it hidden in the tag and you got a Halloween surprise.
That enough? - naaah - added a few hanging bats.
Cut from the Trick or Treat Papers - and just back to back - with a bit of silver thread
I know - I am sure I must be Bats too!!
