Feeling Flaky!

Hi folks, I thought that I would show you one of the designs that I made for Kay and Alfie over at IndigoBlu This is one of the cards that I made for the show for Create and Craft last week. Unfortunately, this one didn't get an airing, I spotted it, but I knew what to look for. It was in the wrong pile, but never mind.

I have used a gorgeous stamp called 'Love Is', which I have stamped with Flitterglu, and then applied gilding flakes to show off all of the lovely details of the stamp. I have used the same stamp to create a border around the edge of my card. The heart has little birds and dragonflies around it. I have chosen slightly unorthodox colours for a romantic card, but I really like these caramel tones. The gilding flakes have a great verdigris tinge to them, so I added a pearlescent green card as a layer behind everything else.



I have made another one of those handmade flowers using the brass ring, and pouring seed beads into the Glossy Accents. These are such fun to make.


I am prepping samples for the next TV show as we speak, which is due to be aired on 29th January. I'll show you some more samples over the next few days. Thanks for stopping by, xx

This is gorgeous - I spotted some of your samples on the show and decided I need to try flitter glue with flakes. That flower is impressive

Another beautiful card. I really like the colours you've used and they compliment the stamps and flakes so well. Looking forward to seeing more samples.

This is beautiful Judith. I watched the show in the week as I had recorded it, I've decided that I must try out the flitter glue and flakes they are wonderful. Spotted some of your samples, but the show went to quickly to show all the samples that were there, so I will look forward to seeing what you post in the week.
