Halloween Owl

I was tossing ideas around the old brain and came up with this Tando chipboard Gothic arch combined with embossed metal using one of my early cuttlebug embossing folders and cut outs from some scrapbooking papers i had, ok so it's a little early for halloween but ............. I haven't posted much lately mainly because my projects are all works in progress in the form of mini albums but as soon as I have something to photograph i'll post it.

More white......

Today is my Mainly White workshop and one of the cards i'm doing is taken from my 'magazine cards', I've changed the die i used fore the corners but otherwise it's pretty much the same. The flowers were made using a six petal punch and the gentle distressing is done in Spun Sugar distress ink.

Mainly white.............

This week I'm prepping my saturday 'mainly white' workshop and this card pictured is one I put together after i'd decided on the designs I want to do for that,I've used various dies and edged the die cuts gently in spun sugar distress ink and altho' this card looks intricate it is, other than the pearls, flat so shouldn't warrant the large postage stamp. I'll show the other cards next but again i'm having camera trouble - I really feel a new little camera coming on.

I have been busy crafting but nothing finished to post on the blog, I'm prepping a couple of workshops and making cards for Rob Adams TV show at the end of the week so I decided to show some pics of cards I made from Rob's last cd, the TV presenters barely showed any of the cards we made altho' one was very taken with the most simple item - the little notebook pictured here.
