Patterns #2

Having not done a lot crafting recently I was on a roll today. I needed another card to send to a friend and wanted to use Patterns in a different way for the Paperartsy challenge  see here for details Out came a long neglected embossing folder - the black card was then hi-lighted with treasure gold.  The flowers are JOFY flowers stamped onto some small design patterned papers and fussy cut out.  So rry for the awful photo

Thank you for looking xx

Patterns #1

The current Paperartsy challenge is Patterns - where to start ........see here

As usual I didn't really have a plan in mind.  I started with some painty stripes in Coral and South Pacific then added patterns with the small Ellen Vargo stamps. A bit too bright at this stage so I applied a wash in Chalk.  

I haven't used my Infusions for ages so with a sprinkle of A bit jaded and a spray of water here's the finished background.

 At this point I was reminded of the seaside.  With the addition of three little JOFY beach huts here's my finished card

Thank you for looking X
