Sympathy card

This sympathy card uses the Bokeh technique. Its a fun technique that can be used for any sort of card. Changing the background colours that have been sponged on can make it  a card that needs very little else added to it. In this card I have used the leaves from Butterfly Basics stamp set with the matching Butterfly Thinlit.

More Irresistibly yours cards

Once a month I do Volunteer work at our local craft shop. Usually it is fairly quiet so I take a few crafting bits and pieces . Not sure what happened last week but I left a few stamp pads behind and only had Tangelo Twist, Lost lagoon,Hello Honey and black. These are not my favourite colour combinations. They go well together but I am more of a purple/red/green girl. Anyway these are what I made.
I wanted to play with the Irresistibly Yours specialty dsp some more. So this is another pattern in the pack. I have teamed it up with the Big day stamp set.
Here is another card using the same pattern but different stamp set.
This time I have used the Balloon Bash stamp set. And reversed the colours.

Irresistibly Your....

The lovely Irresistibly Yours specialty paper available free from sale-a bration has been used as the background for this card. The paper is embossed with various patterns and when colour is added the emboss parts resist taking the colour up. In this card I used the star paper . I have used sponges to add colour to the paper. I saw a card like this on Kathryn Ruddick blog.
The stamp set is also a freebie from sale-a-bration.
have you placed your order yet to be able to earn one of these freebies?

New technique

This card showcases a new technique that is around  called Bokeh (pronounced Boukay). I cased this card from Billie Moan as it used the new butterfly thinlit from the occasions catalogue.
The technique involves some sponging of different colours, using white craft ink and circles  of varying sizes and daubers.
To get the colours in the butterfly I have used vellum that has been coloured in with blendabilities that has been adhered to the cut out shape of the butterfly.
stamps:Butterfly basics, Gorgeous grunge
Paper:Black, white, vellum
Ink:Blackberry bliss, lost lagoon,Hello Honey, Versamark, white craft
Accessories:Butterfly thinlit,linen thread, rhinestone,sponges, dauber, circle punches, embossing powder

Sending wishes your way

This is my take of a card that I saw made by Debbie Mageed as seen here.
I have completely changed the colours and haven't used as much lace. I coloured the image using Blendies. The stamp set used is from Butterfly Basics.
