New Year Crafting

Hi there and Happy New Year to you all.
I spent an unusually lazy New Year's Day crafting with my downline and we both had a lovely time. We have both had this flu bug over the Christmas period so had not felt creative which was a bit of a problem as we each had 15 cards to make for our downline team swap. I am thrilled to say we both managed to complete our cards and they will be in the post tomorrow. Unfortunately I cannot show you my card design for the swap until after the team members have received them so I am sharing a card I've made using the oh so gorgeous "Growing Green" stamp set. I stamped the images onto Watercolour paper using black stazon ink and then used my markers and aqua painter to colour them in. I am not particularly good at colouring but I am pleased with the effects even I can achieve using this method and this stamp set just looks stunning watercoloured.I then matted and layered my stamped piece in order to create a larger A5 card and finished it off by also decorating the inside panel. I started paying more attention to my card inners in the latter pat of 2010 and I try to go that bit extra on every card I make nowadays.

I must get going as I need to get a few more things done before bedtime. I will try and do another upload tomorrow

Happy New Year Maria. So sorry to hear you have been struck by this terrible bug. Hope you are feeling better now. I am loving this card. Just put my order in for this set tonight and after seeing your card can't wait for it to arrive.
