A Couple More pastel Cards


This is not my reminder post  but just a couple of extra cards that I was playing around with.

I stamped these flowers, one with black ink and the other with a pale ink colour to try some no-line colouring which I have not had much success with. This time I feel it went a bit better than my last attempt, The secret I think small image, easier than a big flower.

These are meant to be pastel but I'm not sure I succeeded here, looking a bit strong.
Anyway Copic coloured, fussy cut then added to a very pretty Die Impression plate from Altenew.
The 'Hello' die and background from  'The Ton' word set and after everything I realised the plate had impressed but not the bottom edge. Rather than try and cut off and probably ruin the whole card I added two rows of thin gold foil and white washi tape lined up perfectly.

This card is my no-line attempt. I was quite pleased, well happy enough to make a card with the fussy cut image. Added to a 3D embossed background from I'm not sure. Added the 'Thanks' die cut again from that set from 'The Ton'. Also decided to add the double line of washi tape as I quite liked the look even though it wasn't needed in this instance.

 I hope you enjoyed your visit and that you again soon. Now off you go to check out
