Variation on a Theme


As you can see I have been playing around with colours...I am still doing the cards for my friend, but also need to get some done for the two shops that buy my cards, especially with Mother's Day only being a few days away - I have also got a box of them in the Staff Room at school so I am wanting to drop a couple of these up there as well...With 'LOVE' as the sentiment, they could be for any occassion - I tend to do that when they are for the shops that buy my cards, that way they can be used for any occassion!
I am also using the challenges to get some ideas and have managed to use three challenges, Flourishes, which we have to use beads on our card - you gotta love those beads - I have used half gems, which I haven't used for a while...I normally use Nail Bling....but these needed something just slightly bigger....the OCC and CCEE Challenges are for Mother's Day Cards...
I have water coloured them and then sponged around the edges, I also used the Scalloped Border Punch to do the fancy corners, which I am loving - thank to my SU Demo Ann who showed us at my Scrapbooking Night - I am on a 'learning curve' and just love learning new things...
I am really enjoying trying the different colour combinations...for those of you who saw the three I did yesterday, I would love to hear which one of these two you like most...each time I do one I think...this one....then I do the next...maybe it depends on the day!! LOL!!
Thank you for looking and for your comments, especially on my SCS gallery...I really enjoyed reading what colours you preferred...it was pretty close but I think the yellow was just a little bit in front - we will see after these ones...I think I am going to be changing to hydrangers...but who knows...I still have 6 images to colour.....

  1. These cards are just lovely. I really like the colour combination you chose and the ripped corners look very effective.
