Just couldn't manage it with this card when I saw Christines Christmas wreath, I knew exactley what I was going to do..........trad again!!!
The wreath was coloured with pro markers then I went over the fruit with sakura glaze pen, cut it out with the nesties cut a bigger aperture in the card then hung the wreath with ribbon. A little ..... dare I say it.......peeloff round the circle and a very easy card was made!!
Hope you can join in the challenge over at DU2DS this week, it cant be difficult using green red and a digi stamp at ths time of year!
While I'm at it I'll show you one of the canvas's I made while I was away on the retreat in Claxby
This is for my Dad and I know he'll love it though I'm sure when he opens it he will get a bit emotional. When mum died we had a ecologically friendly burial so I laid her out, and decorated the wicker coffin with ivy, sloes and other greenery, All the time I was making the ivy garland a little wren was flitting around the room, chuntering away at me and sitting on the edge of the coffin. I dont know if you are aware but wrens are the smallest uk bird and are fiercely territorial and have been known to see off birds three times their size.. Now my mum was 4'10'' fiercely in control of her clan and has been known to see off many a larger foe with equal tenacity. Somehow that little bird was a real comfort, so whenever we see wrens now we think of mum.
Isn't it fantastic that in the most dire of circumstance there is still joy to be found in such little things!
Ok, now you've done with the tissues (or the bucket) I'll say tara and hope to be visiting your blog soon
