Fishing Friends

I finally finished a card off - well actually I finished it over a month ago and it has been sat on my craft desk in the conservatory, consequently the violet Copic shades had faded and touching up was a bit tricky, I find V12 fades quite a bit in the sun. This morning I added the text, the little bow and the flower to bling things up a bit. The snow and the centre of the snowflakes and flower is made with my pearl maker pen in crystal, this shade has a lovely mother-of-pearl effect that reflects the colours under and around it. I've had trouble with this one in the past, it tends to run a little, but now that the weather is colder it's a lot easer to use - so in the summer I'll pop it in the fridge for a couple of hours! I've added lots of Stardust Stickles as well, it is a Christmas card after all!

I found a couple of challenges I can enter, but will hold fire on the LOTV challenge as I do have another card in the making. Totally Papercrafts have a Christmas theme, Stampin' for the Weekend have a friendship theme, perfect for my Fishing Friends LOTV stamped image, and the theme on the Fun With Shapes and More blog is 'cold as ice'.

  2. Love the violets with the blues & the little ribbon with the twine is quite delightful. I like the way your snowflakes are tucked behind the image too & pick up on the spotty design in your paper.

  6. Hi Annie great to see your card. It's absolutely beautiful, gorgeous colours and a lovely image.

    I just read about your troubles with the planners. It's awful the bother they give people just because they can. What makes it worse is that it's upsetting for your Mum too. New kitchen looks as if it's going to be really lovely when it's finished.

    Take care,
