Masculine Birthday card

My Mum talked to me over the holidays and told me that she had to buy some cards for upcoming birthdays and that when she got to the till the cost was extortionate - if I make cards, why don't I sell them? Well, to be honest I'd been thinking about it for a while… Continue reading Masculine Birthday card

So I'm late to the party, but I got some alcohol inks and Yupo paper and I had a little play! I wanted my card to be on the greener end of the spectrum so I used 'Turqouise', 'Limeade' and gold mixative. I used my flet tool to spread the gold mixative and it all… Continue reading Thank you card using alcohol inks

Niece’s 10th Birthday card

OMG!! I just can't believe my middle niece is 10!!! Where does the time go??? I wanted to make a fairy/magical/mythical card for her (because she won't believe in the magic for much longer...
