A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge 22

Hi All,

Well today I have decided to try my luck at another Challenge, this time I have decided to enter A Gem of a Challenge.

For this challenge you have to follow a Sketch, which they have done amazing (the Design Team are amazing, for there Sketches).

Well here is the card I made.

For this card I chose to use a Pink Gem design which was coloured in using Pro-markers, the Design Papers were from do-crafts, they were Mini Polka and Ornamental Flourish both in the Heather colour. I also used some paper from my stash which was the plain colours. The sentiment was computer generated.

I also added some flowers and also some gems.

I would like to enter this into A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge 22.

Hope you like it.

Things I made in Hospital (3)

Hi All,

This in the final installment in my Things I Made in Hospital. And the final thing I made. The Occupational Therapist asked if I had ever done some Watercolours, of course I hadn't. So I sat down for a try, and I was quite pleased with the outcome.

All the best.

Things I made in Hospital (2)

Hi All,

This another Silk Painting card which I made using the same technique as previously mentioned. This time I put the normal salt on the wet painting, instead of rock salt, when I came back a week later it was impossible to remove the salt. So I basically turned the painting over, so what you are seeing is the back of the design. But leaving the salt on the painting it does make it glisten.

All the best.

Things I Made in Hospital (1)

Hi All,

My Mum thought it would be good to show you what I made while I was in hospital. I made them with the Occupational Therapist who was in charge of Leisure.

This is the first thing which I tried, its a Silk Painting Card. You have to throughly wet all the silk and then drop several colours down, you can then put salt onto the silk to create a random pattern. I then had to leave it until it was dry, when I put it into a triple aperture card

All the best.

I'm Back with Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 166 Sketch Time!

Hi All,

Well I am REALLY BACK now, although my Mum is doing the bows on my cards, but I am doing everything else with one the one hand that is working after my Stroke, which I had in November last year.

I was looking through the web and found this card competition at Cute Card Thursday. I think completing a card which has a sketch is easier than having to think of one yourself, which if I am being honest it's easier for me.

For this card I chose to use a stamp that my Mum had (sorry I can't remember). The image I chose to colour in with pro-markers.

The blue card was from my own stash, but the patterned paper was from do-crafts, it was in the Aqua colour called Ornamental Flourish and also Floral.

The sentiment was computer generated.

Then I added some flowers, some self-adhesive Pearls and also a Butterfly.

I would like to enter this card into the Cute Card Thursday competition.

Bye for now and I hope you like it
