Some Old Artwork

This first card was a commission for Keeley who used to travel on my train each day. She wanted something suitable to give to her boyfriend, Josh to celebrate one year together. I wanted something masculine so went with the Papermania Urban stamps, keeping the colours limited to reds with some perfect pearals sprayed on mixed with Fired Brick distress reinker.

This piece was made for my colleague to give as a birthday gift to a friend after her original gift didn't work. (someone else bought the same thing!) It was a small canvas covered with some pretty paper & the butterflies were die cut using my Memory Box die.
Stamped quotes Tim Holtz.

This next card was made for my work colleague Lesley who gave birth to her second daughter Maisie, sister to Gemma.
Mum and baby are doing very well. Gemma adores her baby sister.

This final card was made in March during the time I had no computer. It was a thank you card to the people who kindly took my ailing machine backwards & forwards to the repairers.

Hi Paula! I love the white on white design of your one card and the ornate white frame of the last one - terrific cards! Thanks for the She Art link - so many different ways to go with that concept. I love making the layered backgrounds the most and need to explore other ways to decorate them too rather than just with figures. Glad you're back online!!
