My latest creation

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog, all comments are greatly appreciated.... I really enjoyed making this card, i love working with black & any other colour.... The carnation was made with pink lace (from my local suppliers) i just rolled it round my finger to get the desired effect. I used a Marienne die, card candy, sorry but i don't know the make of the stamp, (i must get organised) I'll add a sentiment as & when needed.

Card for a gentleman

This is a card i made ages ago, I  used Kanban paper for the background, Stamped & coloured the waistcoat with Promarkers Then decoupaged it, I stamped the watch & mounted it on a round wooden disk & glued some chain behind it, The Christian Dior buttons are from an old jacket & I stuck a piece of a fabric sample on the base..... PS... the buttons belonged to my late Dad.... I'll never part with this card x
