A couple of cards for you today. This first one was inspired by Marion's card at Muse:
And by this photo at Winnie & Walter's Playdate No. 1 challenge. I followed the colours of the clothing and interlocked the hellos to mimic the way that the family is interlocked. I know the bokeh is part of the frame, but I wanted it to be represented in my card anyway.
I'm also entering it into the current FUSION challenge, where I've just used the sketch:-
Stamps: Winnie & Walter: The Big The Bold and The Happy; STAMPlorations Vignette Retro Mod Shapes (circle)
And for my next trick, I've made a video for you. I did a stall at a pop-up cafe in the village yesterday. I wanted to take some encaustic wax cards to sell but needed to make a new batch. When I posted some wax cards on my blog at the beginning of the year, some of you had asked for a tutorial, so I thought I may as well video the process while I was making this new batch. (Don't worry, the video is less than 3 minutes long - I speeded/sped? it up. Whatever, it's quick.)
The bad news is that there were only 12 customers all morning. The good news is I sold a wax card and a framed wax picture, and the organiser has asked me to try for the village fair later in the year.
Here's the card that's featured in the video:
I'm entering it into the challenge at Clearly Besotted - In Flight (see the little birds?). Sentiment from the Fabulous Fuchsias set.
