Paris Rain

I made this card at a recent Craft Retreat using borrowed dies. I tried using Distress Oxide Inks for the first time. I blended the background with Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick. I then splashed with some Perfect Pearls Mist for the spotty background. I decided to make a shaker card as I was learning how to make one at the retreat. So this is only my second attempt at making a shaker card! When I saw this die, I was estatic and was keen to make a card as I went to Paris for the first time with my sister two years ago. Seeing the famous landmarks on this die made me very happy! I've added some photos below that I took of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. I'm adding this card to the current Fusion Card Challenge - Paris Rain and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Use more than one die. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Dies - Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle, MFT  Paris Skyline
Inks - Distress Oxide Inks, Perfect Pearls Mist
Sequins are from my stash

Bright Craft Retreat

I just came back from a Craft Retreat in Bright with some fellow bloggers. We had a wonderful 4 and a half days of crafting. I've lost my mojo for a while now and it was good to be 'enabled' by these ladies. I learnt how to make shaker cards (completed 4 shaker cards at the retreat), made two boxed cards and had lessons in Copic colouring! Lots of fun and serious crafting with these ladies! Here is one of the cards I made at the retreat for the current Fusion Card Challenge, using the sketch. I'm also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - For a Special Lady. Thanks for dropping by. I have more cards to blog over the next few weeks!!

Materials
Kaisercraft Curiosity 6.5 pad 
Stamps - Altenew Persian Motifs, MFT Connected alphabet
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles
