Debs and I, and another friend of ours, Charmaine, went down to the woods again yesterday to another great workshop by Judith. Actually it wasn't strictly the woods - more New Forest.
As always we had two new patterns to work with. If you read Judith's Blog you will see that she summed us all up pretty accurately when she said we would moan about painting. Yep - we did but we promised her we would persevere and I am glad that we did. I wasn't 100% happy with my painting but pleased with it as a first go. Need more practice with moving the brush in circles to prevent a hard line. But Judith came to the rescue and we were allowed to dorso on the back to diffuse some of the hard edges. A great tip. This morning when we finished our cards Debs and I also added a little Faber Castell pencil shading to the front and that made it much more betterer - as my children used to say.
So here is the morning card - Boutique 'Frilly Dance Dress'.
Just a little dorso work behind the part oval, whitework embossing and a little gold writing and bobbles. A lovely relaxing card to do and another lovely design from Judith.
The extras I have used were a Martha Stewart punch and gems from stash on the first card and a fantasy flower of my own - with added Bedazzles - from Debbees Cd - Paper Flower Boutique on the second card
