Some of them just leap out at you and asked to be picked, but then there are others where deciding which to show is a bit of an 'eeny meeny mo' exercise! Anyway, these are they:
Rose Script Anniversary
I was pleased with this card because I tried a technique called 'under the edge' die
cutting for the first time and I felt the Promarker colouring of the rose worked well.
I have chosen this one because it was quite a complicated card to make and I love
these stamps, and also I was so pleased because it was chosen as the card of the month
over at Crafter's Companion.
I used another new technique for this card which was to use tissue paper glued
to the card for added texture and I do love anything to do with the sea.
Denims and Faux Leather Belt
This card used another new to me technique which had just become very popular
to do which was to make faux leather with card softened with glycerin, and also the
different shape to the card which is something I rarely do.
Another male card and I was pleased with the way it turned out as I made the
chessboard from scratch and the perspective worked better than I expected.
I have to say this is something that I probably won't do again as it took a very
long time to mask off and colour all the squares.
On the Beach
This is my sixth choice but I think it is my most successful Gelli Plate background
to date, so I hope I am forgiven for including this too. Gelli Plate printing is very
random and I was extremely lucky with the way the colours merged together, and yes,
it's another seaside card!
Most of these are masculine makes and I do have lots of pretty feminine cards too, but I chose these because they were the most challenging but ultimately the most satisfying makes of 2014, and in the main the ones that got the most comments at the time. I really do appreciate everyone that takes the time to stop and look.
I notice that I have a new follower who goes by the name of Grapevine but I do not have any other details. If you let me have some more information I will give you a proper introduction.
Thank you for dropping by.
