Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

I Saw Three Ships..........

Now here's a challenge and a half for me. It's Meljens challenge 57 which is to create a business size card which i assume is the American equivalent to our DL size. I very rarely stray from my safe square cards but i thought I'd have a go.
I used Meljens "sail away" image which i printed out three times and added the caption underneath. The paper is one of loads which i won from The Card Grotto blog a couple of weeks ago. They were loose sheets so i can't tell you who it's by. I drew over the swirls with a Sakura clear glaze pen and added lots of stickles to the water.The card measures 10cm x 21cm.
Here's a close up for your inspection, lol.

  5. Hi Di

    A great finished look to this one. DL size don't seem to make much of appearance anymore do they? But of course they will one day when fashion has gone full circle.

    Great idea to use three of the same image to fill the space .. .. and I love your lovely blue sky. I hope that is what we are going to have today.

    Love Jules xx
