Last post!

Wall to wall blue skies and sun today, hopefully it will continue for the rest of the week. I have a birthday card to show you for a friend at Rock Choir so I have scheduled this to show this evening after she's received it :0)
I was on FB and saw a Sue Wilson video on the Creative Expressions page and the techniques inspired me to make this card which is a bit different from my usual style, come and see:

The back layer is stamped with versamark and embossed with white EB using a Jenny Mayes stamp the same as the topper. The teal layer I dry embossed with versamark on the EF and added WOW embossing glitter. The topper is a fleur de lys die and the stamped image was inked with markers and spritzed with water for a watercolour effect. The sentiment is from Aspects of Design and the bow and beads from my stash.
I just realised that I forgot to show you the card I made for Charlie's 2nd birthday which was Monday and he quite likes Thomas the Tank Engine so that's what I went for:

I found some colouring pages on the internet and printed them out and coloured with PM's. I decoupaged some of the layers and used glossy accents on the black areas. The background  was embossed with a cogs EF and inked and the letters die cut and inked. The sentiment label is a JustRite one and the sentiment a very old SeeDee one with Charlie's name added with my zyron digital runner.

I called this the Last Post as we are off to Portsmouth tomorrow to look after Charlie for the weekend so no more crafting till next week!
Have a good week :0)
