Crafty Ann's Challenge # 32 - Ring in the New But Don't Ring Out The Old

My new here is Crafty Ann's Bluebell digi which I used to make my backing paper and my Derwent watercolour pencils. I had forgotten how nice it is to sit and colour and these pencils are much better quality than my old ones. I went over the colouring with a water brush. The revived skill is my alphabet stamps. I stamped over the bluebell images and coloured them before shaping the letters and covering them with glossy accents. It was a joy to make this card with thoughts of Sring, colouring as a child with my Dad and memories of walks in Bluebell Wood. Who would have thought making a card could do all that. The pleasures of our hobby.
Thank you for taking a look, all your comments are much appreciated.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous Jen. I love bluebells too and they always make me think of my Dad which is one of the reasons I drew them in the first place. I love the clean look to this beautifully coloured and designed card, thank you so much for joining us again.

  4. Beautiful card Jen and I am glad you enjoyed making it so much. The alphabet letters are brilliant - most unusual and attractive. Isn't it lovely when we get overtaken by happy thoughts when we are crafting?
