Bright and Dark

Hello fellow crafty people :-) Hope you are all well and looking after yourselves in this awful windy weather?! 

Yesterday was a longgggg day and even though I was so tired I looked dead on my feet, I couldn't sleep! 
At 12:30am I found myself making a card :-) 

I had purchased some kanban topper sheets in a shop here for 50p each so thought I would use one of them. 

I diecut the card and the backing shapes and distressed the edges of some of them. I highlighted areas with glossy accents and then mica/ink sprayed the flowers to match the bow. 

I am really pleased with how this card turned out....







Considering I didn't sleep that well, I was up early and making another card lol 
Because I was tired and felt slightly grumpy, I made a card that showed my mood lol 

I used a Gorjuss topper and tag, and some shimmer embossed card that I found in my stash :-) 

I used eyelets and twine and some diecuts. 

I used glossy accents again to highlight some of the areas of the tag. 

This is very different to the first card, however I love it just as much...




Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leave lovely comments. 

Hugs Lisa xxxxx
