I was so pleased with my crochet on cardstock experiment, that I decided to do it again. This is a favourite colour, not one I can wear as I'm too pale but I find blue a relaxing colour to crochet with and blue flowers are always special. Somehow butterflies made it on to this card too.
I love mixing different cardmaking techniques such as paper embroidery, with 3D decoupage or parchment craft. Today I decided to crochet a scalloped circle as a background for my flowers instead of using a diecut doily or suchlike. I'm pleased with the result.
Two cards made with a Crafty Individuals stamp. Both have backgrounds created with tapestry stamps and distress inks. The top one features large cracks made with UTEE and the bottom one is layered on a background coated with distress rock candy crackle paint.
I have joined the thousands out there who have been inspired by Lucy of Attic24 fame. Today's Work In Progress (and will be for many weeks to come, lol,) is my mahoosive granny stripe sofa blanket. It is over 3 metres wide and is my last half hour in bed project. I'm in no rush to complete, it is a very simple pattern and I'm going for the more minimalist 3 colour variation rather than a rainbow. 7 stripes so far.
My three year old proclaimed, as she entered the craft room to see me making a parchment butterfly, to add to the front of this Tri shutter card. lol
I guess I do make rather a lot of them, but you can never have too many butterflies !
