Cards for March 2014: Doodled Flowers and Paisley Shapes

A funny thing happened this weekend, I found a pocket of time and made some cards.  Little Lady went to both thee neighbours house and invited them around (one is 12 and the other 18) to play Monopoly.  So whilst they argued, fought, sulked ("I'm not playing!", "hey what about me, I am playing!") and cheated like crazy.  I got some time to play with my papers, gems and ribbon.

Of course there is not much chance of Darling taking a nap at the same time, so I had to let her explore my materials too.  Until the Monopoly game caught her attention and she ran away with a pile of money.

The printed papers I used were all from American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 12x12 book of papers (you can see some of the amazing papers in this book here).  I like the hand-drawn feel of the designs and that the sketched flowers and paisley shapes remind me of henna designs.  I also liked the watercolour-like washes of colour.

The embellishment I used at the top of the card above was a bindi:

I'm pretty sure the sparkly embellishment on the card below was a body tattoo.

Above is a chipboard embellishment, below is a sticker from a nearly finished pack I've had for ages.

It was lovely being able to get creative again.  I haven't even started on the papers in this pack, so looking forward to trying some more.  I actually sat down to make some baby cards, because I know I will need some, so will have a go at some of those too insh'Allah.
