Lots and lots of layers....and not the woolly jumper kind! Although it is cold enough here to be wearing lots of layers of jumpers - I'm talking about my cards!
I spent a big part of the weekend making cards and using some of that patterned paper I'm so fond of buying! Here's one of the cards I made...
Here's a close up of all the layers I'm talking about..
Six layers! Told you I liked my layers!!! lol
The design is from a soon to be released set on TangledThreadsOnline.com. It's a set of six crossword type designs. I thought they would be great for Mother's Day, but they would also do for Mum's birthdays etc as they don't specifically mention Mother's Day. Once Valentine's day is over I will be adding these designs to the website.
I finished my little Margaret Sherry kittie into a card, but can't show you it just yet as the person it's for just might be popping on here and having a nosey - can't spoil the surprise! Once they have received the card I will post a picture for you to see....I have to say, that I LOVE the way it turned out!
As for the progress of the Geisha, I have to report that, sadly, I'm not loving working on this one at all. I'm not sure if it's the colours or the fact that it's quite 'blocky', whereas the Mighty Samurai was all bended colours and such smooth transitions that you couldn't see where one stopped and the next started. I'm hoping that the more I work on her, the more she'll grow on me!
Until next time...happy stitching!
