who said
"Can you use for background net for ivy, or for a birdcage, or a big bow for a present on a Christmas card :)"
 A little spider web:)
And another,I thought yesterday evening,a little fence for sheeps:)

who said
"Seeing the tape in sliver I would be tempted to use it on Christmas cards instead of ribbon on some."

who said
 "l had already seen your tutorial which was brilliant a great net for your card just amazing what can be made with it l think you could just use it for just about anything it's one of those items that will come in handy anywhere and any time"

Bella With Balloons Wild Rose Studio DT Creation and Tutorial

Good evening to you all in the land of blog

On Saturday I was rained in, I had an image that I had previously coloured for a tutorial for my card that I made for the class at Grimsby Crafts, so I decided to make it up into a card.  Now I had spent a whole week playing with the image, that is that I tried a new technique for creating clouds, and I love the way it turned out, although it is not an instant thing it took a few days of work, but think it was so well worth it.  See below I have created another tutorial to show you how I created the sky.


So here is what I created

I made a birthday card and Sam yes it is PINK!!!! a gorgeous pink at that :)
 The Recipe is
Base Card - a 12" by 6 3/4" fully punched around the page and folded in a half and the edges air brushed in RV06
Base colour and compliment a pale blue card
Papers - Wild Rose Studio from the Floral Fantasy Pack
The Wild Rose Studio sentiment from the Little Labels  set,  is sat on a spellbinder die.
The Wild Rose Studio Image - Bella with Balloons
MS Punch around the Page - Little Daisy's
Gems are from my candy win from Marianne, thank you hun
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts ivory roses and other bits air brushed in RV06 and stickles added.

Here is a close up of the flowers


Here is a close up of the image coloured in copics

The step by step colouring video from the class is available in two parts

I of course was forced to play all weekend in my Beach Hut, you see the weather was just terrible, like a swimming pool outside the door!!! just no idea where our sun has gone to, but I have a feeling some people are maybe being a little selfish with it and not sharing (think you know who you are :) .........................................
