I have no excuse for not posting for so long, except that we have been travelling in Europe in our motorhome.
I didn't do much crafting but here a few things I did to idle away some time
this card was a trial in combining tatting and painting on a card ......the card was going to be white but I wasn't happy with the bottom part so I added a piece of black, painted it and voila... a monochrome card
I really enjoy painting on black card as the colours seem to pop
iT is possible to buy special paint for painting on card but I find DecoArt Americana works really well so don't feel a need to buy more paints
I also made a few tatted items.......this little tattlet
and a pair of big earrings (I used the Stumpy bookmark pattern by Kersti Anear)
