Here's a coule of my cards using Amy Butler floral fabrics. These were very simple to make and good fun. The Green Bead on the left card is truly gorgeous and felt it worked well with the fabric.

This is a painting of mine that I produced manyyears ago and sold 2 years ago at the Pittenweem Arts Festival, in Fife! Watercolour painting is a medim I majored in until I discovered Oils. Looking back at this Lily watercolour painting I fancy getting back into it and bringing the technique into my cardmaking.
This is just an example of my painting style.

This is one of my two cards that has been published in the Marh Crafts Beautiful Issue. I was asked to send in a pic. to Sarah Capel, which was a huge and delightful surprise! I have used Amy Butler floral fabric here and punched out a flower shape of Anna Griffin scrapbooking paper and attahced this to a piece of gold tracing paper with stick foam pads to raise the effect. I then stitched on 4x pearlescent flower sequins to the corners of the gold paper an again, attached to the card with sticky foam pads! I was very pleased with my end result that I decided to make another card using the same fabric and created a slightly similar card but the design itself was on a smaller scale. After creating these two cards I could see a set of cards enveloping so, I am now swithering to create my own sets of cards, just to be a bit different! Hope you like this card and soon I'll have more to show now that Tassie and Louise Brigden have helped with my Image query, thanx ladies! **
