Yes, I am back again!!

At last I have taken some pictures of some of the things I have been doing over the last week or so. Actually, the first is a picture frame I did ages ago after I came back from a few days in Melbourne. I got the wooden frame at IKEA. I covered the frame with TH tissue tape (what an amazing product), distressed it slightly with vintage photo distress ink to give it a little more depth of colour then coated it with mod podge to seal the tissue tape.
The flowers were made from music paper cut with the tattered florals die (again TH) and shaped into paper roses. I sprayed them with shimmer mist - red and gold, then layered them onto little branches punched from green card and sprayed with gold mist. The flourishes are cut with the TH flourishes die and layered onto the bottom of the frame along with sitcky pearls.

I had to make some Easter cards for the Card Making World Monthly Challenge.

The first one was done mainly using the Cricut. I used Make the Cut to do the egg shape, the shadow and the lattice topper. The letters were welded then cut and a shadow made as well.

 The corners were cut with a Martha Stewart Photo corner punch and the centre strip was cut using a Fiskars scalloped edge punch.

The background paper is from my stash!

 The second Easter card has a digital image from Tilly - Just Jenny with Easter egg and coloured using my copics. The background speckle stamp was one designed by Sue Law for a shop in the UK and I am loving it a lot! Thanks Zoe for sending it to me!!
 The background paper is by Kaiser Craft and the edge shape was cut using a TH edge die. I topped it with a green ribbon. The sentiment and the card were edged with rusty hinge distress ink.

Lovely to see you Janet, guess things are returning to a new Normal now as you all get on with it after the last big quake.

Some beautiful work here, love the wax paper technique never had much success with it but you certainly have! Frame is delightful, you have shared some lovely work with us here. XOXO Zoe
