Crafty Cardmakers

Crafty Cardmakers are having a design team call, so I thought I'd take the plunge and have a go!
The first card is on the theme of new beginnings.

The next 3 cards are a bit of a mixed bag. The first one is a card I have made for my nephew. It's a Penny Black stamp and I love colouring with promarkers, so I really enjoyed making this one.

The next one is a wall hanging using a picture of my Grandmother. The picture frame is made from card which has been embossed in gold and stamped into. The background has been stamped and edged with german scrap. I finished it off with some lace, flowers and pearls. This is my favourite recent make - but it might be for sentimental reasons! 

My third selection has also appeared in a previous post and reflects the style of the majority of my stamps. The background was embossed with cogs and clocks and coloured with alcohol inks. I added clock cogs which were fixed with screw brads. It was finished with some Tim Holtz stamps and mounted on kraft card.

 So that's my four entries, all different, but I like to try something new!
