Two cards to share!

Hi everyone, here are two cards I had on display at the Penrith Papercraft Festival a few weeks ago. I created them using wonderful products from my fabulous and generous sponsors - ScrapMatts, Flourish with a Bling, Whimsy Farm Twine and Manor House Creations. This first card I roughly painted a ScrapMatts ornate frame #3 with white acrylic paint to give a distress look then I inked the 'Memories' word from Assorted words #10 pack with Distress Ink frayed burlap, layered it on Manor House Creations - Scrapcake Sweet Childhood papers then added Jubilee coronation cream and Winter Song Ice crystal flowers in the bottom left-hand corner. I used Bella twine for the rope on the kite then added Flourish with a Bling tiny pearls along the scalloped border at the bottom and to the kite!
This card I simply ink the lighthouse from the ScrapMatts Nautical Designs #1 pack and the word 'Inspire' from the Assorted Words #10 pack with VersaMagic Aegean blue ink, placed them on My Minds Eye 6x6 papers along with one of my favourite products from Flourish with a Bling a Jasmine fluffy flourish white as it looks cool with the lighthouise and has a soft sparkly effect on it. I tied Jemima twine around the bottom to add colour then added a bow of green seam binding and a charm from my stash. Now which of my brothers am I going to give this too?? Hmmmmm? Nah I might just keep it LOL
Well I hope you like them, I will be back in the next couple of days to share the cards I was teaching!! Cheers and Happy stamping, Jane
