52CC - week 19

Nat dipped into the prompt jar for week 19 and this is what she came out with: navy, vellum and stitching.  I didn't manage to use all three, but hey the prompt is just a starting point.... isn't it?? LOL.

The Christmas card has a landscape image, which I had previously stamped (not sure of brand) and then had put in the 'come-in-useful-one-day' drawer.  I coloured it with Kuretake pens and matted it onto some background paper on a navy card blank.  The sentiment is die-cut .... Britannia dies, I think.  Then I added some pearls.  I wasn't sure about colouring this image and will probably do it slightly differently next time, but it's not too bad :-)

The get well card is also on a navy blank and has faux stitching!  The flower stamp is from Hero Arts, coloured with Kuretakes again, the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  I have to confess, one of the flowers is there to cover a stray splodge of ink and the other two are there to balance the first one!!


  1. 2 lovely navy cards, I really like the get well soon card with the flowers, very pretty.

  2. wow they are both gorgeous cards!

  3. Both lovely cards! You are not supposed to confess to the cover up's though, that defeats the point!
