Joanna Sheen Fest continues, with this lovely image again from the decoupage papers Kate Greenaway III. I have used Joanna Sheen paisley backing paper and most of the images from the decoupage sheet. Although you can't see with my rotten photography is the depth of the image. It is all put together on dark blue stardream card, giving it a lovely rich feel. This may well be the card I give my friend for her 60th birthday this evening. On the other hand..................er um!!!

Surprise! You've got it! I just can't leave these lovely decoupage images from Joanna Sheen Ltd alone, Yes I know I don't 'do' decoupage and I know I get impatient with it, but these Kate Greenway pictures are just enchanting here I have a card embossed with butterflies (source forgotten) and I have simply used the elements on the decoupage sheet.
Yes! I am very nosey, so I would be the lady on the left of the picture!!
Another Wedding card, this time its with the Cute Companions stamps and cdrom. I love these little cuties designed by the extremely talented Jayne Nestorenko. The backing paper and the background for these little mice are from the cd. The mice are coloured with Lyra Water Colour crayons and a koi waterbrush. I have then just added some satin ribbon with a picot edge just to make a real celebratory card.

This card is made again for one of those sad occasions. It is an image from Kate Greenaway III by Joanna Sheen Ltd. It uses cotton lace, plain burgandy card stock, gold stardream card and paisley backing paper all from Joanna Sheen Ltd..........Do you detect a theme here? It is completed with 3 burgandy arum lilies tied with narrow ivory ribbon. Decoupage isn't normally my thing, but when the images are this lovely I just can't refuse (well it would be rude to wouldn't it?)
As you can see I still haven't worked out how to get rid of the date or put it right on my camera yet. that was always my hubbies job, just one of many I have to work out for myself now. I do hope that my dreadful photography doesn't spoil your enjoyment of my cards. I promise I will try harder.
