Guest Designer at the Lily Pad !!

 I am thrilled to be a guest designer at The Lily Pad blog today, I was asked by Deborah to make three cards to showcase and here are the three I came up with. 
The first one is a CAS card, just using the Blossom art flowers from Hero Arts plus some Basic Grey PP.

The second is a little more intricate, the background is emboss resist (One of my favourite techniques) using the Classic Fabric stamp with Scattered Straw and Victorian Velvet distress inks.  The flowers are again from the Blossom Art set and are paper pieced.  I have coloured some gems with a black copic marker and applied loads to the flower centers.  The second panel is from the Dictionary Greetings set and is also made using the emboss resist technique.








































The last card is using a digital image from the  Heather Ellis Pure Innocence collection and is coloured with copic markers.  I have added glossy accents to the wellingtons and then just backed it with some BasicGrey paper.


I had fun making these cards so thank you Deborah and Vicky for letting me join the team for a day.
