Daisy Daisy Sharpie Nails

May 26th 2013

It’s a sunny bank holiday so I felt inspired to do some happy nails covered in daises.

This time I used a matt white polish as the base. This was a lot easier to draw onto and the Sharpie ink dried faster on it too. For the black petals I used an ultra fine tip black Sharpie. The centers were done with a dot using a fine tip Sharpies. I then used a good quality clear varnish over the top to finish and add the shine back.

Oh and just for fun, here’s me in a hat showing off my nails. Experimenting with some photo editing software :)

Children’s Birthday Cards

Children's 2nd birthday card with giraffe

Children's 3rd birthday card

A couple of children’s birthday cards that I made recently. Both using paper from a set called ‘animal antics’. I used gel stamps for the lettering on the giraffe cars and a flower punch to embellish it a little.
For the 3rd birthday card I cut out the 3 with a scalpel and raise/emboss it.

1st Anniversary Card

April 28th 2013

Another card made for a first anniversary. I was a bridesmaid at the wedding so I pressed some petals from my bouquet and saved them to use in this card.

One difficulty in doing this was sticking the very delicate petals to the card. I used double sided tape for this. It worked reasonably well as it can’t bee seen through the petals however I was very close to tearing them. I tend to use double sided tape for my cards because it is less messy than glue and you dont have to wait for it to dry. Also some glues I have used in the past loose their stickiness and parts of the card fall off. I’ve found double sided tape is a lot more reliable. Also you can buy 3 for £1 in most bargain or pound shops.

The background for this card is Emma Bridgewater paper and I used gel stamps for the lettering.
