Here are the cards that they demonstrated with;
The two above are from Janet
These are Joanna's 2 demo cards
Now, take a deep breath & sit back to look at the work of the ladies;
Annette, wow, you have come up with 2 very different styles
Carolyn's rainbows are softer in colour.Works well with the village scene. I think I still have that stamp. I have always loved using it for Christmas.
I like how Christine has that light spot in the centre - very effective
Dot also has that light spot in the top one. Three very different skies here.
I love the reflection in Elizabeth's top photo - its a step further on from the central light spot finish.
Very colourful second one.
I like in Helen's how the colours of sky seem to reflect on the snow ground.
The highlight on the building also shows it off well.
Lin has given us a very bright sky - with the tree looking very dramatic against it.
A lighter delicate sky from Liz. Very effective too.
Rita has given us 3 different skies.
Sue has produced 2 different skies - I think I prefer the top one, & there is that village scene again.
After looking at the photos again I notice that quite a few of you used the tape frame around your work, that Joanna uses. It certainly gives a really nice finish to the image.
They are brilliant - well done ladies.
Well I haven't done any crafting at all over these last days - I just cannot concentrate long enough - which is not good as I should be making my brother a birthday card. May have to look in my box & see if I have something suitable. It also at the moment makes me take twice as long to write the blog.
I did think whilst I was more or less just sat here, that it would be a good idea to press on with the cross stitch sampler for Gareth & Elayne. But because I kept coughing it wasn't a good idea. Talking of which - only 2 weeks to the wedding now - exciting!!! Where has that time gone - must rid myself of this cough.
Have a lovely weekend everyone. "Talk" soon. 'Bye for now.
