Video : It’s time for ‘Pretty’!

Started out with a totally different idea and ended up with this pretty little number…  does that ever happen to you?  Not sure if you had noticed but I’m just a little addicted to gold right now and working my way through the WOW powder.  And I really enjoyed colouring this beautiful Penny Black image, the details are already there all I had to do was follow the ‘no’ lines lol.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

  1. Teresa, that card is not just pretty, its drop dead gorgeous!!! I have recently gotten some of these penny black stamps and was having trouble making them stamp and look right. this solves my problem! thank you so much!

  2. You’ve made this look much more simple than it could be, Therese! Gorgeous in every way … if I didn’t know better, I’d say one of our darling little Orchard Orioles dropped by your garden!

  3. Therese, this card is just brilliant, you make it all look so simple. I swear I would go buy those pencils tomorrow if I thought I could use them that way. And the stamp, wow. Your self made banner is so clever just wish they bought out the mum version as well. You are so talented.

    1. I would have loved it to say Mum but I’m just going with the Mom version (my MIL was married to an American and my hubby and his brother’s were all born in the US) so it’ll work for me.
      Hope you are having a great weekend. I just spent card making day getting all my tax stuff together… not so nice, but at least I did get to make one card, Yay! Hugs Therese
