|It looks really pink but live, it's a dark burgundy?!|
Last night I decoupaged a couple of cards to add to my Christmas supply to sell for charity. The decoupage sheet was £1.65 from a local shop. I quite like the non-traditional colours, after all my bleaching efforts on red and green.
Sorry about poor quality of pics - I can't get them right this time of the year - with or without the flash. They are actually a nice shade of pinky-beige (there's probably a better name than that!) and not the wishy-washy nothing-ey colour they look here.
I knocked up several cards for my charity stall last night, too. I had been finding it very time consuming to make cards from used ones. I've now discovered that if I sort them into colours, and work on one colour at a time, I only need a few coordinating papers etc out, rather than the chaos I had been working in!
Just noticed the strange angle I was holding the camera at - makes it look like the flower is jumping out at you - sorry about that!
This one was a real cheat - all I did was mount the pic on the card - but he was too cute to resist! I can't decide whether to put something in the bottom right corner, or leave well alone.
Anyway, time to think about something other than cards - my husband is very patient but there ARE limits!
