I know - you thought I'd left the country! I've taken a blog break but its a new year and I'm going to try to kick start my posting once again with a bit of SPARKLE.
I'm not one for layers and embellishments on cards but I saw THIS post on the Wplus9 blog and really fancied trying a bit of watercolouring gems. Not real watercolouring of course but using Distress Inks - there are loads of tutorials and videos using this technique around at the moment and Dawn at Wplus9 has a few on the blog. AND I've also been drawn into the sequin craze too - something I would not have imagined just a few weeks ago - but they do look so pretty when you see them in bulk don't they. I bought three little packets and the Sparkle & Shine stamp set and die at Make the Day Special.
Found a use for those cute little Bonne Maman jars I've been hoarding too! :)
