More Friends Forever!

Here are some more cards from the Forever Friends TSV. All of these cards have been made by the wonderful and extremely talented Sheila Halliwell. Enjoy!

Here Sheila has used decoupage from the Forever Friends Everyday Kit, and before fixing all the layers, she has inked the edges using a pink fluid chalk ink. She has also used chalks to emphasise the parcels on the embossed card blank, also included in the kit.

This card also features the embossed cards from the kit, and Sheila has again brought out the detailed embossing of this card by using chalks and the fine tip of a purple brush marker. The top of the card has been removed, purple cardstock added to the inside of the card. A frame has been created by punching out small daisies and layering them to the underside of the front of the card. Coloured image and border stickers have been added and finally doodling used to finish the card.

On this beautiful card Sheila has cut a circle from the front of an identical patterned card blank using scalloped edged scissors and layered it using 3D foam pads on top of another, adding for flowers as an embellishment (saving the card left over to use elsewhere of course!). The bear with the present from the Everyday kit has been stamped using black ink and coloured with Papermania watercolour markers. Then latte glittter flocking from the embellishment kit has been added to the bear using a fine tipped glue pen. This gives a gorgeous subtle sparkly finish! (I will try and get a close up shot for you so you can see how gorgeous the glitter flocking is!)

Sheila has used a patterned card blank for the base of this gorgeous card, and I just love the glitter cardstock from the everyday kit too! A cardstock sticker has been fixed to the centre of the card using 3D foam pads and brads have been added to the kit to finish the card off perfectly.

For this lovely card, Sheila has used clever matting and layering, using cardstock from the everyday kit to create a card with lots of interest. A decoupaged image of bear carrying gifts is the main focus of the card, with pattened paper in a positive and negative design bringing the card together. An outline sticker greeting has been added to the card, and ribbon and brads have been added to the card to finish.
Thanks for visiting - more cards coming soon!
Love, Clare x
