More blog candy !!

I can't believe that I'm posting twice in one day but you know how it is following links from here to there.
I followed a link and found myself here at Fi's cards and crafts
She is celebrating a birthday soon and is offering this surprise candy.

Go and see what a wonderful blog she has.

Hi everyone,

Long time no see - yes, I know.
Hopefully I'll me able to post more often.
( I need to download my camera to access the pictures of more work pieces).
In the mean time, here's one of my more recent parchment painting efforts.

This is the wren that we painted last week.
It's painted with tinta as a base layer, then pintura on subsequent layers.

I hope you like it.
One day I'll get around to finishing it into a card.

Have fun,

Getting the new layout sorted ?

Hi everyone,

I'm still trying to get the hang of this blogging lark.
Several of the pictures that I've scanned are coming up way too bright and the white areas seem to be bleached out.
I'll upload them as they are, but will keep trying to tone them down and re-post later.
but for now two more teddy vellum cards.a simple apperture and a more muted 'cute' one

Back from Holland, playing with the fairies, but today I'm off on a teddy bear's picnic.

Here's the first of the bear vellum cards.
Soft colours (but the glossy card has caught the light a bit too much.) With 3D flowers.

More tomorrow !

Simple Peel-off and multi grid card

This is a little card that I did over christmas using the Pergamano Multi grid No12, a white butterfly peel-off and some little flowers and gems. The butterfly is embossed and coloured from the back with PCE.

WOW me first blog entry !!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my first tip-toeing into the world of blogging.

My name is Sue Hastwell and I run several Parchment classes each week from my little unit within Curborough Craft Centre, Lichfield, Staffordshire. England.

I hope over the coming days and weeks to be able to show you some of the things we do.
This card was one of the projects that we did just before the christmas break.
