Colourful Edge Cards

I hope that visitors in the UK have remembered to turn the clocks back, giving us an hour of crafting daylight during the winter months. I'm already starting to think about where my spring bulbs will pop up as I can't remember where I've planted them.
Two cards from me today showing the Exquisite Edges and Owl Edges.
I felt the first was the easier as I took inspiration from the three colours of the Distress Ink background. The palms of the stamp were coloured with red pens. The Peacock was stamped onto a spare piece of the background. I used Versamark and Black WOW powder for both.

The bulrushes from Owl Edges reminded me of a photograph my husband had taken while out walking near where we live across the pond. There was a dragonfly in the photograph and I substituted it for a fairy.
Many thanks for visiting

Exquisite, Elegant Edges

Good morning.
I was lucky to see the Owl and Exquisite Edges in the early stages of production and I must say Lesley has done a marvellous job of putting them together. They are going to feature regularly in my cards.
For both cards I chose to stamp the Exquisite Edges with Versafine and embossed with black powder as I wanted them to stand out from the Brusho backgrounds. I had made a few A4 backgrounds so had ample for stamping the Sunny Sunflowers and Waterlily Mandala. For the first card I added a little colour with pens to edge.

There are many more projects from the girls to come with lots of inspiration. Many thanks for visiting and don't forget to leave a comment for the chance to win a £15.00 gift voucher from Lesley.
