Blog Virgin

Can't believe I've finally got a blog! When it comes to computers I'm dreadful, so I didn't think I would be able to set one up, however it wasn't too bad after all. (although I did have some technical assistance, Thanks Dad.) Thanks also go to Chris for her encouragement.

The card I'm posting was my entry in the current Colour Create Challenge. It's the first time I've ever entered a challenge. I've already been told by a member of my family that the picture is 'rubbish' and will try to improve, but David Bailey I ain't. The image was stamped with a Kadoodle 'Stepping Stones' stamp ( I cut the stepping stone off) and coloured with watercolour pencils. She was matted onto a black circle cut with nesties and embossed with CB folder. (if you double click on image you can just see the embossing) I punched some leaves with the same black and green card and inked the green ones. The sentiment is a Papermania stamp that was a freebie with a magazine, finally I added the black dotty ribbon.
Would love to read any comments you may have. Thanks for looking

  4. well done Fiona from the rest of The Craft Barn team, lovely card for your first post. By the way I think I can guess that Isa is referring to my photography when she talks of rubbish pictures. Nothing wrong with yours from what I can see!

  6. Hi Fiona!!!!
    It's so lovely to finally "meet" you! Huge congrats on getting your blog up and running, you know you'll never get any housework done now lol.
    It's so lovely to see one of your creations, it is really gorgeous. What a cute little image and I love the design of the card as well.
    And your photo looks fine...you know I take as much time taking my photos as I do card making to try and get it right..I think I have improved over the months I've been blogging but it does take time.
    I can't wait to see more of your lovely work Fiona,
    Love Sarita xx
