Two note cards

 Hello visitors , welcome to my blog post . I hope that you and yours are well or if you have been unwell, then  I hope that you are on the improving list .

Today I have 2 cards to share . They are really  simple , quite plain actually . I began both with a SU basic thick white card base with a smaller piece of same thick white  card .

The first card has a sentiment "just a note" from Everyday Messages Stamp set  , while the image is  an old favorite  from Penny Black , called Fragrant Letter  .      The lovely wooden heart  embellishment was a gift from a swap card friend , Karen Chuck .

 I colored flowers  with yellow shades of  Copic  pens  .The letter itself was smooched with water color pencil .  I rubbed the pencil onto a stamp block and added a couple of drops of water then with a wide brush head I picked up the color and smooched the edges of the letter. 

My second share 



                           The  fruit image and the sentiment are  from  a freebie in a magazine along with a matching die. I have colored the pears  with a couple of shades of green Copic pens . I stamped one image direct to the layering  card , the other I stamped on scrap , colored and diecut adding that with foam dots .For this note card I have added a bit of bling to corners .

 I did enjoy creating these two ..I consider this style to be my favorite to make. So I am hoping that you liked  them too .

                                        Till next time .

               Catch you again soon , Cheers for now, Shirley-Anne.
