Life's a bowl of cherries

Good evening dear blog people.

Hope you are all well and the weather is good.

For tonight's card I have tried something a bit different:

Firstly I made the backing paper using Whisper watercolour pens and SU Tart and Tangy stamps. Then I stamped the bowl of cherries using SU Cherish Friendship set and coloured with the Whisper pens. l then added my favourite Glossy Accents. The Tilda is Baking Tilda with wooden spoon also coloured with  the Whisper pens. Lastly the sentiment is Hero Arts What's Cooking. Phew what a long list!

The cherry bowl reminds me of a past hobby of mine - salt dough. I used to love the moulding process it was very therapeutic! Here's one of my cherry basket's:

I think this is why I love Glossy Accents so much, it reminds me of the varnish effect.
I used to sell at craft fayre's and one day would love to take it up again but a craft room is needed as it takes up a lot of room and the 'putting everything away' is not fun!
Anyway I think that's enough babbling or else you might nod off!
Ta ta for now.

  3. Beautiful card, the glossy accents makes the cherries look good enough to eat! Also your salt dough creation is stunningly beautiful and something I'd buy from a craft fair, you must have and need patience for creating such a detailed piece. Hugs Bev x
