A couple of quick cards

Been far too busy to play much for ages but I did quickly make these two cards the night before I went to my local Stamp Club last week for two of our ladies who have birthdays this month.

This one was inspired by an article by Hels Sheridan in December's Craft Stamper but I only have one colour of Colourwash Spray so I used Glimmermists instead. The main image is a stamp produced by The Stampsmith called 'Maud'. The background stamps are by Stampers Anonymous, Magenta and Paper Artsy.

The other card was made by stitching the layers together on my sewing machine. The glimmermist sprayed layer is cotton blind material (an old offcut, great to stamp on too!) on which I used a flourish mask and then overstamped lightly with a Crafty Individuals flower background stamp which gives it a slightly 'batik' look.

The butterfly lady is also by Crafty Individuals and, funnily enough, I just bought it from Hels Sheridan last week so these two cards are loosely linked!
The leaf was cut from a piece of evening dress fabric I had kept after shortening it years ago.......I knew it would come in handy ONE day!!!
