Crazy Amigos want to see Embossing folders, too, so here’s one I just finished.

I made this one yesterday (another folder and coloured with Neopaque) but I know it needs grounding on another colour after the pale pink.  I’ve tried a few colours but the only one I like is a pale aqua, yet there still seems to be something missing?  Any suggestions?  I’m wondering if it needs another bit of black, too…? Or maybe black is all it needs?  Might try that next…

More journal pages….

These are only a month late but I only have two more pages to do before this mingle is finished – shame, it’s been fun.

Wow - two beautiful styles Cath - Fantastic cards, so bright and vibrant in their colour. And I adore the subtle hues in your journal pages. You're so freakin' versatile lol Pxxx

Helen said...

The cards are beautiful (maybe black as you say for the second one - love that stamp!!) The journal pages are also amazing.

Paula Whittaker said...

Think you're right when you say it needs to be placed on black card. Great work, especially the journal pages.

All gorgeous and I agree the top one does need a bit of something else to balance it out, I'm not sure what though and wouldn't want to suggest anything just in case. I think you're probably best to have a play around and see what you come up with.

Beautiful work, love the colours of the sky xx

Cath Wilson said...

Sorry, Sam but I quite like the top one - if you enlarge it, you can see that it's dry embossed and stamped on the right, balancing it - well, I think so anyway, lol - IMHO!

So different, but all beautiful.

I love them all. The top one is my favourite with those gorgeous colours, and the second looks fine as it is, but maybe a hand drawn border around that edge of pink card, or some pierced holes at the corners? Your snowy scenes are exquisite. You have captured the light quality perfectly

Sue said...

I like them all is well, and I certainly don't feel the top card needs anything added. It is absolutely beautiful.
Your second card, is very pretty, perhaps the pink card is a little too
pale for the black border, I actually like the subtle effect, beautiful work.
