…with a bit of orange/ochre

Two cards made with the same image and same backgrounds (Brilliance reinkers) but different coloured card bases – amazing what a difference a colour can make’


These are scraplings, made from card scraps.  Shame you can’t see that lovely Pearlescent Brilliance ink.


This one’s Stazon inks


This week’s Ebay auctions are now coming to a close, so I’ll be uploading more this week.  Thank you for all the interest.

Have a lovely week.

The lilac & lime cards are gorgeous. Love the serene , natural feel of them. And I lurve the Poppy seed heads card. Black silhouettes on an intense saturation of colour always looks stunning, esp. in your creative hands. Pxx

My favourite is the intense pink/orange one. There's something very special about the poppy seed head shape isnt there? Lovely work.

Fab cards Cath. Yeah it is amazing what a difference the base colour is, fun to play and see what happens though!!

Love the stazon one but I think that's more because of the colours!!

Fantastic cards, as I know the Brilliance inkpads I can imagine how the backgrounds look like.

These are stunning Cath. Thanks for the comments on my blog. I've been so busy these last few months with family stuff. I'm the only one who doesn't work so I'm the taxi! Hopefully things are going to ease off for me now and I can start making more stuff. xx

I love that muted appearance you achieved on the first two, as though you used Gesso on the background.
Gorgeous cards Cath.
