As I promised, here are a couple more Fun cards, using feminine images. These are the ones I really struggled to colour because of the glass… and no, I still haven’t looked up a tutorial on colouring glass but I really must do that!

For Fabulously Feminine at Stamping Sensations again, I made this one…the wine is a pale lemon (or cream) colour, but it’s hard to see.


This one was an attempt at Red wine…not quite as successful, I don’t think…. back to the wine words Winking smile


I must apologise for the quality of the scans – they’re both the same white card and there aren’t any specks on them – that’s from the scanner bed, which I’ve tried to clean, but obviously still has some stubborn marks on it. I’ll put that on my to do list for tomorrow!

This is a page from my journal for Art Journal Journey and Alison’s Geometrical shapes challenge.. I stamped a few of the girl and crown stamp, so this is the first one… I made another rough background on a piece of card, using Dylusions Spray inks, then added a touch of Salted Ocean Oxide at the base and stamped a border. Again, I used part of the words from the first set I got because it fitted with the page and with my mood! I wanted to use it as a tip-in, so instead of using one of my book binding punches, I cut out the little rectangles/squares of card and stuck it into my 6x6 journal. I kept some of the cut outs and attached them to the bottom to pull the top and bottom bits together. I found one of my date stamps, so added that for fun.  I think this is an old one that’ has the date American style, with the month first, but I’ve used it the English way. I may go back and colour that honeycomb in black and white…I think it needs a bit more definition, lol.


Thank you for popping in – it’s lovely to ‘see’ you!

Back soon

J’adore tes cartes avec les verres de vin, tu utilise quoi pour colorier ? Je pense que pour le verre de vin rouge il faudrait faire plus foncer un coté peut être. Ou ca pourrait être du rosé :-)

bisous, Joanne

The cards are brilliant! You have colorured the wine perfect in my mind and I can't see any specks - and that as I nearly always see specks on anything on my big screen since it is full of specks from when I splatter colour ...lol!
I love the fun sentiments !
And what a wonderful page - your eye for colours always amazes me. How pretty the page looks and perfect balancend and this little extra sqares are fabulous! The quotes are pretty and perfect for the page! I am thrilled about this entry for Alison's theme at Art Journal Journey Cath! Thank you for taking part again!

Happy weekend teamie!
Big hugs, Susi

Wow, Cath. Those wine cards are a hoot. I laughed at the girls in the glasses. They were adorable.

I adore the girl and her crown. The sentiments were great, too. You color so perfectly, and I absolutely adore the geometric shapes you used. Thank you for once again joining us at Art Journal Journey.

I think you are being a little hard on yourself. The wine glasses are great and as good as anything I hae ever seen anyone do. I can see the white wine (touch of cream) and your red wine is perfectly fine too.
Love the journal page - there is so much to see, reminds me of a stamp image by one of my favourite artists for AAL & Create.
Hugs, Neet xx
