Lady Crawford



Good Morning from a rather foggy Fen, seems the weatherman got it right for once because this is exactly what was promised for the latter part of the week.

I would like to say welcome to my new followers, lovely to see you and I hope to pop along to say hello shortly. 

 

I have a couple of shares of the samples I made for this weeks Stamp Addicts Paper Clinic show on Create and Craft TV, this time using Lady Crawford, I just love her name it's so fitting.

On both the image is paper pieced onto a background with a little stamping and inking and on the second a couple of flowers and some feather which I think seem fitting for the era Lady Crawford comes from. The sentiment is from the same stamp sheet.

Hope you all have a good Thursday.

  1. These are lovely Brenda. I especially like the way the flowers stems on the top one have been made to look dimensional - clever stamping I'm guessing.

  5. Hi Brenda, both cards are superb. Amazing how the different shadings of stamp can alter the image so. The sun is particularly wonderful in the first piece. The 'grounding' in the second image a great effect. Beautiful artworks. Nicola x

  10. Love what you've done with this image Brenda. Love the paper piecing. I saw her on tv, she looks very regal.

    I'm hesitating to tell you that it's a fantastic day here in Aberdeenshire. Sunshine and blue skies but pretty cold. Frosty earlier on but fine now.

    Trying to get round to doing some work here!

    Take care,

  12. Couldn't see across the valley this morning - just fog through which the sun is slowly appearing. Love these - especially that second one & the feather really tops the whole design beautifully.
    Keep warm.
