WOYWW - #111 - Making End of Year Cards

Well here we are again, it's that time of year, that is end of the school year, and time for thank yous... Both my grandsons have had a GREAT year, and so I decide to make thank you cards for their teachers... I have recycled some of my recent tags, and made them into cards. The fourth one is mostly new and is what is on my desk this week. I also want to enter this one into Hels' challenge at Sunday Stamper ( building a flower embellishment)

 So here is my desk as it is this week, with the beginnings of the fourth card. I so enjoyed working with the dress form last week, that I decided to go with it again this time, but to embellish it differently. I stamped with TH papillon text stamp and embossed in clear ep, after painting with pool and denim acrylic dabbers. You will see some rub 'n buff, which I smooched over the texture... I LOVE this stuff and the great effects you can get with it...

 Here is the boddice smooched with the gold and ancient gold rub 'n buff,  isn't it pretty??  I used some of my lovely lace wrapped round the form as a skirt. I then sprayed it with perfect pearls ancient gold mist, to age it.. A single flower was cut to decorate the rosette, which was later cut down to make it even smaller - I wish TH would make one this tiny size!!!

 This is my flower, built up from Ten Seconds metal and TH paper stack. The dies used were PaperArtsy and TH tattered florals.

So below is the finished card, for Matthew's classroom assistant, whom he says is his girlfriend!!! - well he is only 5 years old!!!

 To follow are the other three cards, for Jaden's teacher and classroom assistant, and Matthew's teacher - he chose  the creamy brown one, because he says she likes those colours!! The pink and purple ones are for Jayden's staff...



I do hope they like them... I don't think there is anything not to like!!! We are going to put a voucher into each one, so that should be a nice present, I think... So that's it for another week.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will leave me a comment, cos I LOVE hearing from you...
Thanks for looking and have a great week
Love and Light
