An Art-card

I'm back after a week and this time I've again been inspired by Cardpatterns sketch 107! I am very happy today because I loved making this card , every bit of it because I got to combine my two big passions..card-making and art!!I love painting with soft pastels..I love how you can blend them with your fingers and how the picture looks almost like an oil painting without the effort of an oil painting!I made the painting of a bunch of tulips (copied from a book on pastel paintings) on pastel paper and made the frame with icecream sticks.I used papers and black twine sent to me by dearest Asha..did a bit of distressing with white paint around the edges..and used a brad to hang the painting!Hope you like the card ....have a great day!

Card Patterns sketch 106

Hi dearies!!
Hope you are all doing well..
Here's a card I made yesterday for card patterns sketch 106. I started out with something in mind and ended up with something quite different!It may be because I've been so out of touch for some time now :-(My  mojo is slowly returning  and I seriously hope to make more cards regularly..Here are the pics of the awesome candy I won from Asha..I squealed in delight when the huge box was delivered to me!Thanks so much Asha!
