The Birds of Happiness

When I saw these gorgeous paper serviettes in the shop I just had to buy a packet as I knew they would make lovely cards. I did a blue colour-wash for the background and added some liquid pearls to the flowers and finished the card off with a sparkly mauve dragonfly.

Paper Patchwork Card

I did a soft blue colour wash background for this card. Then I punched out 12 paper serviette squares to form my patchwork design. The finishing touches were some glitter glue around the edge and a stencilled Happy Birthday.

Cupcakes and Delicious Treats Card

A pretty paper serviette was the starting point for this card. Soft pink lace, bling for the cakes and a stencilled Happy Birthday were the finishing touches. Most of my cards are for sale in my Etsy shop

Matchbox Art....Dolly in the Bed

I had a lot of fun covering another empty matchbox. I used a page from an old children's book. For the pillow, sheets and bedcover, I used a pretty paper serviette, glued on to some light foam to give it a bit of strength and shape. I couldn't resist putting the dolly on a matchstick!!

Another Covered Tea Light Candle Holder

 This time I tried covering the glass with a pretty floral serviette and it looks really lovely with the candlelight shining through. I used Mod Podge to affix the serviette to the glass.

I didn't Mod Podge the outside as I like the texture of the serviette....a bit like linen. Just be careful with your join as that will show through once you light your candle.
