Blue Christmas...


I've finally found a few minutes to pop by and share this card...

For my card I used the NEW CAS(E) this Sketch! sketch seen HERE and below and I also used the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below.

This was a fun sketch and I knew I wanted to use my doilies as snowflakes again! I did use a little snowflake stamp which is from Label Love: Christmas along with the doilies as it was the perfect size!  I love the colour blue and the current ColourQ colours made my day & are perfect for the flurry of snowflakes on my card! 

I was disappointed today as there was no more snow falling here but I'm sure it won't be long before it's back! To cheer myself up I did a few more screen printed tote bags and as promised I took a couple of photos to share with you...

I screen print in the kitchen as I don't have access to water in the studio only outside in the garden and it's far too cold to be outside! We have quite a bit of worktop space & it's perfectly sized for printing small items like tote bags! 

This is the Gerbra flower from Pure Florals: Gerbera enlarged to fit on an A3 screen and I selected a yummy turquoise colour to print with for this bag...

Below is the finished screen print...

The process is fairly quick but I clean my screen between prints which slows it down a bit as I have to wait for my screen to dry again before I can use it again. Having the heating on and putting them against the radiator speeds the drying time up a bit! 

Some of the tote bags are just printed but others I have added Swarovski crystals, once this one is dry & ironed it will have some crystals added to the centre of the flower. Just adds that nice sparkley finishing touch! 

Ok, that's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by.
