'HAPPY NEW YEAR DARING CARD MAKERS'

Hi, I've decided to have a go and join in with the challenge from the Daring Card Makers.


'New'


So not only New Year, but maybe New Home, New Baby, New Job or maybe a card for someone who is starting a new chapter in their life.


I decided to do this new home card which I hope you like. I love Clarice Cliff pottery and used my version of that stlyle of art. I drew the picture, coloured it in in watercolours and then used my favourite ever product 'glossy accents' to add texture and 'oomph'. I don't actually know anyone whos planning on moving house this year but never mind you never know what might happen in the next 12 months.


Any way here is my card for my first ever challenge....
