Today, I just want to show off my latest KennyK gothic Angelz cards. I still can't get too into Xmas at the moment, and I love doing these, if only because I need to practice colouring them in.
I'm not very good at skin tones yet, and light and shade toning seems to come and go with me. Every time I think I've cracked the technique, it seems to go wrong again.
I have done some small Christmas cards and I may put them up later, but today I'm trying to catch up on adding missing inserts to the cards I've already done, ready for this table sale that's pending. Also, bagging and labelling needs time spent on it.
About Blackbutterfly Cards
I started making cards for pleasure in 2007, and quickly found my home was becoming swamped by cards everywhere. I decided to put some of them up for sale on a webpage in an effort to recoup some of the costs of my hobby. I called the webpage Blackbutterfly Handcrafted Cards, and it can be found at http://www.blackbutterfly2007.co.uk/
I try to take my cards to a couple of table sales or craft fairs a year, but make my cards mainly for friends and family. I would love the website sales to take off, as I nowhere near cover the costs involved in this all absorbing hobby, but for me the main thing is the pleasure I have in making my cards.
Recently I have decided to expand my blog to cover my other interests too. It's a sort of substitute for going to work and chatting to people, as due to ill health I was unable to work, and since the beginning of 2014 I am officially a pensioner.
Although I'll still show my cards, I'll also be covering my other interests and how I attempt to make ends meet day by day.
In fact anything that crosses my mind will be on here, so be prepared for waffle and a wasted five minutes as you read. Make coffee and settle in, why don't you?
