Well it's that time of year again. As we approach the start of a brand new year and look back on the one we've finished, and every year at this time Debby posts her Favourite 5 of the Year. Many of us join in with her, I've done it the last couple of years and I'm joining in again this year.
It's always hard to pick just 5 cards when you make a lot, so for this reason alone, I'm not posting any Christmas cards in this pick and I'll make a separate post for those.
Honestly even taking out all the Christmas cards it was hard, there were so many I wanted to chose, but there was only room for 5, so here goes...
This card was made almost right at the beginning of the year and it won me a Guest Spot on the Saturated Canary design team.
This card is just one of my most favourite, love the way this one turned out, from the colours to the glitter, I don't think I could have been happier with this card.
It's not often I make cards for commissions, and this one had very particular requests so I was quite worried before I started making it, as it turns out it came together into a very sophisticated and stylish card, love the contrasts in this one, and it was a rare outing for my poor neglected Copics,
I loved colouring in the image on this one, but really I chose this as my top 5 for the card design, love the way it turned out, even the inside.
Now I'm sure you've noticed that 3 of my 5 so far have been Saturated Canary images, I do love them and they are such fun to colour that I probably use them more than any others on my cards (you may find my Christmas card picks feature a different artist quite strongly though), but I fell in love with this image from Digistamp Atelier and even went rather CAS compared to my normal style.
So that's my final top 5 for the year. I hope you like them and if you want to join in the fun just follow the link.
Be careful out there :) xx
