Some cards I've missed sharing...

Hey everyone,
Thanks so much for the comments on my last post! I really appreciate your feedback. It helps me to get over being shy about posting my own artwork.
Here are a couple of cards that I just realized that I haven't shared yet. They're from Christmas as well. As you can see I don't do seasonal well ;) Hope you like them!
I've really enjoyed learning how to create background texture with acrylic paint. Especially like how it turned out in this one. I used Spiral Branch Set and Flying Hummingbird 3 from my stamp collection.
In this one I used an old plastic doily that I found at my grandparents house to sponge paint through (top left and bottom right). I also used Hanging Droplets Set and Luna.
Well that's it. Just a short one from me today :) Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Gorgeous, I especially love the bottom one :) Have a great day. Hugs, Shirleyxx

  2. Love your use of colours Ryn, your hummingbird is stunning and pops off the page! :-) xxx
