My Corner Shop

I am very happy to announce the opening of EdithDesigns CornerShop. I have been working in my drawings for a long time to use in my cards. Many people had asked me about them. Today I started to sell them. I will appreciate your visits on my site! I will be adding sketches permanently.

Miss Cow, YOU ROCK!

This is Miss Cow, the rocker girl.

This is one of my favorite sketches, although I must say that all my drawings are my favorites (and I have many!! LOL!) The first time I made a card with Miss Cow, I made the sketch with her best friend, Jay the little pig, flying in a balloon. This time I put her boots and she is playing the guitar. She also has sunglasses, as befits a rock star.

I used layers of Bazzill card stock and a beautiful paper with rockers designs highlighted with glitter. The guitar and the sunglasses have crystal effect. I think this is a card to someone special, for any occasion:)

I will always be there for you

I made this card with a beautiful stamp of Charlie, from the Whiff of Joy, which was a gift that my friend Cindy gave me some time ago. I guess this is the second or third card that I made using a stamp:)

I added one of my drawings for the background. This castle is similar to the one I designed for a card that I made some time ago, with a princess and a toad. I used different printed papers to make the "grass" and "water". The castle has a drawbridge that is lifted. I have painted the “chains" that raise the bridge with silver metallic paint.

The water under the bridge has a crystal effect (Clear Glass Finish, Liquid Embossing from All Night Media). I used the same effect on Charlie's armor. I painted Charlie and the castle with watercolors and inks. I loved to use this stamp. Thanks again, Cindy!

Simply Violets...

I like all the flowers in shades of blue. I love violets. They are so simple and so beautiful. I made this sketch some time ago and I always pictured it in a simple card for any occasion. I called "Simply Violets"I used several layers of card stock and a matching paper in blue tones.

The decor of this card is also very simple and quiet. I cut low edges with a Fiskars borders punch and I added a couple of small brads on the sides. On the top I put a bow that I made with a beautiful blue ribbon. I added a crystal flower in the center. Simple, like Violets...
