Tribute to Mary Konior, Part 3
My tatting lassies and I decided that it would be a nice thing to do to tell Mary's daughters just how much her mother meant to our bit of the tatting world.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if someone did that for our daughter's!
So we made cards.
This is my card...
using my SweetShop and Rose rings heart.
When I found the toning papers I was over the moon.
They come from a Papermania set called Sweet Nothings...that would be a good name for a thread!
Gold peel offs and a bit of bling and a Jane Eb butterfly and a pale green inner liner.
Marjorie's card has another Queen of Hearts this time tatted in two variegated Coats thread, it worked really well. She is a dab hand at card making and having embossed the pink card put a little flower and some pink diamante in each depression....scans just don't do it justice.
Next came Phillis who makes darling cards using little
flowers, I can spot some of my Vanilla Sky in there...
It seemed a pity to take from the front of the card so we put her heart inside...
This one tatted in Raspberry Sorbet.
Next to come in was Carmel's bud fragment, she thought it looked insignificant but once I found the toning papers, a little bit of gold glitter and some initials, and a lilac inner liner, it became a STAR and she was amazed.
Last but not least is Jackies's card which showcases two segments of Black Magic in a soft grey that she dyed. The toning grey paper and ribbon are beautiful.
All ready to post to Mary's daughters, hope they will bring some comfort.
