after some difficulties with the blog on Sunday I can now edit this post and show you directly what I have been up to
If you have watched Jenny on C & C last Friday you will have seen some of my cards as well and as I thought it might interest some people how I did a few things I took some pics while creating them.
Firstly I made this little number with Otto, the Owl. He can be found here.
I stamped and coloured the image plus a holly sprig from Berries and Birdsand coloured them with Copics. Then I looked for a paper that would give the impression of falling snow but when I couldn’t find anything I liked I decided to make my own.
I randomly placed some small round labels I had lying around (I use them to mark my Ciao pens with their numbers on the end of the caps). Then I used a sponge applicator to rub Memento in Paris Dusk all over the sheet.
When I was happy with the colour I peeled off the labels…
It then looked like this:
Not perfect, but I liked it and the card came out nice, I think.
Next I had promised some people to show how nice the ‘no-lines technique’ would look on the robins from the Berries and Birds set, so I coloured this little fella and I LOVE him! Quite proud of how he turned out…
I wanted to put him on a card that would showcase him without distracting too much so I just stamped the little branch with berries under him and coloured (again in ‘no-lines) and used a die to trace a circle around to frame him.
I then used a craft knife to cut that circle out. Bit of a job between his tiny legs but I managed it.
I placed some coordinating coloured card (die cut this time!) around the cut out and finished the panel with some strips of the same card and pearls. Then I just popped the whole panel up on foam pads and stamped the sentiment through the circle onto the card blank. Voila!
There were a couple of other cards I made, that are quite simple and straight forward so no blurb about them from me… 😉
