Its a mixed up title covering three cards today. Just the one post so lots to look at.
My first card I have used the ?? die. I tried looking up this style but couldn't see it and I don't have the packaging. Anyway I cut the panel out four times, yellow, blue, white and black and played around till I liked the result.
I used a panel of double sided tape to adhere everything to the card front.
I then decided to do the sentiment and cut it out in Silver, white, black then white glitter paper and ended up using the white glitter paper and the black cut out and slightly off centre attached to give the look of shadow.
Even managed to keep track of the 'i' dots. Quite pleased with the end result and enough left over to do another couple of cards.
This next card I decided to try an Autumn card.
We don't tend to celebrate Autumn in Australia, to the same degree as I see overseas. Also as the other side of the world starts into Autumn we are starting into Spring and its already getting quite warm. I don't have any Autumn sentiments or stamps. I saw a stencil down the local craft ship and purchased that so decided to go Autumn with it.
I just used one of the leaves and blended with Distress inks, a wee bit of olive green that just isn't showing up in these photos but is there, a bit of pumpkin orange, barn door red and mustard yellow.
I just turned the leaf in different directions as I moved up the page. For a sentiment I decided this one ' Take Time to Enjoy the Simple Things' was appropriate for Autumn. Kill need to build my collection. This card is a one layer one too and my second attempt. My first card I didnt notice I was colouring a stray stem as I went that was further out on the card, so had to mask that for next time. I'm quite pleased with this result.
My last card was a quick colouring of this ever so cute image
I love the way the little puppy is sitting on her shoes and I felt the sentiment suited the image to perfection. All coloured with Copics and a bit of spotty/dotty grass.
I love the colours I used together here, the coolness of the mint and the softness of the lavender. Bit of dotting there to give the puppy texture.
Finished the card off with a little wood bird flying off into the sunset.
I also did a pile of colouring of backgrounds using small stamps as I really find that enjoyable these days but I then struggle to work out what to do with them, not wanting to cover up any of that wonderful colouring.
Anyway I hope you all enjoyed your visit and come again soon.
without the topping for this one.
'P' for puppy or pet
