Sometimes the only way you can get the card you want is to make it (or have it made for you) by hand. I was asked to make a birthday card for my friends daughter to give to her Grandad who she calls Granda.
I knew that the person it was for had his own boat so asked my friend if she had a picture of it, the following card is the one I made.
I used the Cathedral Background die in coconut white card which I laid over a rich red piece with an oval cut from the center. The greeting was created on my silhouette cameo using the white sketch pen and then I used the Expressions Ornate Frame – Just Because to mount it onto the card above a strip created with the border from the Scandinavian Collection – Corner, Border & Tag
I recently discovered Tim Holtz’s Summer of Creative Chemistry ( a bit late to the party I know) and I have been having fun creating tags from the Creative Chemistry 101
I was particularly pleased with the brushless watercolour one in the middle, done with Lisa Hortons stamps.
Here is the one I did for the challenge for week 1 which was:
Your challenge is create a tag, card, or other project using FOUR OR MORE COLORS OF DISTRESS INK.
I used Barn Door, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord on my tag background and I love how it came out.
I purchased all 5 sets of Lisa’s stamps from Set Craft and have made a set of cards with them. I thought I would share a step by step tutorial on how I created them.
Here is the set I created. Unfortunately I couldnt capture the shine on the backgrounds that the Pixie Powders create.
