Hi folks, I've been making a couple of pieces for other people recently, and thought that I'd share them with you.
The first one is a tag that I made for a swap on the Graphicus Guild. The theme was New Beginnings, and I chose the theme of Spring for my tag. I embossed a swirl design in white pearl embossing powder over my tag, and then blended Distress Inks in blues and greens all over the tag. I made a flower, using a Nestability Die, and some Artylicious DP. I coloured the back of the paper with Distress Ink, before scrunching the layers, and fixing them together with a large brad. I used a Marianne die to punch out the stem for the flower. I stamped out a large butterfly with Stazon ink, coloured this with Distress Inks again, and painted key areas with bleach, to highlight them. I added a Tim Holtz fragment to my sentiment, and a steampunk butterfly charm to finish the tag, on a piece of chain taken from a cheap necklace.
My second make is a Birthday card for a friend who comes to my card class. She is a French teacher, so I chose to make my background paper from pages torn from a French poetry book. I stamped an Elusive Images rose over the top, and coloured this with Inktense pencils, to give a faded vintage look.
I ran my tag through the Tim Holtz postcard embossing folder, and coloured it with Distress Inks. and made my flower with left over paper, colouring that with Distress Inks too. I also edged the cream Prima leaves with DIs. A piece of cream lace and an Elusive Images sentiment complete the card.
Thanks for stopping by today, and any comments you leave are very much appreciated, Judith xx
