Hi Folks, I have a card today to show you based on a project made by Christine Dark in this month's Craft Stamper magazine. I loved her project as soon as I saw it, and wanted to have a go. I needed to make my FIL a card for his Birthday, so mine is on a masculine theme. However, I'm definitely going to make some more feminine versions as well.
I had an idea in mind, and set about assembling my die cuts, as per Christine's instructions:
It was then a matter of working through the various processes, adding the paint layers, and stamping to get the final look.
The stamping isn't perfect, but then looking at the magazine pieces, it's not meant to be. It is very difficult on multi-layered items to manage perfection! It adds to the distressed, worn feel of the whole thing.
We are off to see my FIL later today, he doesn't really appreciate handmade cards, but I know that I've taken a lot of care over this one, so I guess that's what matters! Anyway, I hope you are having a great weekend, thanks for stopping by, xx
