Yesterday evening I felt I really had to finish some of the cards on my worktop, so I had a very busy time trying to stamp sentiments and work out what die cuts to use to make the card elements harmonise. The black and white one took the most time as I couldn't stamp the sentiment on the white shimmery card. The ink just bled horribly and I tried at least 4 different inks, Papermania, Stazon, Whispers and Momento, and none of them produced a sharp image on the card. I have no idea what the card is, pulled it out of the drawer when I started making the card and thought 'that looks nice'. So then I had to colour some silver peeloff to get something that would fit on the piece I had cut out for it to go on. Why is nothing ever simple?
And if anyone can tell me how to crop pictures on here to get rid of the scenery behind, I'd appreciate it.
This one was a fun one to make, but very fiddly, cutting out all the flowers. It was virtually a straight copy of a card I saw in a magazine, but not using their papers or colourways.Again the paper is pink petticoat, Pointy poinsettias in various toning colours. I do love their papers and the fact that they all available in 50 different colours and, as long as you print all you need at the same time, you can be certain that your colours will all match.
Well I have things to do so must stop,
Blessings to you all
