Greetings to all my cyber-guests :-)
I have not actually made much in the past few days.... but thought I would share this card from a blitz a couple of weeks ago.
I started by playing with a new Cuttlebug embossing folder that I had - Flourished Frame. I ran the white card through and liked the result, but thought I would emphasis the embossing by running a brayer over it loaded with Brillance Mediterranean Blue ink. The embossing picked it up beautifully, and so did the plain areas in the background!
Time for some lateral thinking, so I cut out the the embossed image and layered it onto the green base card.... it's amazing how quickly a card can 'change direction' during construction!!
I then cut a small square of the same white card to fit the frame, and stamped the two Pukeko (Swamp hens) side by side using the stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up. Next I coloured them with S.U. pencils and a blender pen, adhered them to the centre and wondered where to place the greeting... That done I still was not completely satisfied, and then spotted my paper piercer and after a few seconds of work it was completed.
Thanks for calling by - I love it when you leave a comment too.
