Bon Voyage


Hi, today I have a card to show you that I have made using an image by Elizabeth Bell that comes from the 'Summer Daze' Ready To Colour Art Book from Hobby Craft. I have coloured the image using Copic Markers and white and gold gel pens. The background papers are from My Minds Eye. Behind the boy there is a beach scene from Kanban, but it is hard to see as I have added some 'Pearl Moon' Gilding Wax from Creative Expressions and I couldn't get a photo without a lot of glare. The base card and the twine threaded layer have been cut using my Silhouette and the twine is from my local craft shop. I have also used some Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes for the layers. The seaweed border has also been cut using the Silhouette. The sentiment is from Kanban and the Pearls, Crab button and shells are from my stash. The card is 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. I have also used sketch #42 from Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog.

Best Wishes Little Girl


Hello, today I have a card to show you that I have made using an image by Elizabeth Bell from the 'Merry Weather' ready to colour art book from Hobby House. I have coloured the image with Copic markers and a white gel pen. The background papers I have used are from the 'Vintage Bloom' paper pad by Aspire. I have used my new Silhouette Cutting Machine that arrived yesterday to cut mostly the whole card, including the large circle which is one of the free designs that came with the machine along with the tag for the sentiment. The lattice background, flowers and border have also been cut using the machine. I had hoped that buying this machine would make my crafting speed up, but I have found that it now takes me twice as long to create anything because I am having two much fun playing around with all the different designs and effects etc. The lace and pearls are from my local haberdashery and the sentiment is a stamp from my stash. The butterfly's have been cut from the backing paper and I have finished the card with some Stickles glitter glue. The card measures 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches.
