Hi All. Nice of you to visit Jumbled Crafts today-thank you.
I needed to make a card for a friend and I got an idea from Hiding in my Craft Room where the theme this time is Banners.
I started off with a piece of white card and distressed the edges. Then I used the same ink to colour some lace and added that. Next layer patterned paper, then more patterned paper. A doilie, a nestie shape and a beautiful Gecko Galz image that I changed the colour of in Paint Shop Pro.I then stuck the whole lot onto a purple blank card and added my little banners on some lace by attaching them with gold brads. The letters were cut-out with Sizzix dies and my Cuttlebug.
The next make is for the Artful Times Challenge where the theme this time is to make a book no bigger than 2" x 3".
This was difficult but I got there in the end. The outside has been embossed in the Tim Holtz clock folder then various colours of TH Distressed inks used to colour it and also some Glitter Jewels Iced Crystal for texture. It does look shinier in real life but the glitter bits show up green on the photograph.
I added 2 of the cats from the Kitty Tiles Stamp by Hampton Art Stampers. I will be adding more to the pages as there are 12 tiles in the set. This stamp belongs to my daughter and I stamped it a few times when I last visited her.
I have splodged my pages with Distressed inks to match the outside of the book so maybe I will show it again when I finish decorating them.
Love Chrissie x
