is doing a heap of card challenges.
I'm by no means any sort of cardie, but I love to have a go and when stocks are low in my card box, then its time to fill it up.
I've had a wondeful time working with the criteria of each of the challenges. Techniques, products etc, that I'd completely forgotten about.
So here's what I've played with:
Here' I've doodled my daisies and the border.... the coloured petals and leaves are with watercolour pencils
Any sort of birthday card
This is one I struggle with cos being a Shabby Scrapper... crisp clean lines arent usually part of it!
However, this is as close to the criteria I can get without compromising my love of Shabby... and I love how its turned out!
Irini's Sketch Challenge AND IT WON!!!
These leaves I made by pressing real leaves into paint and then cutting out the leaves. Some took a couple of layers of paint to give a 'mottley' look. THen fold the points of the leaves a little to 3D them.
This is to use washi tape on your card.
This chipboard has been in my stash forever!! So glad to finally use it!
I've used my Maya Road resist... This bottle is needle sharp, but allows a fine details.
Here I've painted on a daisy with it...
Painted over with gesso
Sprayed with mist, then rubbed of the resist 'rubber' with my fingers.
It was nice to play with this technique again.
Thanks to the girls at Get Creative...
its been very motivating and inspiring to take part!!
Check back... as I havent finished yet with these challenges!!
