Something a bit different.........

The before ...............



This is something a bit different.  I have seen the crackle technique on Idealworld and I was really keen to have a go myself.  I was amazed at how easy it was creating this look.  I used acrylic paints, PVA glue and a heat gun, added some embellishments and hey presto, a tired box looking not so tired.

Christmas Sepia Card

Christmas Cute Companions - variation on a theme.

This card started out as a bit of an experiment.  I liked this little mouse and I really fancied making a sepia card.   I have seen this technique many times before but not felt confident enough to have a try.  So I applied my little grey cells and hay presto my first sepia card was born. I hope you like it.

Crafters Compnion Challenge 4

Crafters Challenge 4

For this challenge I have used Jenny from Patchwork Polly .  As you can see I have stamped Jenny, flowers and the toy rabbit onto white card and I used ProMarker pens to colour them in.   I've chosen a backing paper from Crafters Companion Popcorn the Bear ‘Kids’ CD and I selected the spotty paper from coordinating backing papers, printed in green. The gingham paper was from Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle CD, I matt and layered the papers. I've used lace ribbon, green crippled paper and assembled the card following the sketch. Oh and I used Crafters Companions silver spray & sparkle on Jenny’s wings, flowers and the rabbit.
