Washi again

This card features a vintage image of a girl in a garden looking at a birds nest.  Again another CAS, First thing I did was to digitally colour the grass, leaves stems and flowers, printed straight onto the white card.

The Washi Tape was stuck to some white cardstock, and then I punched an edge along one side, to make the Washi Flower, I again stuck some tape to white cardstock and then used a flower punch and layered them to create the flow, added a pearl to the centre.

Another CAS.  This one features a train from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More, check out the store HERE.  The image is called, "Choo Choo Charlie"

I printed the image straight onto the card, added some Washi Tape for the tracks and red alpha stickers for the sentiment, I continued the Washi Tape and red lettering inside the card.

Bad picture forgot to take it outside this morning and had to take a quick one tonight in poor lighting, it is white, I so need to invest in a light box..

I chose an image called Happy Flowers to make my square card.   The set has flowers and leaves grouped and single so you can make any arrangement you wish.  I have played around with the images in the set to get my little pot of flowers and leaves, some printed done twice to make them pop.  Mounted on
designer paper with a sticker sentiment to complete the Birthday card.

Tip: when paper piecing, always scultpure the paper, even if it's just over your fingers to give the paper some dimension it will add to the layered effect.

Brown Sugar # 90, 18 April - Use Burlap

Our Sponsor this week is Dr Digi
Go check out the wonderful images in the store

I chose "Green Fingers and Thumbs" for my Burlap project.  She looked like she would love to wear bright  coloured clothes, I have used pinks and aquas from Copic to colour the image.  I made a burlap flower, added a fairy sticker and some journal words.  This is one side of a Friendship page, the theme was fairies.

Red Robin

This lovely image comes from Digistamps 4 Joy and is the monthly image for April, printed and coloured twice with Copic Pens, I have used designer Papers for the card, mounted the bird and branch with 3d stickers, hopefully in some sort of alignment with the branches on the designer paper, so little bird becomes part of the design.  Inside the card, is the same designer paper only a more greener version.  I have added a small gold sticker sentiment.

He stands there on my window sill,
Just singing on and on,
Then he’ll tap, tap. tap for me to see,
Robin Redbreast has come to me,
With his happy Christmas song!
