Today I settled down to turn those images from yesterday into cards.
The first one I worked on was the poppy & not having much success in finding good background in my stash I decided to make my own.l Which is what I should do more often. Some time back I found some Rainbow Inks in a box that I had forgotten about. So I applied those to glossy card by using a homemade applicator & some strips of felt. The colours I used were Posh Pink, Citrus, & Yellow. The Citrus was a greeny yellow. I dabbed them on to the glossy card & then smooshed them into a more solid colour. I then applied some more solution to the applicator & some more Posh Pink, then to finish dropped some pools of solution on to the card for some texture. Surprisingly it all ended up a rather nice red.
I often have a problem with tying bows neatly - especially when I want the tails of the bow (in this case a faux bow) to run down the ribbon. Over the Christmas period I stumbled on a video of how to tie bows neatly & so tried the method - looks like it works. (I will check my favourites because I am sure I saved it & put it in my next post).
The second image gave me quite a bit more of a test. The floral corner. After giving some thought to it I decided to cut around the corner with deckle edge scissors in a corner shape. Then I found it a little more difficult as to what to do with it afterwards. Silly me.
I had a good search through various papers but couldn't decide on one - then this green with a light pattern of leaves on went quite well. It picked up the green in the leaves. I then realised that the obvious shape card was a square one & the idea of cutting the triangle shape to layer the image on just dropped into place. This time in my ribbon box I had the exact colour. I stuck the ribbon down with double sided sticky tape then tied a faux bow which I also stuck in place with DSST. The circular frame is part of the set that the corner image came with. The Thank You & tiny butterfly are an integral part of the frame.
I am really quite pleased with these two cards.
Thank you for popping in & I hope you enjoyed reading about my crafting day.
