Some time ago I bought a couple of packs of hessian (burlap to those of you on t'other side of the pond) and somehow they have miraculously disappeared...how could somethings as large as that make themselves invisible? I can understand how a pokey tool and the die letter K could have gone AWOL, they are much smaller...anyway I bought another pack and this is the first card to utilise it!
The leaf was cut with a die from Impression Obsession from a piece of craft foil. It began life coloured red, but I used a few other alcohol inks and some blending solution on it to get this effect which I rather like. The dies emboss veins on the leaves too which is really realistic.
The sentiment is cut from a die by Penny Black.
It's for the challenge at Just Us Girls
It's also for the 'Thanks' challenge at AAA cards
The challenge at Addicted to CAS is to use the ombre technique.
Here I used a few shades of Distress Ink applied with sponge daubers.
The die cut scene is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment from Find It Trading Yvonne Creations.
It was actually made using up some ovals left over from some thank you cards which I made for my son and DIL.
Their precious, long awaited daughter arrived in August and they have been overwhelmed by the generosity of colleagues, friends and family and have lots of thank you cards to send. This is one of the latest set of thank you cards I have made for them.
This gorgeous picture of Cleo was taken by a professional photographer and I adore it.The thank you is from a die by Penny Black and the rest of the wording is computer generated.
I'm still working on finding uses for all the other ovals cut to make the apertures!
