Well this week was my turn to choose the theme on Tuesday Taggers and I chose Christmas in July. We all know that every year we say that we are going to start our cards earlier than last year and each year we (most of us anyway) get them done in the last week of November whilst panicking about other things Christmassy.
I have done three cards that use Old Olive and Chocolate Chip, not normal christmas colours but mix them with the Serene Snowflakes stamp set and dazzling diamonds and you are set for a season of bling.
To get the Dazzling Diamonds to stick I have used the two way glue pen to add dots to the snowflakes.
I have used the Old Olive satin ribbon from the Mini Catty to embellish and here you go.
Well I have done it again, only this time I had my entry for Tuesday Taggers ready on Saturday when I was away for the weekend on a crafty weekend with a few of my teamies and also a few new people that I met.
Here is my entry for this weeks challenge which is Canvas. I decided to steer away from what everyone else is doing. They have all done a stretched canvas, I have used a piece of canvas that I got from my local material shop.
I have used 3 different stamp sets for this little card (6" square). Pocket Silhouettes, Flight of the Butterfly and Tiny Tags. I have used Old Olive, Garden Green and Melon Mambo as my colours. I have stamped a mixture of the PS stamps along the bottom of the canvas and the vine along the top of the canvas. I have used the smallest butterfly (from Flight of the Butterfly) and stamped it in Melon Mambo, using Pink Passion pen to make the dots. I have made a frame for the canvas from Very Vanilla and stamped around with the tiny tags stamp. I have edged both inside and outside edges with Pink Passion again to make it 'pop' off the page. I have then finished the card with a length of Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon.
Don't forget to go and look at the fab work that my teamies have done at Tuesday Taggers.
Now this is not me making a scene in a physical sense but in my work. Michelle my lovely teamie on TT's has set the theme this week and it is Make a Scene.
I have chosen to use my brayer again and actually had a happy accident. I masked off to make the sun and actually went over the edge of the post-it so I had to make the reflection. I have brayered the sky as I would usually. I have masked off where the land is with 2 post-its, the top one with its natural edge and another that I have torn on the sticky part and used a sponge dauber to do the grass.
I did the reflection of the sun by just rubbing my dauber in horizontal lines down the page and then brayered the water over the top. I have stamped and masked my Trendy Trees on the 'land' and 'Bambi' from Forest Friends. To get the 'reflection' I stamped my image on the back of (smooth side) of my Stamp a ma jig imaging sheet and then placed it on my image where I wanted it ink side down and rubbed the ink onto my image and tadah you have a reflection.
