Welcome to Wednesday

Morning all,

My first make has an entirely vintage feel to it, not my usual style I grant you but I was quite taken with the image and, until I saw this, I was unfamiliar with the brand so, without further ado ..... here it is....

My card
And a closer view of my coloured image
The front and back of my card and the front of my envelope
The inside of my envelope and the reverse of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 5¼" x 4" and 5" x 3¾"
  • Burgundy and grey card used to mat with a narrow border
  • Funny Bones image stamped using Versafine onyx black ink (Ranger Archival shadow grey for the insert)
  • Derwent coloursoft pencils used to colour, blended with a Finesse blender pen
  • Recollections and Hero Arts sentiments stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Mod Podge dimensional gloss used on the glasses and stardust stickles to highlight

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Crafty Cardmakers - challenge No. 188 - ADD A SENTIMENT
  2. Fairytale challenge - challenge No. 168 - FOCUS ON THE SENTIMENT
  3. Unicorn challenge - challenge No. 21 - SPECIAL OCCASION
  4. Lemon Shortbread - challenge No. 41 - ANYTHING GOES

And I have a quick (ish) ATC to share too .... using another new image from a company I was previously unfamiliar with - YAY!

And a closer view which I HOPE will show the stickles (rollers) and gloss (mug)
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in grey, aubergine and white
  • Gourmet Rubber Stamps image stamped on to white snippet using Memento tuxedo black
  • Derwent coloursoft pencils used to colour image ... once coloured I fussy cut round the image
  • Lime organza ribbon wrapped around the aubergine layer and taped in to place
  • On to the ATC blank I matted grey and then aubergine, leaving a narrow border
  • My Sentiments Exactly line of circles stamped using Versacolour gold ink
  • Once my ATC was assembled I used a Tsukineko gelly roll gel pen (white) to doodle a border around the image panel and around the outer matting layer
  • Stardust stickles and Mod Podge dimensional gloss to just finish it off

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Tuesdsay Throwdown - challenge No. 342 - DOODLES
  2. Try It On Tuesday - May 9th challenge - LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT
  3. Through The Craft Room Door - May 9th - 15th - ANYTHING GOES

Two brilliant creations Kathy and the first image does look very vintage and works well for an anniversary, and your sweet and funny lady and I love her sparkly rollers and the glossy mug, and both images coloured beautifully. Your desk looks as though you have been busy too. x

A card and an ATC and your desk?!! What a bonanza! Love your creations, Kathy! Why do I feel like the first one means "together with their drinkie poos?," haha! Slurp! And that lady on your ATC looks like she might have had too many the night before! Fantastic execution on everything, as always!! Hugs, Darnell
