Today I am feeling almost human again, but it has taken me most of the day to make one card!!!
It is for the Make My Monday challenge where they are looking for a card of Autumn Inchies (one inch squares!!) including Flora and Fauna.
Here it is
I started by Versamark stamping the main image onto vanilla card and heat embossing it with black powder. It was then coloured with Promarkers and cut into nine Inchies, which were then layered on to slightly bigger Inchies of lilac and green card. I then Versamark stamped the leaf sprig several times up the edge of some brown card and heat embossed it in black. Some thin green ribbon and lilac cord were then wrapped around the bottom of the brown card and it was matted onto a square cream card. The nine pieces were matted onto the brown card with 3D pads for dimension. The sentiment was treated the same as the main image and placed on the bottom over the ribbons. I then stamped a Sparrow onto some cream card and coloured it with Promarkers, before using a brayer to stamp it's reverse image and coloured it in. They were then placed either side of the sentiment on 3D pads.
Here is a closer view of the Sparrows ( the original stamp is on the left )
Recipe : Card = Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Orchid Opulence, and cream card from my stash
Stamps = Fresh Cuts and Papermania
Inks = Versamark, and Promarkers
Tools = Heat gun, and Speedball brayer
Extras = Black embossing powder, ribbon, chord, and 3D pads
Hopefully my new Stampin Up stuff will be delivered this weekend, and I can have a good play and find my mojo again!!
Thanks for stopping by today, and to all of you lovely crafters that have left get well messages for me.
I hope I will have something new for you to see when you call again!
