WELCOME

This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Blue and Brown Tilda with Sledge

I decided, as I liked the last Tilda with Sledge card so much, that I'd have a go at making the same card (or at least very similar) but in a different colourway.

I love these papers from the HOTP Ultimate Christmas Cardmakers pack. The colours are beautifully matched and the designs are wonderful to work with.

Tilda was stamped and watercoloured with Whispers Brushstroke markers, matted onto chocolate brown card and highlighted with Craft Planet Irridescent Sparkle Glitter Glue and Anita's Metallic White 3D dimensional paint.

Two co-ordinating papers from the HOTP Ultimate Christmas Cardmakers pack were cut to size and the blue piece was stamped using one of the scroll stamps from the HOTP Christmas Scrolls stamp set. This was done using the 3D stamping technique. The inks used for this were Brilliance Moonlight White pigment ink and ColorBox Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk ink.

The two panels were attached to the card blank. A file tab was cut from matching lilac hammer card to the card blank using a Sizzlet die, and the sentiment stamped using two stamps from the HOTP Christmas Motifs set and ColorBox Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk. This was attached behind the Tilda image and attached to the card front.

The scroll stamped image was then highlighted with Anita's Metallic White 3D dimensional paint.
I decided to leave off the snowflakes this time, but the rest is more or less the same as the Pink and Turquoise version.
