Hello blogger friends.
Firstly I just want to give a warm welcome to my new followers. I hope you enjoy coming to visit and hopefully get some inspiration along the way. I love to read all the comments that you leave and I appreciate them very much. xx
Hope your having a super weekend with lots of crafting going on. Not much crafting for me this weekend. Too much ironing and ferrying the children around.
It's Chinese New Year today...so Happy New Year!
GUNG HEI FAT CHOY!
My card today is not a Chinese New Year card but an 18th Birthday card I made for Leonie's best friend Laura. I suppose it was a bit of a commissioned card. Leonie chose the image , the papers and the colour scheme. The jury's out on this one for me. It's much brighter than my usual cards.
I followed Tina's sketch over at Live and Love crafts and made the card 8x8 so we didn't have to squash it all in. The little BMAC pennants stand for Best Mate After Chocolate which is how they refer to each other. It's a bit of an in joke, so Leonie wanted it on the card.
The image is 'Secrets', a Saturated Canary image and has been coloured with Copics.
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Greens: G20, YG03, YG05 and G20, G21, G24
Browns: E40, E41, E42, E43
Grey/White: C00, C0,C1
Cans: C0, C1, C3, C5
The '18' and the little heart charm were made using shrink plastic. Leonie painted these and shrunk them. She's always loved shrink plastic. I don't think the fun of shrinking things ever stops.
