Here's a couple more cards I made during the hiatus — giving pre-stamped, pre-cut or pre-embossed items a permanent home.
|Tim Holtz rays texture folder, a bit of distress ink. A chicken cut on the Silhouette and |
a bit of chicken wire from a long retired Stampin' Up! background stamp.
|Hero Arts Cloud background. Nestabilities Pinked Circle and |
regular circle (embossed) and Papertrey Ink's Fly Away stamp.
This was a fun solution to what to do with a background with a poorly embossed plane. I cut out a large sun with my pinking circle Nestabilities and then ran it through again with a regular circle to emboss it.
The handmade banner has been in my stash for a long time. I was inspired by Mel McCarthy and her awesome gesso work. I used gesso on a page from an old paperback (I'm guessing it's an Ellery Queen Christmas murder mystery) then freehanded a banner. The lettering is my handwriting and the thing I like least about this card.
The plane shape was cut out using the Silhouette and the lazy snipper tutorial I posted a while back.
