I thought before I tootle off for the weekend I'd show you the first three cards made using some of the gelli plate prints as shown on yesterday's post. So without further preamble, here's the first.
Caroline's Blogs) and the greeting (Wild Rose Studio again) is just stamped with Jet Black Archival and the edges sponged with the same distress inks as used previously. To make the black matting layer, I traced around the edge of the topper and then trimmed about one-sixteenth of an inch around it ... not very precise but it works when you haven't got a die to do the job for you. The only embellishment is the black and white saddle stitched ribbon - hopefully still masculine enough for the intended male recipient :)
I've just realised that these cards are all more or less in shades of blue ... I'll just call it my blue phase :) I did use other colours too which will no doubt make an appearance at some point.
And just in case you think I've not decorated the inside and back of the cards as usual, here they are.
The leftovers and snippets used on the last card means that I'm scooting over to Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground (Week 84). However, I'm not too sure Miss is even going to be around today, she's been out and about with our crafty playmates, Sam (Hettie) and Maureen (ScrappyMo) - our Canadian friend who is in the UK on vacation ... read more about it here!
Right, that's me done for now - I've a ton of things still to do and I've still to pack ... help! Where does the time go to?
I hope you all have a great weekend and happy crafting too,
