that I will be taking to sell at work. I am only showing new ones, not reproductions of ones made before (with the exception of the last post where I showed a revamped one because it has been my most popular ever design)
This is another one which I couldn't get to sit with the top four!! The paper wasn't big enough unless I squashed them up. Can't afford any casualties at this late stage!!
Finally I got chance to play for the sheer sake of it. Something I have little time to do. Now I mentioned in my last post I had a tag that was outstanding, that has now been done & will eventually be posted to Karin in the next week. Sadly no decent photo to share with you yet.
My Chrysalis forum friend, Joanne, has got an article in the new Craft Stamper magazine (October 2010) As a subscriber, I already have my new issue hot off the press.
I love the designs she made & decided as I had time to play, I would make them for myself, but using a different colour palette. I selected, Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters & Peeled Paint Distress Inks for an earthy feel.
What you might not be able to see on here (though clicking on the photo might take you in closer) is that while the background & the black silhouettes were wet (CI-226) I carefully dusted on some Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls. The effect is very pretty. They look less black on the coloured part, almost bronze, but the black on the white remains mainly black with just flecks of the gold. I am very chuffed with the completed pieces.
By backing the designs in shades of green cardstock from the earth collection Co-ordinates, it finshed them off nicely with a touch of black card to make the white stand out.
