Some cards

Post by Scatty on Fri 18 Oct 2013 - 22:36

New home card for DS, and I did two because my niece and hubby have also moved at the begining of the month.



This one is for BIL, Lynda one for you to be proud of me for, its all scraps and wrapping paper reused, envelope the most expensive item then the stamp.



These three are the ones I posted to say they were all crap, sadly I didn't have time to redo the square tree one which I gave to DH for his birthday, the other tree one will go to his Dad in November (he can't see to well so wont care.) Not sure if the lift from craft stamper will get given to aynone or not.

They're smashing Scatty, but I really like the new home one.

The top two are great, Alison: you know I love the less-is-more style and these are excellent examples. Not sure why you were worried about the tree ones - they're quite atmospheric. Shame to not use the other one: how about using a blender/bit of cut-and-dry foam to put some Distress or other colour round the edge and see how that looks? And maybe a couple of jewels in the flourish - that might lift it. Failing that, use a background script stamp (although you'd need to mask the main motif) - Leandra Franich of PaperArtsy used to swear by that for salvaging a piece!

Nice cards. The new home one is smashing, so simple but effective. Could use the bunting for lots of different cards.

Now I think the face and flourish one is fine as it is, but might be tempted to do the blender thing with the trees LOL, likewise thought they're not as bad as you think. Love the simplicity of the new home one, lovely neat pen work, I don't think I could get it that smart.
