My Blog today is of two cards that I made from Beatrix Potter CD's
The first is based around a small easel card from the Jeremy Fisher CD.
I matted the easel pieces onto coordination card and then centred the base onto a 6x6 card.
and shaped the side edges to match.
The other paper was also on this CD it is a lovely damask design. I covered the top , made an extra sheet for the insert, and cut scroll embellishments with a Spellbinders die from it.
The edges I distress with Tim Holtz ink.
The gems are also from the Beatrix Potter range
My second card is from the Exclusive World of Beatrix Potter CD.
This is an accordion card which has a different picture from each angle, as the card is detailed enough I kept it simple using borders from the CD to make a frame and cut fancy borders to surround the edges.
I am however quite chuffed with my carrots made using a strip of matching paper and a quilling tool. I rolled the strip quite tightly then stuck the end down, when it was dry using progressively smaller embossing tools I pushed into the centre until I had a carrot then added a few fern type leaves for the top. I think Benjamin Bunny would approve.
At 9.0pm this evening Sara Davies will launch the latest additions to the Beatrix Potter Collection on Ideal World So sit back and watch these lovely little characters take centre stage.
Today I have been playing with Luminarte sprays and dabbers hopefully the results will be good enough to end up as samples, only time will tell.
Tomorrow I'm off to Birmingham for the NEC with Louise Welsh and Leann Chivers. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!
Happy Crafting. xxx
