I hope you have managed to catch up with one of our TV shows on The Craft Channel. It has all be very exciting if not a little hectic and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your encouraging and supportive comments. This means a lot to all of us at CB towers, we are a team and so on behalf of Sue, Val, Judith, Debbie, Julie, Claire, Zoe, Ann, Florence, Asha, Miranda, Dominike and myself
YOU ARE ALL BRILLIANT!
I also appreciate that many of you may not yet be able to watch this channel and so I am posting one of the cards I demonstrated on the first show.
- To achieve this card take a piece of patterned paper, I used one from the Crafty Individuals paper pad Travels in Italy and stamp the large tree from Patchwork Landscape in Versafine Onxy Black.
- Use a black fineliner pen to extend the outline at the bottom of the tree so that it is grounded.
- Use coloured pencils similiar to the colours in the paper to colour the foliage of the trees and use shades of green and yellow to create the slope under the tree.
- Stamp the word Imagine, from Artistic Expressions and then mat and layer on to first black card, then a toning background paper (the one I used was kindly donated by Judith and was made with her Gelli Plate) and finally on to a large 8" square black card.
I hope this will encourage you to look at your background papers in a different way and that you will give this technique a try.
