Blueprint in yellow {by Tracy Thompson}

Good morning, I'm here now as a member of the Design Team and not a Guest, I was really chuffed to be promoted to the team and join all the other lovely members, this is my first official post.

Here is two of my creations I made for the Septembers show, the one above is created using Chrysanthemum Blueprint , I decoupaged the image after colouring it with pencils and highlighting with a white gel pen.  I did some yellow ink splatters on the white of the card.  I then layered that on to another background I made by splodging ink on to acetate and then dipping my card into it.  It took a fair bit of time to do the fussy cutting but so worth it.

For this tag I firstly made a faux wood effect background and then made a pocket, which to me was like adding a window box or planter.  I again did some fussy cutting, I cut the Lupins from the Lupin Blueprint stamps out then coloured them, always cut first as they cut better then when they have been coloured.  I coloured with pencils and highlighted again.  I added a butterfly which is from Butterfly Mind set, and a sentiment from the Butterfly Perfumery set.

Thank you for stopping by

Happy crafting

The background, colours and the dimension that it has all work together perfectly. I shall look forward to seeing many more of your lovely makes xx

  2. Congratulations Tracy and I love both the card and the tag, beautiful detail with the colouring and decoupaging on the card, and then the very intricate fussy cutting on the tag, and the faux wood background looks terrific. x
