God's Opinion

Hmmm, what shall I show you today?





Recently, my BFF asked if I could make her a selection of cards
as her stock was low.  Of course, I said 'yes' , so among the birthday cards,
I tucked in a couple of baby cards, one for a boy and one for a girl.




Yes, I know they are both the same, but with a little change of colour, 
it's easy to make a simple but pretty design.

The little giraffe was a freebie on a recent magazine 
and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up! called 'Occasional Quotes'
[I'm not sure whether it is discontinued as it's a few years old].

My friend was very happy with the selection of cards I made for her,
the least I can do when she makes me gorgeous quilts!
 
Happy Crafting!

Angel Gate


Ooh, I'm EXCITED!
I've been published again, this time with a little
off-the-page canvas that I called Angel Gate.





I started by glueing a layer of white tissue paper to the pre-gessoed canvas, then added 'squeezed lemonade', 'mustard seed' and 'fossilized amber' Distress Inks until I was happy with the colour.

A script stamp was added randomly, followed by Modellier Creme through a stencil and allowed to dry.




A chipboard gate was given some finger painting using Silk glaze,
and finished off with crackle accents for added interest.

The angel was coloured with pencils for her skin and hair, and Distress Ink for her dress and wings.
Although you can't see it in the photo, her wings have Wink of Stella shimmer added.




You can find these instructions and lots more, in Issue 5 of Creative Papercraft - out now!

I'm off to read all the other projects, so until next time .....
