Guest Design For Christine Gray





Good Morning  

I was delighted this week to be a guest designer
For Christine Gray using one of her own
Lovely Digital Images
Available to buy from her blog:


I used the lovely Birds image.

M & M
(Materials and Method)

Bird image by Chris and available to buy on her blog:   HERE
White digital card
Promarker pens
Kraft A4 card
Brown Adirondack Coredinations sheet
Green kraft core Coredinations sheet
Spellbinders Grand Labels  # 23
Special Touch of Mica leaves mask
Ribbon, string, felt leaves (creative expressions) wooden flower.

I printed out the lovely image onto digital card and
coloured using Promarker pens. I cut around
the image to use as the card topper.
The card base is one A4 sheet of Kraft card, folded
to make an A5 landscape card.
I cut the Kraft Core and Adirondack with Spellbinders label # 23
to make layers. After cutting I embossed with
the touch of Mica Leaves mask, then sanded down to highlight the leaves.
I layered the card and finished off with the coloured image.
The bow is made with ribbons and string and topped with a
Wooden flower and embellished with
Green felt leaves.

Affectionately
Vee xx

  10. Hiya Vee, thanks for visiting me and leaving such a lovely message. I do like how you have coloured and embellished this image. Oh..and..as for Grimm, it's ok as an ironing program but I agree it's too lightweight. I will look forward to visiting your blog to have a look around.
