|I’m not much of a one for sketches, I am often amazed by how people can interpret a series of geometric shapes into a fantastic card but I don’t find they do anything for me… until… |
My cousin gave me a pile of old mags and I found this article by one of my faves Jo Kill and not only was I inspired to properly try my hand at machine stitching, I’ve since made four cards in the same style:
(of course I only remembered to photograph two!). I’m pleased with this woodgrain, I versamark’d and clear embossed the wood grain stamp onto white card, coloured over it with weathered wood Distress Ink, sliced it up into ‘planks’ and glued it back together onto a backing sheet after roughing up and inking the edges. I let it dry but decided I wasn’t happy with the contrast so I rubbed a white chalk ink pad over the surface to fade the colour out a bit and I like it a lot better! The Stampin’ Up! bird is stamped on a digi paper I altered in Photoshop to resemble a lovely shirt Noel Edmonds was wearing on Deal Or No Deal the other week! Inspiration is everywhere, folks!!
