And today, it's Karen's birthday so I can finally blog her card! This card is along the same line's as Wendy's card in my previous post, just a different Vera Lane digi image. I do so love these images - I don't usually do 'cute', preferring grungy and messy playtimes, but these images have an quirky edge to them which I like. Again, I used a couple of my own hand made stamps to add extra dimension to the card.
That's it for birthday cards - I don't make many these days, possibly just 4-6 a year as I prefer to do more in the way of ATCs or canvases. So next time I'm here I promise to bring you something a little bit different!
Today is my friend Wendy's birthday so I can finally blog the card I made for her :) As seems to be the case with most of my cards at the moment, I used a gelli print for the background with some additional stamping using one of my hand carved stamps. The image is a digi image from Vera Lane, coloured with Pro Markers and the sentiment was printed using the Dymo machine.
(Apologies for the wonkiness of the scan, I didn't realise it was quite this bad at the time I scanned it!)
Last week I made a couple of cards for friends in the Asian art group I am a member of, using gelli prints as backgrounds and Vera Lane digi stamps, coloured with Pro Markers. I've not used digi stamps before because I always felt like it was 'cheating' for some reason! But, I must say, I do like that you can print them out any size you like, there's no storage problem and you'll always get a perfect image!
