Thank you

Published December 11, 2008 by isisimaginings

It’s been over a week since my last post. I wasn’t in the mood to write anything & then I spent a few days in London with my friend Jen, who came over from the USA. More of that later. First, I want to thank everyone for taking the time to leave such lovely comments on my last post, it means a great deal to me. And a big thank you to Rica & Irene for this award. I love butterflies, so this is special to me.

Before last week’s events I made three cards, using LOs from Loretta & Clare at docrafts. Hopefully, you can see the sketchs in the cards. This one was an attempt to tell a story with the image, of a little bear who was so excited to get a Christmas gift that he couldn’t wait to get home to open it! The Forever Friends stickers were a freebie in a recent edition of the docrafts magazine, I stuck them onto plain cardstock, cut them out & used 3D foam pads to attach them to another piece of card, which I painted with watercolour pencils, to try to create the sky & snowy grass. I used glitter glues on the trees & the bear’s hat, also on the grass, but the picture doesn’t show it clearly. I heat embossed the snowflakes on to the green backing paper with pearl embossing powder. I found the metal snowflake in my stash – I think it’s from Papermania & attached it to the ribbon with a red jewelled brad.
I think I will give this card to my brother, it will make him laugh! Loretta’s sketch for this challenge was very simple, so I tried to keep all the elements simple. I coloured Edwin with watercolour pencils – not sure why I chose green for his sack though!
This third card uses one of Claire’s sketches. I realised I hadn’t made a Christmas card using my favourite colour – purple. I didn’t want it to be OTT, so I used a piece of starry Papermania paper for the background & pieces of ribbon & adhesive gems from my stash. Tilda was coloured with watercolour pencils & then covered with Anita’s 3D gloss. I really liked this card & then I wrecked it. When I scanned it I didn’t realise the gloss on Tilda’s face was still wet. It stuck to the scanner & when I removed it half her face came off!!! I was so annoyed with myself. I’ve patched it up, but it’s not good enough to give to anyone.

I made some cards today, but will post them tomorrow. I will also reveal the mystery gift that I made for Jen a few weeks ago. I’m relieved to say that she loved it.
Love & light.

  • These are all so lovely Kisten. I love the embossed snowflake background on the first one, and the gorgeous purple colours of the other two. As for the little accident you would hardly notice, just hope your scanner is OK!Love Sarita xxx
