Tuesday 5 July 2011


I'm feeling a little under the weather today - and it's raining! Mind you, the garden desperately needs it and they say it will brighten up this afternoon so I hope my mood does too. This is a very simple C6 card that I've made for the Marie Curie appeal run at my local art and craft store. I've coloured up the LOTV Angel Gabriel Nativity image with my Copics then simply matted with kraft card and 3d mounted onto the kraft card base. I've inked the edges with Versamagic chalk inks in Magnolia Bud and then ran Jumbo Java around the edge of everything as the kraft has a white core and I didn't want it to show. Embellishments are little stars covered with a gold pen and gold glitter, then finished off with a double bow tied with Crumb Cake seam binding from Stampin' Up!

The For Fun challenge blog are looking for Christmas in July, as is Our Creative Corner - I do hope they like my CAS style. I coloured up the image some time ago so don't remember exactly which colours of Copic pens I used, but I touched up the sheet on Sunday with B0000, 000, 00 and 02 as it looked a bit wishy washy. The angel's clothing is the paler E40 shades and the little shepherd's are the B90s. For the peachy pink wings and headdress I used the R0s, although looking at the photograph they are very washed out so perhaps I will try touching them up a tad too.

  9. Take care Annie - & just allow yourself time. I have to say I think this is a beauty - the kraft & blue with those delicate hints of peachy pink just work so well. The gold star embellishments & the gpld glittering of the image is so effective too.
    Much love
