did you like the new design of my blog??i somehow didn't like the previous one,and wanted it to change long back.Finally i found time only yesterday,i spent whole evening for designing it,and i absolutely love the new look:))isn't it fresh??:)
Ok coming to the card,as the title suggest i made both the cards only with scraps for priya's challenge.The first card is inspired by Jennifer Mcguire ink,she has done it as CAS card only with the strings n birds.I tried cloud background behind,actually i should have used lightest blue ink for the BG,it was so dominating before,so i made the strings bit thicker and applied white watercolor pencil all over the cloud and now it was bit ok.To bring it still more down,i added a sentiment panel n the sun,hmm..but the clouds are dominating i guess..what do you all think?I have used the tiniest pattern papers to cut the birds,even a bit of paper is not waste when u have dies or punches:))
In this card,the background is made totally with scraps.Love the outcome.Now that i have my tutorial blog i will add tutorials for all the possible n different thing i make.Scroll down for the tutorials or visit my Tutorial blog.
This is all you need..
- Pattern paper scraps
- Distress inks and blending tool
- Circle dies or punches
- Card stock for base&
I have used first 2 sizes of spellbinders plain circle dies for this,you can even use some medium size punches if you don't have the dies.
First cut all the papers in 2 to 3 different size.Distress them individually.
Glue all the pieces individually n start sticking one by one over lapping each other.Since it is in circle shape go outside the card stock in the corners.Stick in the same style for whole of the card stock,remember the card stock should not be seen any where.
Once you finish it off,allow to dry for some time and trim the excess in the outer edge.You can either stop with this step and use as it is.Or try the next step to give even more finishing.
I have embossed it with distressed stripes embossing folder,this will help you to merge all the papers well and give a finished look as a single paper.
- Use only 2 to 3 size of circles,not more than that.
- Stick it in a balanced way with alternate light n dark color n sizes.
- Don't not use a very intricate design embossing folder or a simple one,the former will not allow the pattern paper designs to show off,the later will not be seen at all.Use a medium one.
