My samples for Create & Craft Pick of the Week shows launched on 30th December 2011.This 8x8 monochromatic design was printed onto Super Smooth white card which I then sanded around the edges to distress and then matted and layered on white and printed card which was also distressed. The printed sentiment tag was inked around the edges using Distress Ink - Black Soot - and I also inked white ribbed ribbon with the same ink to tone it to a greyish colour. Using a printed background on Super Smooth paper I used my Spellbinder dies - Anemone Flower Topper and Floral Flourishes -to create the flower and embellishment flourishes. Metal corner embellishments and clear adhesive gems complete this design.
This landscape A4 card was created on Super Smooth white card using various artwork elements manipulated to represent a city street. I cut around the rooftops to give a different skyline finish, decoupaged the window boxes and steps and glazed each window with 3d Crystal Lacquer to give another dimension. The interior of the card is an exact shadow of the front of the card except for the end building which I left in full colour. I printed the New Home sentiment on toning card and cut out using deckle edge scissors. Some paper flowers from my crafty stash and adhesive gems complete this design.
The 3rd and final card is also an A4 landscape and this is the interior view of the Craft Shop.
This is the front view of my Pink Ribbon Crafts shop. Wishful thinking on my part - who wouldn't love their very own craft shop? I couldn't not do this one, now could I...lol?
I manipulated the elements to create the layout and then overlayed it with the shop front from which I cut out the window and door glass areas and backed them with acetate. The shop front was put onto the background using 3d foam tape. I created the shop sign by adding a printed ribbon and text which I decoupaged and layered it to give depth above the decoupaged shop awning. The sentiment tag was printed on toning card and cut using Spellbinder die - Scalloped Ovals - and gems and another piece of printed ribbon were added to embellish. The inside of the shop was printed again and used as an insert - see previous photo.
