Gorjuss Girl

I am entering this card into the totally gorjuss Challenge 65 As you like it

This card is for my niece Sophie, I have use a craft work shaped card which i have distressed with Tim Holt's bundled sage, and added faux stitching round the edges. My image is from a gorjuss girl decoupage page and the backing paper is from the same pack. The sentiment is stamped on a artisan shape which was cut on my silhouette machine with a little bow to finish. I haven't posted a photo but i also distressed the back and inside of the card and added more backing paper on the inside of the card and stamped a further sentiment.

Second Silhouette sketched Card

This card I have sketched using the music sheet, which I did with the black pen and then I have distressed it with tea dye. I thought it would compliment edwin with his guitar. I also used the silhouette to cut the little musical notes. Again I have used papermania craft card.

My camera does not pick it up but i used glossy accents on the guitar

Just finished it off with faux stitching
, I will add a sentiment later.

Silhouette Sketching

Happy New Year to you all, I have no resolutions but if i did it would be to craft more and to blog more so here to the first of the year.

Here is a couple of cards that have been helped along with my silhouette machine. I thought I would give the sketching feature ago as I have had the pens a while now but not really bothered with them.

My first card is using a flower sketch.

I have use the silhouette software for all the matting and layering of this card. First was to do the sketch I put in the required measurements and let it do its bit then I used the cutting feature to cut it out I created a mat in red card and a scalloped mat in white all on the softwares cutting matt so I could see that all the sizing was correct. I have used papermania craft card and add some ribbon and stamp a sentiment.

I drew around the scalloped edge with a whispers pen to just bring in the colour of the sketch.
