Guest Designer - Crafty Individuals

Hi everyone,

Well, where has this month gone......... here is the last post from our Guest Designer for March


Today, Cheryl has two lovely projects for us.

To make the first card, Cheryl started with a blank white card and a My Paper World
Stencil - Grasses and Embellishments.  Press the stencil carefully down onto the card on the left side.

Next apply My Paper World Paper Pen - Dark Carmine Red over the stencil, making sure all
areas are covered.  Use a palette knife to smooth paste.

Carefully remove stencil and leave to dry.

On another piece of white smooth card, stamp Crafty Individuals - Bird in Heart 1, twice
using black Archival Ink.

Stick one image on card to right of flourish.
Cut out the bird and flower from second image and decoupage with sticky foam pads

Colour areas on stamped image with Dark Carmine Red Paper Soft Pen as shown in picture.

Add some butterflies to finish.

And now for our second project today..........

For this card, start with a 6x6 blank white card and a piece of scrap paper 4x4.
Place paper centrally on card.
Using My Paper World Clear Stamps - Floral Embellishments and Crimson Archival Ink,
add flourishes to card as shown below. 

When the central mask is removed ...............

Cheryl then added an image from Crafty Individuals paper pad - People and Places
which was mounted onto squares of coloured card and then stuck on top of flourishes.

Add some fibres, beads, buttons and embellishments to finish.

So, there you are, another two beautiful cards from Cheryl.
