Layering Peel Off’s

I got a bit carried away when I was writing up the bunch of flowers post and thought I would like to do a step by step of the glitter on the peel off’s.

This is the finished card, done with the with back to front peel off’s Daisy2 in white and cerise, Chain Letter Birthday peel off’s and the paper is from the Cloisonne 8 x 8 pad

First take your peel off’s off the sheet and lay then sticky side up on your craft sheet.

Add the centre of the flowers by mixing and matching the different colours of peel off’s. Then dip them into the glitter and flock mix. Cover it well and press the glitter/flock onto the peel off’s.

Use foam pads to attach the flowers to the card to give you a raised flower.

The stems were added with a Sakura pen.

Woodware Challenge 4 Bunch of Flowers

Bunch of Flowers

Bunch of Flowers

 This week I have used layered peel offs  for my flowers, they are really good fun and they are a nice thing to play with when you just want to watch telly and fiddle without much effort. The thing that I like about the peel offs is that you can change the appearance and creat 3D cards with them.

This photograph lets you see that the peel offs have had a home made mix of pink flock and glitter added to the sticky side of them. First peel them off and add centres then add the flock glitter mixture. I used pink, blue and purple peel offs but only the pink glitter/flock mixture. By using the various colours of peel offs I got enough colour variety without the mess that I would have had around the kitchen and the dog with lots off different glitter and flock going around.

The stamped image in the background was done with Onyx Black Versafine and is from a Stampendous Shape Shifter set, if you have not tried shape shifting you really should very exciting! Fran’s video will reveal all Shape Shifting.

The edges were done with a sponge and Stargazer Mica watecolour pallet, and the water in the vase was done with the pallet and a water brush.

Here you can see I have been adding the centres to the pale green leaves from the dark green sheet.

I hope that you have enjoyed this card pop over to the Woodware Blog to see what the rest of the team have been up to.

Woodware Challenge Cards for Men

This is a very simple card that I enjoyed doing very much. I like the dog very much it is from an Artemio Clear Set called Friends. The image was stamped with and then water coloured with Tombow Pens and a blender pen.  I then used a super duper square punch to cut him out and then used a huge square punch to cut the dark brown layer.

cardsForMen1The dog was very easy to water colour and I only used three colours of pen but the blender pen makes it look like so many more colours have been used.

cardsForMen4The happy birthday is a double sided sticky shape.  I have used Cinnamon Flock on it.

The ribbon along the bottom is self adhesive felt which I have also cut and used as a single leaf.  I hope that you have enjoyed seeing this card, if you want to see more cards for men then pop over to the  Woodware Blog. Thank you for visiting.cardsForMen3
