Happy Saturday!!




Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween yesterday!! I thought that I would share some cards that I made at a card class on Wednesday night at a LSS, The Paper Pickle (the instructor, Pauline, is super talented and I like the ideas that she came up with for these cards).

For the first card, we used Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to colour in the image (the image is from Sunshine Designs). We also used some Cuttlebug folders as well as some scalloped Nestabilities on the card. To finish off the card, we did some paper piercing on the burgundy cardstock and added a piece of burgundy ribbon. The idea of the card was to make it more of a Christmas card instead of an autumn card.

For the second card, we masked off the image and used a lot of different Memento inks to get the colours of the sky and ground. We used Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to colour in the image (also from Sunshine Designs). We added Liquid Applique and glitter to create the snow and used pop dots on the bigger Christmas trees to make them stand out more. I also used some pop dots on my sentiment (I think it stands out nicer than to have it just lie flat on the cardstock). Sorry if the colour in the buildings seems smudged...this was only the second time that I've coloured with pencils and gamsol, so I'm still learning.

Thanks for stopping by to check out what I've been making. I'm hoping to get a few cards made this weekend, so I'll post pictures of those as well. Hope everyone has a great Saturday!!
