My papercraft and card making projects

cupid blue!

all night i had a 'blue-for-boys' version of this card in my head so i just finished it off
the base [both cards] is cut from tim's valise die in mount board, as is the cupid.  i will probably use this more often as it is a good thickness for diecuts and card bases [and very cheap on ebay!!]
i used blue shades of porftfolio pastels, heat set then used a dots mask and sprayed ppearls in green.  again i randomly stamped a heart from tim's valentine set in stream adirondack.
the cupid was also coloured with pastels then crackle added then denim stains over it when dry.  it still needed something so i used interference blue p pearl on the top to make it pop.
the same sentiment [my favourite] i spritzed with bronze p pearl before edging in blue stain.

the postman just delivered some yummy parcels [i'm such a shopaholic online!] so right now i have a pan of embossing powders trying to make some flowers from a demo i saw by tammy tutterow ... lets hope it works!!  great to have a day off!!

  1. Wow it's just as great in blue. I know what you mean about shopping online. It's just so easy to see something used in someones project and go buy it there and then haha. Hope you've enjoyed your day off :) Px
