Jennifer McGuire card class
These are the rest of the items we made at the card class...arent they GREAT!!?????!!!! She is so talented! We used many techniques with these...I will touch on them with each card.
top card: glossy card stock and alcohol inks were used to create the background. The cardstock was ran through a Cuttlebug and then the image was lightly sanded. The button is a clear button but touched on the back with alcohol ink to match the colors!
Tree card: colored pencils were used to color in the tree. The red dots were made by putting the tip of the red pencil down on the cardstock and spinning the cardstock to make perfect little circles! How nice is that!!
Butterfly card: (1st one) Hard to see it but the entire image glistens. We mixed perfect pearls in water in a mini mister and sprayed the stamp after inking it with distress inks. When it dried it is pearlized....VERY pretty!! The background is one stamp stamped with various colors at once. The ribbon is to die for!! I have to have some of it. It is made by Creative Impressions and it is silk ribbon!
Butterfly (2nd): This is heat embossed on sticky backed canvas (I already bought and received this....it is a must have). We frayed the edges, inked it with distress inks and then applied distress stickles on it (the little gold flecks). I love it! Oh, already bought the distress stickles, too.....they are really neat!!!!! Spread them on with your finger and let them dry, you see little flecks of color....they are soooooo cool!!!!
Treat bag: This is so cute. The branch is cut from a Silhouette (yes, now I want one of those...lol). The owl is actually a stamped image we cut out and used the reverse side...wings, too. (The image was stamped twice). I have to draw in his feet...keep forgetting that...lol. Poor owl!
Hope you enjoyed looking half as much as I enjoyed making!!!!!
