Brrrrrr it's cold our there! Perfect excuse to get cosy and do some crafting, eh?
This weeks blog post features a card from Kerry using the new Posy 2 die that was launched on Create & Craft last week. It was so much fun to be back in the Create and Craft studio, especially with my fellow Brunnie pal Martyn Parker! Shows with him are always a good laugh and even our producer said it was like watching an episode of Peaky Blinders, with our Birmingham accents!
Kerry made this super effective sample using the die and some simple inking techniques, I was desperate to share with you all. The results are just stunning.
How to make the card:
Cut some white card slightly smaller than your card blank
Die cut the Posy 2 die from black card stock
Die cut a circle from a scrap of card, use as a mask for your moon on the white cardstock
Create a background by blending some distress oxide or distress inks from the edges of the card, going lighter into the centre by the moon to give the effect of light
Spritz or splatter the background with a little water and dab off with tissue or kitchen roll
Stamp out a sentiment using Luminosity Embossing Ink onto the background
Add ‘Pure White’ Luminosity powder and heat set
Add some glitter to the moon
Add the die cut as a silhouette over the moon and secure with wet glue
Mount your artwork onto the card blank
Enjoy you super arty skills!
