Etikett: Paper Piecing

Caroline on Echo Park

The card has a joy-fold and are for my sister in law which is waiting her second child.

I have been working out from this weeks Mojo Monday’s layout and all patterned papers are from Echo Park’s collection A walk in the Park. The image is Kraftin Kimmie’s Caroline and i have colored her skin with copic and the hair with promarker and the dress have been paper piced with the Echo park-papers, I have done the same with the bottles. The bottles are mounted on an oval from Gina K’s Fanciful Labels and the greeting is from the same set. The borders are from Nellie Snellen and i dry embossed the yellow patterned paper with my Victorian embossingfolder from Provocraft. I have distressed all the papers with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmelade  (and the green paper is distressed with Peeled Paint. The flowers are Ek Sucsess’s Flower Power and i did embellished them with a small pearl. I kept the pearls going in Caroline’s hair and dress also. The scalloped circle containing the greeting is made with nestabilities and Mavy Uchida scalloped punch.

I’m not entirely happy with the inside, as an after thought i think i should have dressed the background in a patterned paper. I was to greedy about the papers when i first thought abut it but i have to admit that it doesn’t look as goos like this.









Challanges I’m entering with this card:

Andreas Magnolia

Nu har jag även gjort ett kort inför Andreas födelsedag nästa vecka. Jag har enbart använt Magnolias egna papper och motivet är Tilda in Spring Rain som är paper piecad med samma popcorn-papper som kortet har som bakgrund. Jag har med en ljusgrå promarker försökt att skapa lite skuggor. Gummistövlar och paraply är även täckt med glossy Accent och fickan är täckt med crackle accent för att skapa en liten kontrast. Bollarna som är strödda lite överallt skall föreställa både popcorn och snö. Runt Tilda har jag distressat med Antique Linnen. Hälsningen Grattis är gjort med hjälp av bokstavspärlor från Panduro. Jag gillar verkligen hur jackan ser ut med popcorn-pappret, jag tror jag måste paper pieca lite mer. På insidan har jag fortsatt med samma papper och lämnat ett lite utrymme för en hälsning. Jag har försökt att censurera bort min hälsning och det är därför som färgerna ser lite konstiga ut i mittdelen.

The second card of today is for my small friends birthday next week. I have used Magnolia papers and the stamp Tilda in Spring rain. I have been  paper piecing the cloth of Tilda and I also tried doing shadown with a grey promarker. The wellis and the umbrella is covered with glossy accent and the pocket is covered with crackle accent to both bind and make diffrence between the diffrent clothpieces. The cottonballs alla over the card is trying to symbolize both popcorn and snow. The Image shape is nestabilities and it have been distressed with Antique Linnen. The sentiment is letter beads from Panduro. On the insida i have keept going with the same papers and just tried to frame the greeting. I have censured out mu greeting and that why the colors in the middlepart looks a bit off.
