A Card Making Journey – Graciellie Design New Release

Hello Crafty People!

Do you ever have those crafty ‘journeys’ where you start a project; thinking that you know where it’s going, but then end up at a completely different place with very little conscious knowledge of how you got there?

Yeah, that was me with this card! 😂

I started by designing some card front in Silhouette Studio but when I printed them I couldn’t use any of them because there were smears of toner right down them! (My printer isn’t working right currently and I am waiting on HP to sort it out.)

So, I had this sentiment, surrounded by enough clean space to make it a small card panel so I grabbed a few random supplies and this card just sort of fell out of me, without much conscious thought!

I used some Heffy Doodle tape to mask off areas and create stripes, then I used blender brushes to add Distress Ink, keeping the colours separate using the masks. I used Peacock Feathers and Ripe Persimmon.

The panel was a little too slim for an a2 card, so I added a strip of black cardstock to one side.

One of the cards I designed on my laptop was a slimline with a strip of flowers running the length of it, and I managed to salvage some of the flowers from it.

I just used a Copic cool grey 1 marker to add a little shade to the flowers; I wanted to have white flowers but it’s important to add very light shading which is what will bring the flowers to life. I also added colour to the flower centres, leaves and wooden heart, then I fussy cut them and added to my card with foam squares.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, if you’re new here then I hope that you will consider subscribing.
