First Cards Of The Year

I have quite a few birthday cards to make this month - the first three cards that I'm sharing with you were very simple to make.  I used a Chapel Road Art Stamp for the main image.


The image is stamped onto white card and matted onto black card and then onto a white card blank.  I scribbled some lines on  the edges and added some pearls.


After stamping I masked the face and sponged distress ink over the image then matted it onto black card then onto a kraft card blank. I removed the mask and added some gems and scribbled some lines on the edges.


After stamping I masked the face and sprayed with a mica spray then I matted it onto some purple mirri card. Th card blank was sprayed with the mica spray. I added pearls and a ribbon.

  4. Wow Hazel, these are fab. The very slight changes in each card with colour makes them look totally different. They would look great up on a wall together framed.
    Happy new year, Julie x
