Happy Sunday Everyone how’s your weekend going. We have Birthday celebrations under way as its Amy’s Birthday on Tuesday I can’t believe how fast the time has gone 25 years ago she was a little bundle of joy and now she has grown into a beautiful young woman.
Anyway I have a card to share to today. I don’t know if you remember (those that follow me on FB) I did a WIP of this guy a few weeks ago, I was asked what I what going to do with it once it was complete would I be making it into a Birthday card. I said more than likely yes so someone said could I have it for someone I know. (No pressure then to make a spot on card)
Anyway this is what I came up with the card is 8x8” and the papers are from Pixel scrapper and have been distressed and inked with DI. I added some cheese cloth to give some texture.
The image was coloured with polychromo pencils, then I used some pale greys to create the background I was so nervous not to cock the background up after all that colouring (Don’t know why but I really love colouring this chappy)
The scroll opens up and has a spell on it I made it but printing off the spell then aging the paper I got a skewer stick and cut lengths off to make the handles (or whatever you call then) then added some craft wire to the ends and then painted with gold/bronze ink , I glued the paper in place then rolled it down, I add some thread to the back so that when it is fully rolled it can be tied (but can still be opened).
Then I made the book I got a cover that looked old and printed this off along with a back piece then printed a couple of spells to go in the centre. I aged the pages with Distress inks and then cut out loads of pages sticking them together but leaving the middle pages open then glued into the cover.
Finally it was the magic potion I got a glass bottle added some glossy accent and alcohol inks and glitter and swirled around the bottle let it dry for a bit (it doesn’t dry completely so gives the effect that there is more in than there actually is) and added a tag to the neck .
Last but least I made the insert in my usual way unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the insert as it was on my old PC and I couldn’t retrieve it L. But you have seen how I make my inserts loads of times.
And there you have it I do hope you like it and I will see you very soon with my Birthday card for Amy J
