So this year I decided that I wanted to have a daily post on my blog but was a little concerned as life can sometimes take up a lot of the time that I would have ordinarily dedicated to the blog.
For this reason, and seeing that some of my friends were doing something similar, I thought that I would aim for some little makes, such as Artist Trading Cards.
This post therefore is the first in a 365 blog post series showing off a range of the little critters that I have been making in those little snatched moments of creativity.
This first one is all about friends. I have been very lucky this year to have had some very dear friends stick by my side when things have been a little rocky.
It also ties in one of my other delights in life – CAKE! lol!
The cake was made using a free stamp that I received some time ago with a magazine. I stamped it directly onto the ATC panel. I also stamped a second one onto a spare piece of cardstock and then coloured it using Spectrum Noir pens.
The background was made using Spectrum Noir pens and a little spritzing of felt-tipped pen.
I then layered this onto some black cardstock and again onto the main ATC.
Having done the background I cut out the coloured cake and, using some 3D Glue Gel, positioned it directly on top of the original stamped outline.
The banner was made using a sentiment stamp from the same set that the cake came from.
A little bling (mini gems) to finish and the project was done.
Hope you like this first one – and can visit to see the collection as it grows.
