Ivy

Hello again everyone, Jennifer here once again.   

Hope you are all having a good day.   The card I have for you today I made for Sue and Harvey in November 2012 ready for the January 2013 QVC show.   This time I thought I would use some alcohol inks which have been tucked away in my craft draw and haven't seen the light of day for some time lols !   OK let's make a start.



The base card was made from white card and onto this I matted a piece of cerise shiny card, then some silver onto the cerise card, each time leaving narrow borders showing.

I took a piece of the shiny silver card cut slightly smaller than the silver and coloured it with the alcohol inks and the blender until I was happy with the results.

I then put the ivy stencil on top and spread the Sparkle Medium over the stencil.   When it was dry I matted this onto the base card.

Die-cut and punch out tree and flowers using white paper and cerise card.   Punch out a circle from white paper and glue to the top right for the sun.

Surround the sun with white paper rays left over after punching out the cornflowers.

There we are, card finished.   This is a very quick and easy card to make, especially if you do not have a great deal of time.

See you soon.   
Until then, happy crafting
Hugs
