Bowing out.

This is my last post as a Guest Designer for Imagine That digis by Kris. I have loved being a small part of her team and, no doubt, her designs will continue to pop up on my blog now and then. For my final sample I have gone for a very simple card.

Materials used: SAM_2650(watermarked)
Imagine That digis by Kris – Psalm 91
Imagine That digis by Kris – Thoughts and Prayers
X-Press It blending card
Copic multiliner black pen
A5 white card blank
printer paper

The image and the sentiment are printed on the X-Press It card and coloured with Copics. I drew in the frame freehand with the black pen then used a grey Copic to put in a shadow to make it look raised.

Before sticking my topper to the front of the card I ran a black Copic around the edges. The topper had been trimmed slightly smaller than the base card so that the black inking made a frame for it.

I used the pre coloured image and a sentiment from the Thoughts and Prayers set to make an insert.

Now the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed the slight error! I got so carried away colouring that I forgot to look at the precoloured image for reference which means the image on the insert is different from that on the front!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
