Perhaps her moody face would not encourage you to 'Enjoy The Moment' but she is a Zetti stamp after all and you know what they are like.
The card was made from a 5 x 5 inch plain white card blank. I have covered the card with a couple of pieces of printed paper. The striped bit on the left has a flock finish.
Onto this I have stuck some paper which has been diecut with a frame in the middle, made from more patterned paper.
The central plate was stamped in black Memento ink and selectively coloured with Marvey alcohol ink pens. Black faux gems were adhered to the corners of the frame and it was mounted on foam pads in the middle.
Last but not least was the sentiment which again was stamped in Memento ink on white card, edged and trimmed out before mounting on more foam pads.
Another Christmas card I have made. The base card is made from pealised cream card. I have matted a piece of striped paper onto this as the background.
The trees and sentiment plate (PaperArtsy) were stamped in black Versafine on some plain white card and trimmed out. The trees were stuck in place onto the striped paper mat and a few hills drawn with a fine Micron pen to ground the trees. These were infilled in places with a gold metallic pen.
The wordplate was embellished with some Stickles glitter glue and applied as shown on foam pads. This one can be entered into the Less is More Challenge for week 198 whose theme is 'More than one Tree'.
Here is a simple collaged card I have made. I used a square Kraft card as the base and collaged on a few elements as shown.
I started with a square of printed text paper. The red chevron band was stamped in red dye ink and trimmed. The stamped image is one from Zetti and she was stamped in Memento black ink and coloured with Copic alcohol ink markers with her eyes highlighted with a white Posca pen. She was diecut into a circle and matted on another larger diecut circle in pink.
Finishing touches were to add a paper flower with a little pearl centre and the word plate which has been stamped, trimmed and mounted on foam pads.
Maybe she looks a bit stern but I do love the image !
