It's Monday again and I'm back at home after a wonderful week in Cyprus to celebrate my husband's birthday. We've got to the stage where we don't need any more 'stuff', so instead of exchanging presents, we go on a little break or sometimes a holiday.
Back in my craft room this weekend I've been making a card for my DT day at Vera Lane Studio. Today sees the release of a new digi set called Matryoshka and here is the card I made:
There are two different Matryoshka in the set and a sentiment the says Happy Birthday. I resized one of the Matryoshka so that I had a set of three. I coloured them with Copic markers and used a white Posca paint pen for highlights and a Gold Posca pen to add some details. I fussy cut them, leaving a thin white border. The background was made using Distress Oxides in Fossilised Amber, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans on a gelli plate. I spritzed the inks and placed a stencil over one corner. The print that I used was actually the clean off print from the back of the stencil. I blended some Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans inks around the edges of the print and placed a torn strip of black and white washi tape along the bottom to ground my set of matryoshka. The Matryoshka were glued directly onto the background, starting with the smallest, so that the bigger ones would be in front. The sentiment was cut into strips, inked and glued directly onto the background.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
Thanks for stopping by today.
