SLIMLINE AND MASCULINE..


Hello everyone..

Hope you are all safe and well in this worrying time..
Have you jumped on the band wagon yet and started your slimline cards?

I never thought I would, but gave it a go and really liked them, the postage is great as they a slim, my squares ones are very expensive to post..so here are some progress pictures and a card..

First off my Dina Wakely sprays arrived, my second order, who knows where the first order is, but I'm loving playing with these ones.. and made some glossy fun backgrounds...



  Added white ink circles with toilet rolls, textures paste, stamps,and splatters..they dry very fast too...


Die cut my HELLO letters out 5 times and glued together in black card stock then splattered them with white ink...


Die cut the chicken wire and saved all those silver shapes that fell out..


For my next project..


Made the inside sort of grungy by swiping my ink pad across..


Added the chicken wire which cut twice and joined together to stretch across the card...


Add my HELLO and a few cogs, wooden ones that I painted and inked..



Little black gems scattered around...


Then added a Birthday sentiment that I stamped and gold embossed...

So there we go, I LOVE making male cards and my stash is getting bigger and bigger..

Thanks so much for stopping by  and I will see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx
