Little Snowman

October 22, 2009


Hello everyone! I hope you have been enjoying this autumn days.
I've been very busy for preparations of my exhibition and housekeeping recently. But I made 2 cards yesterday since I thought it was necessary to take a break. :):)

1枚目のカードは、今週のCrazy 4 Challenges(スケッチチャレンジ)で作りました。これには、何の特別なテクニックも使ってませ~ん(て、いつものことか??)・笑

The 1st card is for this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges which is sketch challenge (C4C7). This card was completed without any particular technique (as usual??). lol!!

雪だるまは、自作のデジタルイメージです。時間の節約のために、デジタルイメージを使いました。背景に捺した雪の結晶は、Hero Artsのものです。スケッチに沿って、ミシンでステッチをして、グログランリボンと小さなジェムをつけました。

The little snowman is a digi image which was drawn by myself. The reason why I used a digi image is to save time. The snowflakes that have been stamped onto background are from Hero Arts. I followed the sketch and added some stitching with sewing machine, some stitched grosgrain ribbon, a bow and several tiny gems.

イメージは、1枚目のカードと同じものです。スケッチは、Mojo Mondayからのもの(Mojo 109)を使いました。メインのパネルとセンチメントを捺したパネルの縁は、アンティークリネンのインクをうっすらとスポンジでつけました。これらを重ねて、ミシンで縫って、リボン、メタルフラワー、パールをつけて出来上がりです♪

The 2nd card is easy to make too!!
The image is the same one as the 1st card. This card was used the sketch from Mojo Monday (Mojo 109). The edges of the main panel and the sentiment panel were slightly sponged with Antique Linen ink (Distress Ink). I matted and layered them, and sewed with sewing machine. I added some ribbon, a bow, a metal flower and some pearls to finish the card.


Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy stamping!! :)
