For a boy and for a girl

November 30, 2009


最初のカードは、Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challengeからのスケッチ(MTSC 49)を使いました。イメージは、自作の新しいスタンプです。油性色鉛筆とぼかしペンを使って塗りました。メインのパネルと背景のパネルの縁は、ディストレスインクをうっすらとスポンジでつけてあります。ミシンでステッチをして、メタルブラッド、メタルボタン、麻ひもをつけました。

Happy Monday everyone!
I have 2 cards to show you today. I made these cards day before yesterday, but I had no time to upload them till now.

The 1st card was used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge(MTSC 49). The image is a new stamp which was hand-carved by myself. I colored him with Holbein Artist Colored Pencils and Meltz Pen. The all edges of the focal panel and the back panel was slightly sponged with Distress Inks. I did stitching with sewing machine, and added some metal brads, a metal button and some linen twine.


I'm entering this card to these challenges.
Crazy 4 Challenges #13--- Punch Happy
Cute Crad Tursday #88 --- to make a card/project for the younger boys


When I finished this card, I was in the mood to make another card that is for a girl. So I decided to carve a new stamp and to make a card with it!

このカードで使ったのは、過去のMojo Mondayブログからのスケッチ(MOJO109)です。このイメージも油性色鉛筆とぼかし液を使って塗りました。スカロップサークルはネスタビリティで、サークルはNTサークルカッターでカットしました。ミシンでステッチをして、仕上げにパール、レース、リボンをつけました。

The dog has changed his clothes?! lol!
The sketch I used on this card is from the past Mojo Monday blog(MOJO109). She was colored with Holbein Artist Colored Pencils and Meltz pen,too. The scalloped circle was cut out with Nestabilities and the circles were cut out with NT Circle Cutter. I did stitching with sewing machine, and added some pearls, lace and a bow to finish the card.
I hope you like both cards!

Thank you for stopping by today.
