February cards by Guest Designer Jane Clark

Hi everyone, Jane here with two cards to share!

First up I have used 2Crafty
  Elsie's Dress Form 
 Mini Tags, 
Gears and a Mini Ruler 
 to create this card.
I coated the top intricate layer of the dress form with Brilliance moonlight white ink
 and the lower section with Distress Ink frayed burlap, I love using ink
 to colour the fine details of this chipboard piece as it gives a smooth
 unclogged coating. I covered the base of the dress form with
 BasicGrey BP&J 6x6 papers then glued them together with PVA glue.
 I coloured a mini tag with white ink and sponge the edges with burlap then stamped
 a sentiment on it. These tags are so cute and are the perfect size for cards!

For the gears I coloured them with frayed burlap ink then I added
 Distress Embossing Powder vintage photo on top to give them a more
 rustic look. The ruler has been inked with burlap as well then diluted
 with water and dried to give a great weathered look.

For my second card I wanted to do something completely different
 and decided on something bright and colourful. I coloured a
 Mini Bicycle, 
 Doily Frames 
  from the "birthday sentiments pack" with Prisma coloured pencils,
 these coated the chipboard pieces brilliantly!!

  I added Glossy Accents to the bike then layered the pieces on a
 paper doily and pretty papers. I just love
 how rich and vibrants the colours are!!
Thanks for looking and don't forget to let me know what you think!
Happy Creating,
