Making A Point - Jane Clark

Hi everyone, Jane here again with some cards that I hope will inspire you.
 I have a thing about arrows at the moment, I just love them and when
 I saw that 2Crafty had some I just had to have a play!!
These cute little motifs are perfect to get your point across, get it?
Bad humour I know!
Anyway... the first card ‘You & Me’,  I glued a selection of the Asst Arrows
 on a square piece of chipboard, then I painted three coats of white
 acyclic paint over the top, let it dry between each application and use a thin paint
 brush so the paint doesn’t accumulate in the corners or you will lose the details of the arrows.
I lightly sand over the top with a file board to give a lovely soft distressed look,
 I sanded the edges of the paper and card to match.

Next is the "Love You" Card
I just love the shape of this Bubble Tree with it’s big curvy foliage!
 I coloured the trunk and branches with Distress Marker frayed burlap and
covered the top with green dotted paper. I tinted an Asst Arrow with red ink
 and a Card Sentiments word ‘You’ with a white ink pad.
I hope you like my cards and get lots of tips to get your point across (sorry another bad joke).
 I wonder what my next obsession will be!
Happy creating everyone,
 love Jane.
