CCM #183 Go Green

As St. Patrick’s Day is a couple of weeks away we would love to see your ‘green’ creations for Crafty Cardmakers.

I don’t do St. Patrick’s Day myself so I have gone down the route of making something mostly green instead.

183 Go Green

I started with a topper from one of the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations paper pads that I have. They are a fabulous way to make a relatively quick card. I added glamour dust to all the edges of the faux layers and also to the peacock’s tail, the speckled part of his body and those little quirky feathers on top of his head.

I made the card base myself with a Tonic die which I think is called Bow-wave from Centura Pearl Hint of Gold card.

The sentiment tag comes from the same paper pad and I trimmed it out with the luggage and tags die that matches most of the Heartfelt pads.

DV #150 Add Some Metal

Our challenge today over at Dream Valley is to add some metal. We are sponsored by Starz Stampz.

DV 150 Add Metal

My metal is in the centre behind my image and started off life as a can of Diet Coke

I carefully cut off the top and bottom of the can. At this stage it is VERY easy to cut yourself so be careful. I then flattened it out under some heavy weights. I actually have a pile of this stuff, cut and flattened and ready for use because I find it takes quite a while to get the curve out of the can.

I diecut an oval to match the coloured matting and then put it through the BigShot with an embossing folder, and finally coloured it with alcohol inks.

My image is from Kenny K, Veruca Venom, and I coloured her skin with copics and the rest of her with polychromos pencils. I also added the clear sakura jelly roll pen to her boots to make them look like patent leather.

My patterned paper is the Viola set from WRMK, the bow is from Memory Box and the plain matting papers were from my stash, along with the heart brad and gold tinted centura pearl card I used to create the card base.
