I have news to share! I am incredibly honored to have been asked to design for Royal Inspirations SVG. Retta is a lovely lady who designs fabulous files. Click the link to check out her wide variety of files.
Here are my first two projects:
I used the Mums file for this card. I love flowers, and this mum with its multiple layers is so much fun to work with. I cut all of the flower elements from white cardstock, and inked them with Distress Inks. I color-blocked a background using some papers from my scrap pile, and added a bit of lacy border. I will add the sentiment at a later date. (when I make cards for nonspecific occasions, I tuck a piece of matching paper inside, so that I can complete the card with a sentiment without taking time to match papers. )
The Gerber Daisy file quickly became a favorite. I used only 3 of the many layers for this card, and again inked them with Distress Inks. I dry embossed them for some fun texture. I absolutely love the detail on these leaves, and the way the frilly edges took the ink. I tried out a new technique with the Dragonfly file*. I used contact paper as a resist for more Distress Ink. I used a variety of light blue inks on the dragonfly base. I cut the detailed top layer from clear Contact paper, and inked ove all with a brown ink. I spritzed with water and wiped the ink off the Contact paper. I layered the elements with a lacy border strip and a background paper. Again, I will add the sentiment when I am ready to use the card.
A huge thanks to Retta for asking me to design for her company! I am so very excited about this opportunity. Look out for another project soon.
