40th Birthday Order

Well the next three cards are for an order. I was asked to make two brother and one uncle cards. I know that the gentleman in question is interested in DIY and cycling. I could not find an image which I was happy with for the cycling so I made one with the theme of DIY and the other two I was able to use my imagination.

Well the DIY one I have used my Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit stamp and also the cd rom for the backing papers and. The card is A4 in size and has an a5 opening section on the front which holds the insert. I have had my first go at paper piecing for the rabbit and also used watercolour pencils and markers for the colouring. I have highlighted the 'paint' areas on the toppers with diamond glaze to make them appear wet. The 40 topper was made by colouring chipboard toppers with markers and then using embossing powders to give a gloss effect.

This card I have used the Joanna Sheen Jayne Netley Mayhew cd rom. This card is an a4 double pop out card.

And this card was made again using the Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit Cd rom. This card is 8x8" in size. It has an A5 opening section for the verse. I have decoupaged the cake on the topper.

I have also used the diamond glaze on the icing areas of the cake as well as the badger's nose to give a glossy effect.
