Funky Moped - My Brothers Card

My Brothers Birthday Card.

I saw this curtesy of Judith Maslen and thought of my brother i traced the bike onto vellum using a silver gel pen filled the tyres and hand grips in with Marvy No. 1 black the red parts with Marvy No. 2 Red with the white it was a white
paint pen. At the moment im thinking of backing it onto a Union Jack.

this is the pattern i traced the "Funky Moped" from.
Using a picture i copied the Union Jack onto a piece of white cardstock. Using Marvy No. 3 Blue & Marvy No.2 Red.
 I glued the picture onto a red card adhered the vellum onto the union jack and finally added happy birthday stick-ons all around the card to hide the doublesided tape which showed through.


The Mask - Finished for my Sister-in-Law

Hello again folks this is the finshed "Mask Card". Excuse my manners but I must also thank Judith Maslen again for one of her patterns. Thank you Judith. After cutting out the mask i ummed & Arhed about what to do next so after awhile i added yellow ribbons some bling in the form of gold flowers some yellow feathers. Using my hot glue gun (ooh i love it) i glued it onto a gold card at a jaunty angle i then made a flower using cream card. i had fun embossing it in copper embossing powder (thats all i had) which turned out quite nice i think added some leaves in brown & cream used "Happy Birthday" stickers bought in Hobbycraft added a gold & vellum butterfly

The making of my sisters card

First thing i did was traced the lady onto vellum using 0.2 Fineline in black. I started by making sure I took my time as i wanted it to be right. coloured the headband and dress strap in "Marvy No.7 Orange" I used a Red Glitter Gel pen for her lips and a light blue for her eye.

 I used "Marvy No. 18 Dark Brown" for her hair.

I used an Orange wax crown and an imbossing tool to give the effect of feathers with a soft orangey look.
i stuck the vellum in a gold card with the oval aperture then i started on the parasol. I seem to have forgotten to take some photos of the parasol. But this is what I did I used the pattern traced it in white pencil I used a multi grid for the pattern. Then using a pricking tool I pricked all around the outside  and used parchment scissors to cut out the parasol. I assembled using double sided tape using wire for the main part wrapped it in white ribbon.

 I lined the card with cream card to cover the vellum attached the sentiment and
added the 2 gems to keep in the orange colour scheme.
Using the Freebie butterfly stencil i cut out 2 butterflies 1 in vellum and 1 in gold card and the spellbinders
 shapabilities Spiral Blossom 1 i cut out of cream card i added som leaves in various shade of cream/gold and
 finally added  a gold bow to the parasol. After sticking everything on this is the finished card.

The mask stage 3

Ok now i have cut it out completely. Doesn't look too bad. Next stage is to mount it onto the card. Watch this space

The mask stage 2

In this stage I outlined in gold gel pen. I followed ish the embossing and pricking patterns I'm not very good with the cutting out yet (come to think of it I'm a bit ok) it's not looking too bad.

The mask

This is the original pattern for the mask. I never followed the instruction (naughty I know) I was only experimenting.
