Hi all. I have a few cards to show you and one for the Imagine That Digi Stamps design team inspiration. The first card is just that. The set is called Chef Freddy. I colored the image with alcohol markers but put him on the inside of the card. For the outside of the card, I cut some circles and framed him so his face showed through the frame. I used some of the designer paper from the set and added a die cut happy birthday and a bow on the top. The sentiment on the inside is from the set.
My next card is an Oriental one that I did with embossing paste and a brass stencil. I used white paste and Inktense blocks to scrape some black and some red color so that I could emboss with 2 different colors. This was one of my first attempts at stencil embossing. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. The Kanji symbol means love. For the background, I did another new technique where I dry embossed the black background with an Oriental design and covered the debossed side with silver Gelato and got the great metal effect. I used red embroidery thread to finish it off.
The last card that I am showcasing is made from a Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) piece that I did. I tangled in the digi image, cut out the larger heart shape and mounted it on a black tile (card stock). I punched the design and added some black paper behind the punched front and the black bow on top. I realized that I have so many Zentangle projects that I really didn't know what to do with so I thought I would make some of them in to cards.
