Gatefold Card


Here is a gatefold card I made recently. The background card was made from a piece of gold metallic effect card folded into the required format. The decorated panel of mountboard was made using oil pastels which were applied in yellow,orange and light brown using my finger to blend. This was then overstamped with a Celtic Knot Stamp from Tanda Stamps in black Stazon. Gold Lumiere paint was stencilled through sequin waste around the edge of the card in a random fashion and allowed to dry. I then used Versamark ink and a random dot stamp to stamp over the gold painted areas finally applying pearl brown EP and heat embossing with a heat gun. The panel was edged with gold pen . I applied two strips of brown 1/4inch satin ribbon with double sided tape vertically to the centre of each side of the card and and adhered the finished panel to the left front of the gatefold with double sided tape. The card is held closed with gold braided cord tied in a bow.

Multi-media Canvas


I have been experimenting with various multi-media materials over the past few weeks and this is the first of my canvasses. It's only small, 7 inches x 5 inches but contains a number of hand made embellishments. The paints used for the background are all Stewart Gill Colourise in various colours and applied freehand by brush. The beads are all handmade as are the wrapped chenille pipecleaners. Other iridescent and interference paints are used to highlight areas and some stamping has been accomplished with Jacquard Lumiere metallic paints also.
