Another month, another freebie with the newsletter from The East Wind, and another challenge. This time the theme is “shine on” with the requirement to include a sun, moon or something shiny.
Inspired by Erica on Instagram, I decided it was time to have a dig through my collections of backgrounds, die-cut pieces and bits of colouring and see if I could match them up and turn them into cards. I’ve seen these piles of odds and ends referred to as UFOs — unfinished objects — but I think Erica’s name for them is much classier: PhDs, or Projects Half Done.
It’s that time of year again, when I have to come up with an idea for cards for twins. I’ve been playing with foil and Minc mist recently, so I thought I’d put the experimenting to good use and create a foil rainbow across the two cards as a background for some Copic colouring.
So my mum called asking me if I could make her a birthday card for her brother, but she had absolutely no suggestions for the design 🤔 It’s tricky enough making cards for men, but when you have no starting point to work from… Anyway, this is what I came up with…
For November’s challenge, Gerda Steiner offered up this little bear with his scarf and mug.
My first “commission”. My mum has a hard time finding appropriate “brother” cards so I offered to make a Christmas card for her. Any excuse to use this adorable Santa again.
