Birds & Brusho

Evening all!

I am bit late posting this as it's been a very busy week but I did find some time to squeeze in some crafting when my Making Cards magazine arrived yesterday.



The colours of this cute bird remind of some Brusho backgrounds I made a while ago which I thought would coordinate perfectly.  I added some distress ink to the papers and images so everything toned in.

Supplies used;
Matt Mirror card - Creative Crafting World
Patterned paper and images - Making Cards magazine May issue
Brusho, to create backround.
Tim Holtz Seedless Preserve Distress Ink
Sentiment stamping - Making Cards magazine April issue
Memento Rich Cocoa Ink


Have a great weekend.  Creative Blessings.  x

Santoro Kori Kumi Collection Part 2 - Craft Consortium

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.  Today I'm sharing 3 more makes using the Santoro Kori Kumi range from Craft Consortium, if you missed Monday's post you can catch up here.

This time I'm using, what I'm calling, the "windswept Kori Kumi". 😏  This is just how my hair styles itself on a windy day!


For my first card I have layered just the topper, which I outlined with white marker, on black card then on to marble effect paper and embellished with gems, ribbon and a button.


Supplies used;
Santoro Kori Kumi 3D decoupage - Craft Consortium Ltd
Black cardstock - Anna Marie Designs
Background paper - Docrafts Capsule Liquorice Sherbet
Sharpie White Medium Point marker
Best Wishes ribbon - Dovecraft by Trimcraft
Pink gems- Poundland
Button - stash

My second card uses all the layers of the 3D decoupage and a sheet of the decoupage (decopatch) paper for the background.  I have embellished with a die cut and stamped sentiment and gems.
Supplies used;

I have to admit that I'm not so happy with my last card, this is not the idea I had in my head but such is life!  I used torn strips from the decoupage (decopatch) paper, 3D decoupage without the base layer and added a little sparkle to her pockets.  I have finished the card by embellishing with a balloon stamp and sentiment.
