Summer Take a Break

Another insert from Cards made in 2016.

Summer Take a break

I used the Elizabeth Craft stickers in black called Maritime, and put on to glitter foil then on to acetate. I coloured with the Sakura Glace pens. I cut out the glitter foil from around the net and cables of the boat so it remained clear.  I found this lovely page from Kaiser Crafts Sandy Toes collection in the small 61/2″ x 61/2″ pad called Hello Summer.  Perfect for this little boat and helps to make the most serene scene.

Some of the first cards I made in June of 2016, when I started to seriously enjoy this Great Craft.

FishElizabeth Craft Black Stickers ‘Koi fish and Flowers’ stuck onto acetate and coloured with Sakura Glace Pens.  They are then put onto white embossed card with 2mm foam tabs. The white embossed card (Background card) is coloured with a metallic blue rub on.  All layered onto a dark blue card, to frame the finished product.

Fish Happy BirthdayThis card is also made in the same way as the one above but the Blue Fish sticker has been put onto Adhesive Glitter foil first, then applied to the acetate and coloured with the Sakura Glace Pens.  An all occasion sticker is used in the centre for the sentiment.

My first try at colouring with the Sakura Glace Pens on acetate.  I love this technique and you will see more of this on future cards.
