Well the first of June means two things, we are nearly half way through the year eek! Can’t believe it! And the other thing it is my Mum’s Birthday …. Happy June and Happy Birthday Mum (who funnily enough is called June ;)) As you read this we are on a trip to Country Baskets in Gateshead to be inspired by the fabulous demonstrations of Jonathan Moseley and to peruse the crafty, craftable goodies on offer ;)
In my absence I thought I might share this
My Mum’s birthday card … and a tutorial on how I made it using Craft Artist 2 Professional and Daisy Trail digi kits… warning this ended up a bit of a mammoth post LOL.
Another overlay was added next (3rd up from the bottom of the embellie section) building up layers and textures! And this time I went to blend modes and chose erase.
As I wanted to use the background paper on the front and base of my card I copied the page by lifting the black arrow at the bottom and clicking copy page.
I then added the dragonfly (10th image down) and enlarged it.
I added the green material from the Timeless 1 kit behind the Dragonfly (send back with arrange tab) and while the material was still selected picked up the erase tool and erased around the edge of the image (remember it has to be the material that is selected to do this!) I didn’t go too close and wasn’t too precise.
Once I had removed all the material and while it was still selected I made it more transparent, I liked the watercolour effect it gave doing this. I then drew an imaginary box around the dragonfly and the material and grouped them so they would move as one.
I then grouped both items to move as one
…. Cropping the material to the edges and adding some distress overlays to it from the Timeless 1 stamp kit.
Phew! That’s it ;) I hope it all makes sense and maybe inspires you to have a go at some hybrid crafting! Thanks for letting me share my project with you and also a little insight into my design process with Craft Artist 2 Professional.
I will love you and leave you now and wish you a Happy June once more, I’ll be back soon, until then, as everHappy Crafting
