meningitis campaign

Jak Heath is raising money for the Meningitis Search4avaccine CVampaign, in memory of her greatnephew Layton who died recently from this disease. These digi images have been donated by Mo Manning and Jim Harker - check out Jak's blog for details.

These cards are very simple, as I haven't had much time for crafting lately - both images are coloured with Inktense pencils, and the backing papers are from Artylicious. It may not show on the scan, but there are glitter spots around the snowman, especially in his broom.

not a card

The bag is for this week's Corrosive challenge - no cards. This was a very hurried entry for a WI competition - the first one ( a patchwork grungepaper one based on a Craft Stamper article) went sadly wrong when I tried to sew it together - having tried to get away with not using the Tim Holtz ruler for lining up the holes, I decided it really would have been an essential! This last-minute one was a small tote shape cut out of brown card, with acetate panels added - the handles have come out rather too large for the size of the bag, but had to be big enough to get a hand in! The acetate was stamped with an old leaf stamp from Rubber Stampede, then coloured with alcohol inks - not sure now whether I used clear glaze as a medium or Klear floor polish - and yellow tissue paper.
