De Craftorij Zomer CHallenge - CZC 2016 - day 46 - 50

Hello everyone,

Another 5 cards done ! Yay... Here they are:

Day 46 - cartoon figure
I found this in a magazine from a gallery. It is a picture of a proper painting. I thought it was perfect for this card. I used some Kraft card stock for the base and clear embossed the flags. I coloured the bottom around the image with brown markers. The sentiment I got of the internet. 

Day 47 - Use a photo... 
I found this photo in an antiques market in Brighton in England. I love rummaging through boxes of photos. Although it is also a little sad that family photos end up there... 
I added her on top of some cambric and a doily on a gelli print. The chipboard was heat embossed with copper embossing powder. I added the flags and stamped the stars on them.. 

Day 48 - big, bigger, biggest
Again a gelli print. I stamped the Stampotique guys on book text and gave them a little colour with pencils. I added them to the card on top of some washi tape. 

Day 49 - emotion
I added the white embossed stamp to the gelli printed card as a base for the stamp to sit on. She was stamped on photo paper with StaZon ink. I cut her out, leaving a small white border around her. She was placed on a 'nest' of black thread and stapled to the card. The sentiment came from the internet and was typed, cut apart and glued on the card. I went around the strips with a black pen. 

Day 50 - washi tape
I covered a card in washi tape. and stamped the stars and circles on it. The stars were white embossed. The black circles were stamped with StaZon. The girl was stamped separately on white card stock, coloured with Copics and cut out. I adhered her to the card. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !!!
