Best Wishes

Hello, hope you are all well…
today I have a few more pictures to show, so I am going to make my “blurb” short.
Claudia_Rosa_best wishes_5
Some of you may have noticed that I do use my Silhouette recently a lot on my cards. This time I used the cutting machine to create a spider web overlay.
Do not get me wrong… if you look at the detailed cuts… there was still a lot of hand detail work involved with my craft knife.

The shape from the Silhouette library was the web frame (circle in the center) I downsized it so it would be the usual size for a 6x6 card plus my matting. Than I used some of the smaller patterned sheets of Basic Grey paper to add some color to the card. Next I used the Grand Spellbinder circles (Cute Stamps and Cards) to cut the paper behind the kids out. I made sure that the bats in the trees to the right top of my circle will show after I add my two images inside. Just a little bit stitching with the sewing machine to set the frame a bit more off against the web was added.

This weeks challenge on Just Magnolia/Just Hanglar is “add a little bit glitter” so I just added some Stickles in Diamond (I like that it shows against the black cardstock in greenish) to the outside perimeters of the spider web.

I colored both of the images on purpose with muted colors. Yes, most of the times I would probably color the girls dress in a different color than the boy’s.
To pick up the colors I first colored the wings in black and than added while the ink is still wet some purple to pick up the shades.

Here is an other detail shot to show the tiny silver dots I added to the ends of the wings and the cute little scary cat charm which I got from my friend Carole. She always finds the cutest charms Smile
