Cairns Show Entries. . .

I did another The Open Sea card for the Cairns Show which was similar to the one that I did for the Atherton Show (a few different layers, embellishments and colours) but I will upload photos of it in a few days.

Today I am going to share another of my entries, which was a bit different from what I usually do. Check it out:
The base card for this is Very Vanilla which is an unusual selection you may think but I needed to use the First Edition Speciality Paper which has vanilla as its colour base. I also used the Red Glimmer Paper because the card needed something to give it a bling factor.  The letters making up the words are rub-ons and the pencil is also a rub-on (which I shortened to fit the page because the mounting card at the front is on 14cm x 14 cm!

I was inspired to make the apple after seeing some of Lydia Fiedler's creations. It is made using the Heart Punch.  Simply punch out about 25-30 punch shapes, fold them in half and stick them together.  I daubed the colour on every part of the shape using Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade ink and a dauber.  On some pages I inked into the page on others I simply left it on the outside edge.

The stalk and leaf is made using the Bird Builder Punch. The stalk is the branch part of the punch punched out in Early Espresso and the leaf is the bird wing from the punch done in the First Edition Specialty Paper and daubed in Lucky Limeade. 

A little bit different
