More cards using Tiddly Inks Digitals - single vase image.

Here are some more cards that I done this morning with the same image as used in my last post - available from Tiddly Inks Digitals.

Here is a 6x6 card with the image matted on red mirri board, then on a lovely green paper with the edges punched with the Martha Stewart loops border punch. Red ribbon and bow round bottom, and faux red heartshape gems add finishing touches.

Next is a 6x6 square card with the image coloured up in purple tones.  The image is matted on a piece of corrugated cardstock which I think I got from the Papermill shop ages ago.  I distressed the edges of the image with Versamagic chalk ink in petunia.  The ribbon is some that the lovely Gez sent to me a short while ago.  4 small gems finish off each corner.


Next is a smaller card - A6, coloured in blue tones.  Image is edged with versamagic dewdrop chalk ink in Key Lime.  Blue card used for matting is some that I filed away yesterday when I sorted all my scrap paper out into colour schemes.  I finished the bottom of the blue paper off with 3 faux gems in a lovely blue colour.  Rik rak ribbon is from stash.

The final card is also A6 in size and is simply the image matted on green pearl cardstock also from my scraps stash.  I swept Aspen Mist versamagic dewdrop chalk ink around the image before matting.  No gems, ribbon or bling.  The image speaks for itself.


All images have been printed on 300gsm cardstock and coloured with promarkers, with highlights done using Sakura glaze pens.

I am really pleased with how all these cards turned out using this image.

All the matting on the cards in this post and the last, have been used from my newly sorted scraps stash - even some of the base cards - infact, only the two 6x6 cards in this post have been made from new base card stock. 

Its amazing how easy it is to find the right colour from my scraps without having to cut into a new piece of coloured cardstock unecessarily - and its also easy to file any new scraps that are worth saving.

My newly sorted scraps are filed in 2 x lever arch files - in separate poly pockets for each colour.  The first file is sorted in order of the rainbow song - R,Y,P,G,P,O,B (this is the order we used to sing it anyway).  I might change it yet!!!  Then the second one houses the neutral colours: black, brown, grey, white, cream and metallics.

Jobs a good 'un!!!
