Little Hanglar boy


Hi everyone, here's a card for A Spoon full of sugar where the challenge is 'a card for a child', Everybody Art Challenge and a colour challenge of blue and brown and Papertake Weekly where there's a great sketch by Dawny which I love if only I could work out how to do those inverted corners! If anyone can point me in the right direction I'll be grateful. I ended up hand cutting them and they're bigger than I would have liked although I do quite like the effect. I tried using a circle punch but that wouldn't work when part of it was off the paper! Back to the card, I used a very precious Hangler image (Sandra x), marker coloured it and sponged the edges. Added a rub on sentiment on a nestie cut circle and mounted over the background of I think, Doodlebug paper and a blue card blank. Doodled with a white gel pen and a blue marker to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Hiya, this is fab. I have the same problem!!! I think there is a punch you can get although I just cut a circle into quarters and use them. I'm just finishing off my card I'll pop it on later and you will see what I mean!

Hi Chris, awesome card, love how you have coloured it with the markers. The image is fab, I wish we could get hold these stamps, their gorgeous, fingers crossed someone in the UK will start stocking them soon lol! I know what you mean about the corners too, I've been delaying my card cos not sure how to do it, think it may be a case of drawing round something lol! :0)

don't know if this would work but you could use a circle punch just to half way of the circle if you know what I mean or am I talking nonsense.

Phree said...

Gorgeous card Chris, and the punch you are looking for to do those corners is called a "ticket punch" - I know Stampin' Up make one, but not sure if it's in the UK catalogue.
