2Crafty Chipboard Card and a tutorial

Hello! today I'm here with you today to share a tutorial of a double canvas I made using
 the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard.

"Amaze Yourself"

2 Crafty Chipboard used

"Groovy Flowers"
"Amaze Yourself"
"Swirly Heart Background"
"Doily Frames"
"Ornate Dragonfly"

I have been dying to try this out for some time now but I had to find a canvas that had a
 solid back on it so it would attach to another canvas with ease. When I spotted this
little square burlap covered canvas, I knew it would be perfect!

I prepped both the canvas and the chipboard with white gesso and then, as you'll see in
 the video tutorial, I gave them a little coat of paint or some embossing powder depending
 on where they were going to be placed on the canvas's.

My two feature pieces, my title and the ornate dragonfly, were heat embossed
to make them stand out from the crowd.

You can see all the details as it comes together in my tutorial. I also explain some of
 the techniques and talk about how it all came together.
I was really pleased with how it turned out. It's probably one of the "prettiest" things 
I've ever made.

My second project for the month is this little birthday card I made for 
my dad's up coming birthday.

2Crafty Products used:

"Clock Faces"
"6x6 Card Pack Happy Birthday"
"Giant Gears"

I have to be honest, cards really scare me. I take twice as long to create them than I do a
layout. I think I over analyse them! So this time around I was determined not to do this.
 I started with some patterned paper and layered as I went. No hovering, no procrastinating,
 I just stuck it down! Low and behold it worked! The little clock face is simply coloured
with some vintage photo distress ink.
 I had to add a big gear, it's a boy card, what's a boy card without a giant gear right? I
popped some white embossing powder onto it and heat embossed it and then added
 some black water colour paint over the top.
Finally I added my sentiment which of course says "Happy Birthday" and of course
 it's not straight!! I really don't do straight very well.

But other than the slight lean of the sentiment, I'm pretty happy with my card. I added a 
couple of real feathers and some drops of black ink to make it appear that they are a quill.
 I think dad will really like it.

Well that's me for another month. Thank you for popping in and don't forget,
