Shout Out to Sheetload & Show Us Your SheetLoad

This is my shout out to sheetload...

Check out the April cover:

Sheetload of Cards publishes a free monthly e-zine with a sketch and very clear cutting diagrams to maximize getting a stash of cards made from just a few sheets of your precious paper. How cool is that? Helps make the most of your time and the latest issue of Sheetload (April'09) is fantastic! Amazing sketch and creations by very talented crafters... you should pop over and have a look at the current issue...

Show Us Your Sheetload.

I just love the latest issue of SheetLoad of Cards and thought I would have a go at the sketch, I made this to enter to win one of two stamp sets from The Greeting Farm... but I notice that the cuttlebug challenges has the same sketch! So up to you which to enter.

I have made just one from the sketch I wanted my card a little bigger but intend to do a sheetload for some other cards I need coming up. So... was feeling in an arty stamping mood and tried stamping my miss Anya slightly differently...

Stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured using distress inks. When they're dry I have ripped the edges to frame her using my little ruler as a guide. Inked with brown tones using blender tool. I have then gone over the outfit with my sparkly stickles and left to dry (far too hard to leave it but the paper does go flat again)

So then the really fun part was squidging my clear embossing ink over the whole image sprinkling with my UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) and heating till molten then quickly sprinkling on some more utee, so completed till I had three layers and a very glassy look. Love how it enhanced the ripped edges! Click images to get a close look! You might be able to see the subtle sparkle!
