OCL – Clearly Creative


This is my second post for the day, scroll down for my Paper Pretties Blog Hop post.

Time for another challenge over at The Lounge. This week it is Clean and Simple and be CLEARLY Creative, meaning we had to have something clear on our cards.


I pulled out an acetate card that I had from Creative Cuts & More and used Shower of Blossoms from Our Craft Lounge.  This was a challenge for me as I’m not that great with clear cards but I love how this one turned out.

I paper pieced her jacket using DCWV The Far East mat stack. Used a gold Spica pen for parts of her jacket. Colored the rest of the image with copics. Added some Sugar Sparkly Fluff on the bunnies’ tails. Wanted my primas to match so colored white ones blue as I didn’t have any blue primas to match. Also had to color the small one brown with copic.


Pulled out Eiei Hello for the fence behind the girl, colored with copics and cut it out completely to attach with glue dots. Stamped Fancy Fringe in black around the edge of the acetate. Sets are also from Our Craft Lounge. Girl image is attached with Helmar Liquid Glue Dots to give her more dimension. The green and blue design paper are also from DCWV The Far East matstack. The blue is attached to the inside of the card to give the layer look.
