BLOG HOP - Day 3

Good Morning again from




Perth Western Australia.....





It is now Day 3 of our



Round the World with CRI-Kits Blog Hop.....






Today is the turn of
Diane at Capadia Designs


to post her clue....











So, check in at Capadia Designs,



collect your clue for the BIG prize,



leave a comment for her blog prize,



and check out her wonderful design.....










I have created another card (!!!)



using the CRI-Kits gel pens.....










Using one of the gorgeous designs from



the mini cartridge - Summer In Paris.....






The designs on this cart are just screaming



to be drawn with the pens.....







I have drawn the design at 4" using the



purple pen from the Metallic collection.....










'bon voyage' has been cut at 1.5" from the




Beyond Birthdays cartridge.....








*******





Below you can see two images I have



drawn with the Cricut.....




One with the Gypsy and one with the



Cricut alone.....




Before you scroll down,




can you guess which is which.....
















The one on the left is with the Gypsy!!!!!






Two things to notice here....






1 - the staccato effect the Gypsy image has.



The image from the Cricut alone is much smoother.....



I know which one I prefer.....





So, for those of you without a Gypsy,



no problem when it comes to the pens.....







I won't be drawing any images via the Gypsy again.....




2 - the image from the Gypsy is slightly off centre.....




Go back up to the full image drawings and


note towards the top of the balloon.....




Definitely not centered.....





Interesting.....





*****








(I must learn to do links)


to be in with a chance




of winning a set of the CRI-Kits pens on my blog.....




My clue is also at that post.....





And make sure you're collecting all the



clues from Mandy as well.....








Hugs




Jane

Now I just need to win the pens and I'll have a beautiful balloon, lol. Thanks for the tip about the Gypsy. I just got mine and it's good to know the pens don't do too well. Thanks again!

Thanks for the information. The card looks great.

Crafty Sue said...

Wow, didn't think there would be a difference with the gypsy, but the right one is so much better. TFS

It's always fun to see someone else's creations, and I really like yours. :)

Very interesting the difference between those two pieces. I don't have a gypsy, but I do have SCAL2 and love that. Thanks for this insight. I love what you have done with this card!

I don't have a Gypsy either, but I have SCAL2 and Design Studio. Was thinking of getting a Gypsy! Love the card and the balloon.
