BLOG HOP - Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of our

Round The World with CRI-Kits Blog Hop


Today brings the turn of Tereesa

to post her clue for the grand prize

and show us her project

Yesterdays layouts and card by Tracey were amazing


My project with the CRI-Kits gel pens today is Disney.....

The pens are great for the facial features

of the characters, which, as you know,

can be a nightmare to cut, and to piece together.....

I have gone with Cinderella from the

Happily Ever After cartridge....

Here is the Cricut in action, again.....

I love the detail captured by the pens

- this time the Black pen from the Metallic collection.....

I thought I would use the image for a

four year olds birthday card, however,

I think the background paper I went with is a

bit too old for a kiddie - too late.....

You can see from the Cricut photo,

I drew the whole character on the flesh coloured card,

however, when I layered the coloured pieces

onto the flesh card, it looked extremely odd....

These characters really need to be against

a black bacground....

So, I cut out the face and pieced it along with the rest.....

Needs a bit of fine tuning me thinks,

and her hands and fingers don't look right either.....

I will have to try this technique again,

however, you get the idea,

and her face does look stunning.....

I'm still wondering whether I should colour

her eyes and lips, like you would if she were stamped

- what do you think?

The number 4 is cut from the

Tie The Knot cartridge and layered with foam....

A wee bit of ribbon and a few pearls.....

I want to get these Disney Carts, but am nervous about how hard I've heard it is. But I think you did a great job!

Jessica Wekenman said...

I think this is absolutely beautiful! I know she will love it!

Crafty Sue said...

Wonderful card and although I think it looks great as is, I would agree that coloring the eyes and lips would make it even better!Thanks for sharing.

This is a beautiful card which I am sure any 4 year old would love to receive. Love the drawn face and yes I think I would colour her eyes and lips too.

Another wonderful project. Some amazing things can be done with these gel pens!

Donna said...

Great idea to use the pens to make the faces. Those tiny intricate cuts can be a pain to get down. I like the idea to color her eyes and lips.

Thanks for sharing,

I love these pens and I love Disney so I love this gorgeous creation! I love the 4, I haven't used my Tie The Knot Cartridge much but I going now to get it out!

Lainey said...

Gosh, I hate doing the piecing on these Disney cuts and with a 6 yr old DD and 4 yr niece, I am forever being asked to make these... the gel pens would be ideal!
