I now have had my Cricut for 2 weeks.
With the help of Jennifer Maker's Craftalong Challenge , I have been making a new project every day, learning different techniques and finding out what the machine can do.
Day 12 and 13 involve using vinyl - I only have one small roll of black vinyl and a small roll of release tape in my stash - so I have sort of combined the days.
I used Ike's Witch Silhouette and the star within the Design Space to cut a witch and 5 stars in black vinyl.
I then looked at the canvasses I had to hand and added the images to them.
These had been coloured with acrylics.
As the vinyl is glossy, it was pretty difficult to photograph.
I decided this background was too busy - so this was my next version.
As we have just moved to Australia, the stars are supposed to suggest the Southern Cross.
I happened to look at Ike's Show us Your Pussycats Challenge
I discovered that Ike had a freebie silhouette lion on offer - part of the animal alpha Silhouettes.
Thank you for this,IKE!!
I decided to give this the Cricut treatment - but with black card.
I made this into a card - white card blank, layer of blue card, circle of yellow card (the sun), the lion and a die cut of flowers.
My daughter and I had been playing with alcohol inks on yupo...
I used one of these backgrounds to die cut the floral frieze.
I will link this card to Ike's Show us your Pussycats Challenge #52
Finally - something in everyone's thoughts...
