Set of 3 Cards for 2Crafty Chipboard {using the July Prima BAP Sketch}

Hello again!  Finally some CARDS from me!!  Yes pick yourself up from the floor
 & face it - cards - yup!  They really are here!!  And I made a set of them too!!!
  Using a sketch - the Prima BAP to be exact...

Gorgeous isn't it?  Kasia Krzyminska is such a great Polish talent!!

Let's take a closer peek at them in the order they were made.  

They all feature clippings of 2Crafty Chipboard leaves, 
of which they have a great variety to choose from.

Additionally they use Prima Free Spirit paper that I have grunged up with mists, 
modelling paste & a brick-wall mask then added a Prima flower, bling & brad
 & a couple of Maya Road decorative stick pins & a Basic Grey sentiment..

On card no. 2 I used the lovely Dandelion chipboard pieces, which come 3 in a set.

I clustered the smaller one with a Basic Grey heart, Ingvild Bolme (for Prima) 
light-bulb, some old cotton lace, Prima bling, flower & brads., all either inked or gessoed.

For my last card I like how the Free Spirit patterned paper is more visible
 in the background.  I have used one of the Ornate Hearts here from 2Crafty
 Chipboard, as well as some Prima text packaging {can you spot it?}, a Prima 
paperclip, brad & crochet icon, plus some gauze & tulle, & of course a Prima flower!

All my chipboard pieces were embossed.  It is a really effective way of dressing
 up  chipboard.  It always looks so good & if it feels too clean & bright you can
 always tone it down with either black or white acrylic paint or gesso.
