Just a corner?

Hello again!  Here are 2 more of my cards from last months Clarity show on Hochanda, this time focusing on this gorgeous holly and star corner which comes in 2 sizes.

I made the first in a traditional vintage style, stamping in black archival and colouring with distress markers.  To complete the vintage look, I brushed antique linen distress ink round the edges.  Simply matted and layered to finish.

This second one has a more modern, funky feel.  I made another deluxe, exclusive piece of equipment to help with the placing of the corner and get a neat circle in the middle.  This one took a few practice runs on copy paper to get the positioning right.  All stamping in black archival on watercolour card and the stars masked off with masking fluid, brushos sprinkled on and spritzed with water, and some colour added to the borders with spectrum noir pencils.  A little bit of red stickles added to highlight the holly berries, then simply matted and layered to finish.

Which one's your favourite?  I'd love to know what you think.  Till next time.  Xxx 


  1. I love them both Barbara, but I have to say I'm always drawn to anything that has Brushos or Color Bursts on it, so for me, the second one's my fave!
    Hope all's well with you.....Bet the show will be great on the 25th :-) xxx

  2. Love what you have done with both of these cards xxx

  3. Love both of these Barbara - might have to pinch your idea on the first card. I suppose I am a traditionalist really, although both are gorgeous xx
