THURSDAY-- Getting Crickywith K. Andrews

 The beginning of the card
 The two pieces cut from the imagine

I started working on this a few days ago, it is for the getting Cricky with K. Andrews  challenge (click here), but I really didn't know what I wanted to do with it. It is using the gel pens with the Chomas gel pen holders in the cricut. I used Cindy Loo and I made the blue image and that was it, it just sat there for a few days. Well, today my neighbor e-mailed me that his girlfriends father passed away  Tuesday and the funeral is today.  I thought this would make a beautiful sympathy card. I colored in the negative spaces with a blue metallic pen. I printed two pieces of paper from the Imagine cart. one 4" and one 4.2. Using an A2 vintage cream card stock and some ribbon I put it together.  It is interesting what gets the creative juices going.  I had to cut the gel pen image by hand -- Now I know why I love my cricut machines.

  8. Fabulous job with the pens. I have just drawn an intricate shape with cricut pens and didn't know how to make it look more bold. Perfect! Chloe - Getting Cricky Guest Designer
