Diane Duda - Accordian Card


I just wanted to show you one of the cards that we made last night at my class at Simply Create. I chose to make an accordian card using some of the fabulous Diane Duda images from Sugar Nellie.

One of the main aims of my class is to teach techniques and tips with the prismacolor pencils so I wanted to show that pencils can also give you bright vibrant images as well as softer more muted tones. I showed them how to colour black hair, create the grass effect, create a subtle sky background and create contrast and shading on an image. The ladies there took to it like ducks to water!

Jacqui gave me some of the new MME 'Jack and Jill' papers to work with which are full of bright fun colours and then I followed the tutorial by Inge on the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog to create the accordian card. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps which are available from Quixotic Paperie.

Thanks for stopping by to have a wee look at my blog!

You are always welcome :)
