Entry #61 - 72 - NCM 2010 : Designing My Own Cardstock

These were part of my entry during The National Craft Month 2010 and I made these designs 22 March 2010.

I had a hard time finding the right cardstock for an 18yr old client but as I've said I was lucky to find a pack of cardstock from a craft store that is a copy of one of her gown's fabric. It dawned on me that in many cases we can actually design our own cardstock using stamps, stencils, free-hand drawing / doodling or left-over cuts especially from Cricut play =)

Armed with Zig colored pens given to me by a dear fellow crafter ..... some acrylic paints .... stamps ... rollers .... stencils I got free ... and of course imagination, I started designing some 12 x 12 kuretake cardstocks by

1.  coloring after using stencils with the use of craft chalks, markers
2.  freehand drawing then colored with markers or watercolors
3.  just doodling around with flowers and swirls
4.  played with different kinds of roller brushes.
5.  Since I saved most of my cricut cuts, I decided to use those, too.
6.  And of coures the best part is using stamps =)

Maybe to some my cardstocks are too plain but rest assured when I plan to make a LO, the cardstocks will be filled with stuffs. So for now it's juts as is and will check some pictures that I have that suits each cardstock.
