Happy Sunday! After a very grey and chilly day yesterday, today we have glorious sunshine here in the northwest. Sadly my neck and shoulders are very sore after my trip out yesterday, so I can't go out and enjoy it as much as I'd like.
When I returned home yesterday a new set of dies that I'd purchased from one of the Chinese sellers on eBay for a huge £2.96 was waiting on my doormat. Immediately I knew what to make with one of my new purchases, a piece of ninja film strip with the ninja jumping out of it.
I die cut the film strip out of a scrap of black card, and then cut it again out of a scrap of white card so I could slot the centre of the frames back in. I put a stripe of spectrum noir sparkle pen across the top of each piece and used a wet paint brush to blend it out. I stamped a sentiment from the ninja set on one of them once dry. I then glued it all onto a 6x6 card base.
I stamped in versafine 2 of the same ninjas from the set and one of one of the others, and coloured their faces, hands and sashes with zig clean colour pens. I then cut them out using the matching dies. My ninjas were a bit too big for the frames and so I snipped them down to fit, before gluing them on. The full ninja I added with foam tape to emphasise him jumping out.
I stamped some of the tiny throwing star thingys using my finger tip as the stamp block in the corners and coloured them in with a spectrum noir sparkle pen. Finally, I added a doodled border to finish.
I've added the second pic in the hope that it picks up some of the sparkle, but also to show you the other dies that were included in the film strip set. Very impressed with them and they only took about 2 weeks to arrive. As I used bits of white and black card from the bit box, I'm taking this card over to the Snippets Playground where hopefully Parsnip's figured out how to set up the hammocks!
