Hello Sailor & Singing in the rain

Good morning everyone, well the pin ups have certainly been busy and I am not surprised as they really do make a fabulous project come to life.Today I am sharing Hello Sailor and singing in the rain.
The card is 8x8 with mat and layers using navy craft perfect and some woodgrain paper.
The ring was created using the basic layering circles and cutting the largest circle first and then putting the smaller circle in the centre to make the ring this was done in white card stock and again in cornflower blue craft perfect card you then cut the cornflower blue ring into 4 sections free hand with scissors ,two of these sections are glued to the white ring using wet using Nuvo bakers twine wrap each section where there is a join of the card and  stick down on the reverse with a little hot glue.
Hello Sailor is cut in white for the backing and then the detail die is cut in grey craft perfect and then paper pieced in navy and red chilli craft perfect ,her face and hair are coloured with the Nuvo Alcohol pens and then she is placed onto the ring the ring is placed onto the card with 3D foam pads the hello sailor sentiment has been made up using the same colours as your lady and then the card is finished with placing 3 white Crystal drops to the ring each side and then red Crystal drops to the opposite corner of your card.

Singing in the rain what a fabulous character and so iconic,the card base is cut from black 300gsm using the bowscale die set and just adding layers to the card in red chilli craft perfect Bright White craft perfect and Black craft perfect really frames the character and makes it pop with colour.
The Kraft card to look like sand was torn across the top from a scrap of card then cut the bottom edge with the same base die set so you have the same finish following through your card being that layer I cut a pale sky blue layer card from my stash.
The character was then die cut onto white card for the backing and then the detail cut with black craft perfect stuck down with Nuvo deluxe wet glue then the character was coloured using the Nuvo Alcohol pens and added  shade here and there and blending the colours out,the card was then finished off by adding the matching sentiment and adding  the rain drops in blue and then going over the top of the sentiment and train drops with the shimmer Aqua flow pen.

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family.
