Remember, Remember The 5th Of November


Good evening blogland, followers old and new and friends.  Another Papermill DT project from me and news of this week's offer over at the Papermill.  This week we have Black Buckram 270gm card a pack of 20 sheets for £5.00.  This is a beautiful card with a textured feel, ideal for those bonfire invitations and using as contrast with the other wonderful coloured cards the Papermill stock.

October is coming to an end and November beckons, we have the Guy Fawkes Carnival here in Bridgwater and visitors come from far afield to see the fabulous floats which pass through the town.  With this in mind I decided to make a Guy Fawkes tag using this great black card.


 I cut a tag from the black buckram card using a Sizzix die then added the background using various stencils, glue and very  fine glitter. The Guy Fawkes image and words were printed onto tissue paper and pasted onto the tag.   The word tag was printed onto vellum paper, torn and tattered and covered with distress ink .  The edges of the main tag were coloured with distress paints and the word tag attached to the top with a clip.  A piece of cord from my bits box was tied to the tag, three silver stars and a number 5 were added to finish.


I have been playing around with the make your own calendar from the Papermill and thought the black card would be ideal  for November's page, here it is.





The black buckram card was mounted onto yellow card and the fireworks were drawn using a glue pen and sprinkled with glitter.  The house border was hand drawn and cut out, coloured with Promarkers and mounted on the card.  The rocket was computer generated along with the 5th November tag, these were attached to the card after it was glued in position on the calendar page.

Why not pop over to the Papermill Blog and take a look at the other DT makes for bonfire night.
