Good Morning, pretty busy week end. In the garden for most of it so we're looking quite tidy. Wonder of wonders we got some rain late on Sunday ....not nearly enough but it was good to see. Start of another week and I actually got to make this card for the Potluck Friday challenge on STV. It's Lee's challenge this week and she calls it "one plus one" that's one colour (as many shades as you like) plus one neutral. Now, in case you didn't know this I'll own up.... I love designer paper ! I'm challenging myself to try to use less for a while....oh I shake just thinking about it. I didn't even open the drawer that holds my dp when I sat down for this card I had an idea in mind after seeing a card made by the very talented Kathy. Go take a look, think you'll see what I mean.
- Stamp: Wreath of Wishes GKD.
- Ink: VersaMark and American Craft Zing white opaque embossing powder.
- Card: GKD Pure Luxury heavyweight pure white, American Crafts Aqua and for the white flower petals 120grm computer paper.
- Embellishments: Kaisercraft self adhesive pearls.
The base card is layered with aqua card that has been embossed using Cuttlebug Swiss dots.
The image and sentiment were stamped onto Aqua card with VersaMark and embossed with White Opaque finish embossing powder. I used a Spellbinders circle die for the image and also to cut a scalloped circle in white. After attaching the Aqua circle to the white scalloped circle I pierced around each scallop before attaching to the background with foam tabs.
I punched both sides of a strip of white card using my SU lace border punch. Three Aqua square dies were cut using Cuttlebug's Vintage Die set and attached to the middle of the white lace strip. The flower petals were punched using EK Success Retro flower punch medium and small, assembled with a small pearl in the centre then added to the centre of each square with double sided tape.
I added the two larger pearls on top and bottom left side to finish off.
So no dp in sight and I was quite happy with this one finished - hope you like it.
Thanks for dropping by.....
Till next time,
