Thanks a Bunch....


Hello,
Hope you had a good week end.
The long week end here in Sydney is over and it rained all three days!! Great weather for card making ... I managed to make six cards, which is a lot for me.
Today's card uses 'With This Ring' and the sentiment from 'Home Tweet Home' both by Rupa Shevde for GKD. If you recognise the roses, I used the same image in one of the two cards I posted over the week end. I love them and coloured two images at the same time.
I'm nervous about using my red Copics though, they're not very forgiving and I don't have enough lighter shades to build on. So, I've used coloured pencils with baby oil (mineral spirits) for the reds/pinks here, Copics for the lemons and green.

  • Stamps: With This Ring and Home Tweet Home (Sentiment) by Rupa Shevde for GKD.
  • Card: Bazzill baby pink, A5 White Card 250grm by Romanprint, DP scraps from my scrap box.
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Martha Stewart Hibiscus.
  • Embellishments: Kaisercraft self adhesive pearls in hot pink and gold embroidery thread by DMC.
I've machine stitched around the baby pink base card and also hand stitched the gold thread holding the flowers, The circles and ticket were cut using Spellbinder dies I also used small punches to shape the ticket. Both the Roses and the ticket were attached with foam tabs, but I used a thicker one for the roses to pop it up a bit higher.

This card is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge which they call 'Thanks a Bunch' and it also fits the bill for a second challenge this week over at Crazy 4 Challenges challenge no 5 which is to use some stitching.

Thanks for dropping by, hope your week gets off to a good start,
Till next time..............
