Card Patterns - Challenge 47



Hello Blogger's,

Today's card is one I made for this weeks challenge over at Card Patterns Blog, challenge 47. Nina Brackett is sponsoring this weeks challenge with a copy of her pretty set 'Lovely Shelf'.

My card uses one of the corner images from the new Stamp TV set 'Picture It', the sentiment is from the same set. Pretty image, don't you think?

The image was stamped in SU Kiwi Kiss and coloured with Copic markers. A clear glitter pen was used to add some sparkle to the centre of the flowers. Memento Tuxedo Black was used for the sentiment.

Spellbinder dies were used to cut the image and the sentiment and both were embossed then sponged whilst still in the die. I used Tim Holtz distress ink in antique linen to sponge.
The base card is from Gina K Designs with a layer of American Crafts card over. This was embossed with Swiss dots through the Cuttlebug first.

DP used is from Basic Grey Origins Paper Pad. I cut two blocks with the smallest label 1 and a strip for the side which was punched with a SU lace punch. Some very fine brown ricrac was added along the edge of the dp and to finish I've added the bright yellow self adhesive gems from Kaisercraft.

Tuesday was an exciting day for me it started with my new Stamp TV set and a few other bits I ordered arriving early. I'd just finished cutting out two sets of stamps and the door bell rang with my New Light Tent........yeah. Walshie got fed up listening to me complain about trying to get pictures so bought me this new 'toy'. Pressure's on now though my pics better be good..........
