Good Morning Friends,
Well I'm pleased to report that yesterday, I didn't do too badly! I got the DT card made for Emergency Crafters - watch for new challenge next week! That card is doubling for a commissioned card, I got a few little ideas ready to try out on Friday (my next day off0 for our next workshop and I made my Sunday Stampers project for this week!
This week Hels Sherdian gave us the topic of PAPER; Hels also provided a great tutorial for a Tatteed Rose made from the Alterations Tattered Florals die, which I was itching to try..excellent! Paper flowers :)
So I came up with this little card, which can also double as a wall hanger. The base colour really doesn't show in the photos, but I started with matt gold card with which I created a blank using Spellbinders Grand Labels 23. I used a piece the same card with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Flora and again cut this with Labels 23. I then adhered this to the front of the card to give more weight. I saved a strip to cut for the hanger.
The flowers are all made with the Tattered Florals die, you can see Hels' tutorial for the Tattered Rose here
The paper I used is by Teresa Collins. I stamped the sentiment on the label using a stamp from Sam Poole's Art Houses set and the butterfly is from a Pilkington set by Stamps Away - another Ally Pally purchase. I stamped both with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and heat embossed clear.
The edges of the flowers, label and butterfly were all distressed with the same ink.
Thanks for stopping by,
