Christening Card - Monday 14th July 2014

Good Morning Friends,

A quackish post today as I have a big crafting day ahead. Before I start though, I wanted to mention Emergency Crafters to you, as I know some of you have taken part in their challenges in the past. I have been a Design Team member for about 2 years now (it was my first DT) and enjoyed it very much, so I am sad to say that Josie, who runs he challenge has had to take the difficult decision to close it, at least for the foreseeable future.

Some of you may have noticed that the site hasn't really been 'active' for a few months now. Anyway I know we all wish Josie well, I am still in contact with her and  some of the other DT members via Facebook.

Now to today's card: The image is by Mo Manning from Mo's Digital Pencil and I coloured it with my Inktense pencils. I embossed the background using the twisted hearts M-Bossability folder. I then used a mask which was free with a magazine and the new Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture paste in Aurora Sparkle for the next layer.

The card is being personally give and not posted, so I made a wrap - papers are by Pink Petticoat

A short post today, I have been around and hopefully caught up with all your wonderful I'm off to make some Christmas cards....using Sam's new stamps and they are fabulous! Please check back tomorrow for my DT post for Creative Studios!

Love and Hugs,
Carole Z X

  12. Hi Carole,
    What a very beautiful card. I love that image, and it's coloured so well. Fab embossing and that texture paste looks fab too.
    I did come and comment on your workshop on Sunday evening, but when I pressed publish nothing appeared this happened to me a few times that evening. So it must have been a problem with blogger.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

    1. HI Jenny, thank you! Yes I get that problem too...I also keep getting emails telling me my comments have failed, but when I look at the blogs all is fine...very odd! X
