Happy Birthday Sue
I know that you will all join me in wishing our very dear friend Sue a Very Happy Birthday, I hope you have a lovely day with family down in Devon, hopefully the sun will shine for you, maybe go out for a lovely Devon Cream Tea. Love you lots xxx
This weeks Challenge is something different, I have to thank Michele for the idea, I ended up having a really bad day yesterday with one thing and another and didn't think I was going to get a post up today. I mentioned this Michele and she came up with a solution that I think you will all enjoy!
The card above was made using just one colour (with white card as well). I used the Fresh Fig ink to stamp the patterned paper at the bottom of the card, I pressed the inkpad onto my glass mat and spritzed it with water, I used this to colour my ribbon.
You could use that same method to create a background for your card. Now I had card that matched my ink pad, (one of the benefits of Stampin'Up!). I used that to die cut my butterfly, you could colour some white card with your ink pad to get the same effect.
I don't mind if you use shades of the same colour to make it easier, I'm pretty sure most of us have atleast one piece of card that matches an ink colour, you could use craft card instead of white card, just add another colour in, or go for the monochrome look like Val did yesterday for her Challenge card.
You can design the card layout however you please, or copy my simple layout above.
I think that this is a fun Challenge, that will get your minds buzzing, I will try and add some more examples through this week. Have fun ladies XXX
I have to finish a Wedding card that someone has ordered, it is in Emerald Green and white and I am just having a proper case of crafters block, finding matching card and ribbon was a bit of a pain, but I must get it done today, wish me luck please.
Thanks for all your lovely comments about Matt's sheep, he is having a hard time at the moment and it really cheered him up!
Michele thank you so much for your support yesterday xxx
Enjoy the last day of your long weekend.
Love & hugs to all of you!
