Here is the link to my Website: http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/cotswoldcrafter/
Well I am not sure what happened yesterday, my 'mojo' just up and left and I sat in the craft room twiddling my fingers! So I thought I would go and have a look at the Global Design Team Challenge for this week and it just so happens it was a 'Colour Challenge' so I thought I would have a go.
The GDP #161 challenge for this week is to make a card using the Colours :
So I decided to use the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the 'Resist Technique' to create todays card.
I set the stamp in my Stamperatus Stamp Tool and stamped one side of my piece of Whisper White card, then rotated the card and stamped again using Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder, heat set and then placed on my glass mat ready to blend the three colours of ink onto the card. I always find it easier to hold the paper at the angle you are want your ink to lie.
After adding the ink I buffed over the embossing to bring the white shine back, now I couldn't decide how to add my sentiment, then I had a look at this weeks TicTacToe Challenge and saw Vellum, so I cut a piece of vellum the same size as my card front, I then planned where I wanted my sentiment to be and placed the vellum back in the Stamperatus, lined up my sentiment stamp and stamped it and added White Embossing Powder and heat set. I then placed the vellum back onto my card front and creased the vellum roughly where I wanted the tears to be and tore roughly a long those line, for a less formal look, I applied Old Olive ink to one side of the vellum and Crushed Curry on the other.
I attached the vellum to the front of my card with tiny spots of glue placed under the stamped areas of the sentiment and then in one or two spots where I was going to place the sequins.
I scattered some sequins over the front of the card to finish.
Now it just so happens that this card fits with our TicTacToe Challenge too, using categories:
Vellum/Sequins/Texture (vellum and embossing)
I am hoping that the crafting comes a little easier today, as I have a lot to get on with!
I hope you are all in full crafty swing, making your challenge cards, I think I am going to just blindly pick a stamp and colours when I get crafty block from now on and see if that works.
I hope you all have an amazing day,
Love and hugs to all,
