Good Morning Ladies,
How are you all doing this week? What have you all been up to, anyone made their Challenge card yet?.
We had a busy morning, I booked a slot at the local Tip (Household Recycling Centre), the slots are hard to get hold of, this one had been booked about 3 weeks, I did manage to get a cancellation for week on Saturday too, today's trip was mostly cardboard, we had a huge collection, but I guess we weren't able to go to tip last year so that hasn't helped. Paul managed to fit loads in, that is the good thing about our car, you can take all of the back seats out which makes loads of space.
I saw this card on Pinterest and loved the subtle stamping effect, the card was designed by Stampin Jack. It's from a few years back, but I actually love this stamp set.
So I took a piece of Pink Frog super smooth, stamped the flower spray a few times around the opposite corners in Grey Granite ink, which makes a really nice change to black. I then used a Clear Wink of Stella as a waterbrush and added some Pool Party ink to the flowers, the wink of stella adds lovely shimmer too. That is the only colour the card needed. I die cut the 'Amazing ' twice and adhered them together, so that the sentiment stood out a bit more. I laid the die cut in position without sticking it down so I could position the 'YOU' stamp. I removed die cut and stamped YOU in Night of Navy ink. I adhered the die cut sentiment and layered the card front first onto a piece of Grey Granite card and then onto Night of Navy card base. To finish the card I popped a Crystal gem into centres of the flowers. I really love the contrast between the Navy and the soft Grey.
Not much on here today, I have a couple of cards to make before weekend.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
