One Colour card
Good Morning Ladies,
We had every kind of weather in one day yesterday, we woke up to beautiful Sunshine streaming through the windows, which was lovely, although it was still quite windy and very cold, the ski's greyed over after lunch though and we then had sleet, snow and hale stones all in the space of an hour or so! We wanted to get out of the house so we went to the Outlet Centre where they have a Farmers Market, there weren't many stalls though, the only thing we bought was some Lemon Meringue Fudge! (not the healthy shopping I had planned).
Today's card was the result of me having a 'play' with Distress Oxide inks, trying to see how it embosses etc and as you would expect it works however you try and use it.
The whole card was made with Whisper White card and distress ink.
I started off by stamping the background using the 'Dear Doily' stampin'up Stamp set, I love that pretty doily stamp, the Distress Oxide that I used is Picked Raspberry.
Next I used my Blending Tool to cover a piece of card that I used to die cut the back of the Doily die, I then stamped those grasses onto the coloured piece in versamark and added white embossing powder and heat set and then I used the matching die to cut them out.
I stamped the sentiment and embossed that at die cut with a scalloped circle and layered on top of the Doily. The final part was to ink around of a piece of card to create and matching coloured matt for layering up the card.
I put it all together using a Whisper White card base, the layer with the inked edges, my doily background, I then added foam pads to the back of the doily die cut and placed it in the bottom corner and popped the three grasses under the doily to one side.
I hope you like my card, it's amazing what you can achieve with nothing but white card and I ink pad!!
Nothing much happening here today, I am exhausted both mentally and physically, I have another blood test at 11am, I think that the rest of the day will be me resting. So please feel free to flood my inbox with your cards incase I don't feel up to making any for a few days, although I am wanting to go and sit in my craft room and play.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
