Two cards today, and like many of my cards just going to squeak
it in to a couple of challenges that are on.
the inspiration for this card is:
Isn't this collection stunning, so many ideas.
This first card was done by gold embossing on white cardstock. This beautiful design is an Altenew stamp and I loved it when it first came out and still do. It has such a wonderful look to it. I then did blending using Carved Pumpkin; Ripe Persimmon and Abandoned Coral,the lightest being the carved pumpkin and finished by going over the abandoned coral with the ripe persimmon so it blended in better. I do love Distress Inks.
Look at that colour, so yummy, finished it off with some gems that I placed over the gold embossed dots and stamped 'celebrate' in black. Finished and happy.
Then I sat there and blended another couple of cards same colour and then I sidetracked to rainbows and boy it can be hard to stay on track sometimes. Of course then I had to scrub my fingers that still now look like I have taken up smoking big time and have nicotine embedded in my skin. Gross I know but thats the colour scheme on my hands at the moment and felt I should share.
Next is a birthday card.
My inspiration for this card
This is done by Jenni Murray for Muse Card Challenge.
I just recently got the present die I have used but it was an up pile rather than an along pile.Took my inspiration from the pile of presents; die cut; lots of colours. Thank you so much Jenni for your wonderful inspiration.
I die cut this present pile twice, once on gold mirror card and once on watercolour paper. I kept the watercolour piece all together as one piece so I could colour with my zigs using a darker colour at the bottom and pulling it up and out with a lighter version of the same colour.
I then glued the outline to my cardbase. I have been adding lots of wee little dots of glossy accents for my glue and letting it sit for a couple of minutes before adding to the card. I find it easier to re-adjust and don't end up with glue smears everywhere.
Once the gold layer was set I added more glossy accent dots within the die outline so I could glue the watercoloured sections in. I finished it off by adding the gold hearts onto of the watercoloured hearts and stamped my sentiment ' hooray IT'S YOUR DAY'
Challenges I would like to enter them in:
