The second challenge card I have just completed is for Chocolate Baroque.
The colours are a bit out of my comfort zone and my sample has come out a little brighter than I would have liked!
I have only just started doing any challenges and I find that it really helps me to focus on using colours I may not normally use, and actually completing a card. Must be good.
The stamp used for the background is from the Floral Edges set.
I have stamped it all around the edge, to form a frame.
The butterfly and saying are from one of my favourite sets called Patchwork butterfly.
I have used the stamps in this set so often as they are a great size. It also has an oversized butterfly, which is good for home décor items.
Great used with metal too.
Two cards in one day. Whatever next!
Bye for now. Please visit again.
Hello to anyone reading this.
I've been a bit slow in posting anything recently. Seem to have so many things churning around in my mind, so can't concentrate on actually getting anything finished!
But... I have actually managed to do a couple of challenges this month, very unusual for me.
I just hope I get them in before the deadline!
The first is the Crafty Individuals Face Value challenge, and I am submitting the card below.
I think this image is so pretty and it is one of the first stamps I purchased from this company.
I have stamped it first and then embossed it with a Sizzix heart folder, swiped over with Victorian velvet distress ink.
The other embossed panel is a Tim Holtz border, again swiped over with the distress ink, before embossing.
I like the effect this technique gives to the background.
The little flowers are also Crafty Individuals, a freebie I was kindly sent with my last order. They are very pretty and very detailed.
Hope you are having a good day and bye for now.
