I was truly honoured to be asked to take part in this week's Creative Card Crew Challenge as a guest designer and have really enjoyed making my card. The girls have come up with some beautiful examples!
The theme this week is adding texture so I set to work embossing and distressing and also used some black raffia ribbon which is highly textured. The challenge is being sponsored this week by Stamping Bella and it was no trouble for me to use one of their images as I have just bought quite a few stamps from the new Ketto range. These are really funky designs and I think they encourage the use of quite bold colours! At last I got to play with my Basic Grey Ambrosia papers - these are very unusual in terms of the colour combos and are perfect for a funky card!
Materials: Image - Stamping Bella Ketto Sentiment - Cuttlekids Alphabet Papers - Basic Grey Ambrosia Embossing - Cuttlebug Folder Circles Dies - Spellbinder Butterflies Punch - Leone Em Stamen Flowers - Prima Colouring - Polychromatic Pencils Embellishments - Raffia Ribbon, Pins and Brads from my stash
I hope you can hop over and have a go at this week's challenge and look forward to seeing your entries if you do!
Don't forget about this week's candy giveaway over at Colour Create either will you!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
