I haven't had the opportunity to join in with the Ismaki Challenge for ages, so after tea tonight I settled down to make a card. There's a fab sketch to follow and an extra option to use purple. As hard as it is to part with the scrummy papers, I used my Basic Grey Wisteria pad again. I think this design is my favourite of the collection - those blooms are so gorgeous!
I also got to use my new Nestie leaves and flowers die to create the layered floral embellishment. I think I'll be using this lots more as I love the way the flower looks. Lucky old me was able to play with another scrummy Hanglar image thanks to my super duper blogging buddy Judy. They are just such gorgeous images and I so wish we could buy the stamps in the UK........ who knows, one day?
Materials: Image - Hanglar Sentiment - Studio G Papers - Basic Grey Wisteria Colouring - Copics Die - Nestie Flower and Leaves Layers Embossing - Cuttlebug Divine Swirls Punch - Martha Stewart Doily Border Embellishments - Ribbon, Pearls and Sentiment Sticker from my stash Accents - White Gel Pen for highlighting, Distress Inks for edging
I've really enjoyed making my card tonight and even managed to catch the light to take my piccie in the garden. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my blog, I really appreciate it ;o)
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!!
