Today I'm showing you a card I made for this week's Simon Says Challenge which has a 'wings' theme. I've used a fabulous image designed by Tracey Coates for The Stampman. I'm a real fan of these stamps and might just be buying some more soon. This one is my absolute fave and I think I'll be using it alot more...... I can even see it making a fabulous Christmas card with lots of snowflakes and sparkle in her hair! Here's a close up of the image to show you the extra dimension I created by stamping out extra parts of the image...... and you can also see that I added some pink pearl gems and gold liquid pearls all over. The papers are Basic Grey and the flowers are Prima Hydrangeas. Rather than colouring the image I just distressed it all over with a Tim Holtz pad and spritzed with some pale gold glimmer mist.
I'm quite satisfied with this card as I think my mojo went walkabout earlier this week and one or two creations have ended up in the bin! Sometimes you just need to take a day out and then you feel refreshed.
I'm working today so I must fly, hope to catch up with you all a bit later ;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!!
