Today I have a card which I'm entering into the latest Cardvaarks Challenge..... I followed the first of two sketches over there and managed to play with my new Hero Arts Clings Floral stamp. This definitely isn't my usual style and the same applies to the card I'll be uploading tomorrow..... just playing around and having a go at something a bit different really, inspired by all the wonderful creations I come across in blogland.
I had fun cutting out different layers on my stamp and then lifting them to give some depth to the flower. The leaves and dragonfly are Magnolia Doo Hickey dies and the papers are Basic Grey, a mix of Phoebe and Dasher. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the leaf design on the white card. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on.
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Sentimental Sundays - Recipe (one solid paper, two patterned papers, 3 embellishment, plus sentiment)
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!!
