It's time for another challenge over at ABC Challenge and this time we want to see 'N' is for Nesties (or another make) ! The sponsor for this challenge is Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the prize is a £10 voucher to spend in her online store. We will also be changing the challenge to weekly and have 2 teams to inpsire you, so watch out for another challenge next week. We have another sketch for you too, but this is optional.
For my card I used a combination of Katzelkraft, Crafty Individuals and Stampin' Up stamps. I stamped the background using a Crafty Individuals stamp and used Brushed Corduroy DI around the edge. I stamped the horizontal panel using the Bella Toile background stamp by Stampin' Up using Plum Archival ink then gave it the DI treatment.
I used a new technique (to me) on the embossed panel. I was browsing aroung the internet and came across a fab video by Tim Holtz ( is he good or what ! ) The technique is to stamp on the inside of your embossing folder, I used the Bella Toile stamp, and then emboss your card. It gives a really good effect of the stamped image being the background and the raised parts are then rubbed with DI. I can see me doing this alot !
The gorgeous main image and the text are from Katzelkraft, which I've cut out with Nesties and also treated them to some DI. Bit of stitching and a bow and there you have it !
I hope you get chance to join us this week !
