Thank goodness there's only one more day to go until the week end......it's been a very long week ! The card I'm sharing with you is one I've made for a lady at work who left today. I wanted it to be a bit quirky so it would suit her !
I started by making the background, which was inpsired by the latest Craft Stamper magazine. Take a plastic bag and 2 or 3 different coloured inks, I used Distress Inks, and put your hand in the bag and scrunch it up, dab on to the ink then onto the card ! Simple ! I then stamped on to it using stamps from different Tim Holtz sets. I blended Pan Pastels around the edge and I sealed it with a spray of hairspray. The stitching around the edge is faux. I made a master sheet using a text stamp from a Wendy Vecchi set and Pan Pastels. The vertical panel is cut from the sheet and then I then used a Martha Stewart border punch. The main image is a PaperArtsy stamp and I've stamped it onto a piece from the master sheet.
The sentiment is from the Stempelglede stamp set called Just a Note and the metal frame is one I recycled from a card I was given. The flower is made using the Tattered Flowers Tim Holtz die and the centre flower is cut from Crinoline and then I've blended Wild Honey DI over it and stamped the Wendy Vecchi text stamp on it and used a black corduroy brad in the centre. The swirl is made using the Elegant Flourishes die and then I've blended Wild Honey and Vintage Photo DI over it.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
