A Two Challenge Card
Today lovely people, I have a card for two of my favourite challenges! Freshly Made Sketches and this is the lovely sketch.
CAS Mix Up where they want to see, stamping, splattering and 'your choice', again, . . . more of that later!
Here is my card . . . explanations below!
First, I took a panel of white card-stock the same size as my base card and partially die-cut the top with a (very old) die from supplies. Then I stamped a flower arrangement in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using platinum embossing powder by WOW. Then, I water-coloured the flowers using my Inktense pencils and a water brush. Next, I splattered it with some red paint on a paintbrush.
When the panel was dry I attached a piece of vellum longer than needed for the card front and folded over the excess and attached that to another panel the same size as a card front, so I had a see-through bit. Next, I adhered a sheet of patterned paper to another panel and sandwiched the whole thing together, so you could see the patterned paper through the vellum, lost yet? . . I am! 😜
To finish, I added a strip of patterned paper that was actually a strip of scrap card-stock covered with some washi, and a stamped sentiment that I mounted with foam tape, adhered a few sequins in matching colours and, of course, the obligatory, lick of Stella on the flowers and vellum panel! Phew!
I do hope that all made a modicum of sense, any questions, don't ask me, ask Jennifer McGuire, who came up with the design some months ago, that I remembered (kind of). 😉
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
