CCT is one year old this week, so they're having a big celebration! I've been away for a few days over the weekend so I almost missed it - hence the quick post in the morning before leaving for work!
The theme this week is a fab sketch, which I really enjoyed working with. Actually I scribbled it down on a piece of paper and looking at it now I don't think I've got it quite right, but I did my best so I hope it qualifies!!
The card is bit different for me - I have used my brand new Penny Black stamp "blush", which I have coloured using Marvey brushstroke pens to create a watercolour effect. I also lightly sponged the edges of the tag with pink ink and edged with silver, though the photo doesn't show it very well. The sentiment is also a new stamp by Great Impressions (I bought it while I was away from a fab little shop called Horseshoe Crafts); papers are by Craft Creations; Coredinations cardstock is embossed with Cuttelbug Swiss Dots and sanded lightly; flowers by Prima; ribbon, gems, brad and spacer from my stash.
I hope the generally floral theme of this card also makes it a good candidate for this week's ABC Challenge which isflowers- actually most of my cards would qualify for this is some way shape or form cos I love flowers, but it has been quite a while since I have used a flower for the main image, and even longer since I did a brushstroke flower.
I would also like to enter this card for the Artygirlz challenge - stamping, and the this week's MTTC challenge #53 - nature.
Gotta dash to get ready for work - hope everyone is having a good week.
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
