The challenge this week is to make a card using the colours of your country's flag. Well, the red white and blue of the British flag was calling to me so I've snuck in a quick one! Come and see:
The idea was to mount a red floral panel onto the tone-on-tone Patterns designer paper in Pacific Blue, then have that on a white card base. I used the fabulous 2 step stamping set Greenhouse Garden for the flowers and got quite carried away!
Aren't the flowers gorgeous? These 2 step sets have solid images and line images to go with them which you stamp over the top using a stamp-a-majig. I usually stamp the line image in a darker shade of the solid colour and it really gives them a 3D feel. The background is sponged in and I added blue leaves - a little crazy I know, but fabric designers do this all the time!
I always like to show you the sentiment but this one turned out rather dark and I have a lowering suspicion that I didn't clean the stamp properly when I last used it... naughty Vicky!
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Greenhouse Garden, Baby Blossoms, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Patterns designer paper (brights), markers, stamp-a-majig
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.
It was so quiet in our house yesterday. I think the family were suffering from car-lag! Or perhaps they just needed a little time alone after being together for a week - there's nowhere to be alone in a caravan. Which reminds me of the ad for the film Alien all that time ago: 'In space no-one can hear you scream'. Well, in a caravan everyone can!
Thank you for dropping in today. I'm really hoping to be able to catch up with you soon!
