Little Tangles Challenge #37 - Peek a Boo!

16 May 2014




There were some fantastic cards last week for the peach & mint challenge, so many stunning creations.  This week it is acetate time.  I decided to use the acetate to make a shaker card, I'm a little behind on this trend, it's my first shaker card, and it shows!  I should have stuck to a square window or something like that but I went with the circle and had to hand cut it out around the flowers as they are on the same layer, not adhered separately.  The more I tried to 'fix' my circle the more I saw issues, so I had to stop or I wouldn't have had a card left, lol.  

I did some water colouring on the panel behind the acetate, it looked better on the larger piece I painted as you don't really get the effect in the smaller circle but I still think it's pretty.  And of course I used some of the beautiful Neat and Tangled sequins to shake around.  I thought the flowers looked a bit  bare left plain so I added a bit of colour to them but had to be careful as it's normal card stock they are on and I was using Inktense pencils on them.  I should have used my Prisma colour pencils in hindsight I think that would have looked better, I forget about them, they are sadly under used.

Well enough moaning about my card, I still like it, it's just not finished off the way I would have liked it.

I must say I seem to use the Fresh Blooms set a lot, I can't help it, I love it!


Hello

Hope to see your creations over on the Little Tangles Challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by





Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Pink & Pretty

10 May 2014

Just popping in quickly to post a card I made for the latest Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration pic is beautiful.  I drew inspiration from the pink flowers and the gold to make my card.

Hello




I am also going to put this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Spring Flowers.

Happy Mothers Day to all the mums in my part of the world celebrating Mother's Day tomorrow.  Hope you have a wonderful day!



As well as products below, I used Silhouette cut files for the Hello & the Vase.



Congratulations - Little Tangles Challenge #36

It's time to get out your Peach and Mint coloured supplies and play along with the latest Little Tangles Challenge by Neat and Tangled stamps.

For my card I white heat embossed the flower image from Fresh Blooms onto vellum and coloured the back of the vellum using a Copic marker.  It all looks a bit messy, but I put the flower images onto a die cut, that was on top of cotton, which was on top of some embossing paste, lol. I was trying a bit of laying ;)  I also added a few embossed leaf images from the same set.

I love the 'solid' sentiment which is from the set everyday labels.  I added the white panel to some patterned paper and the Bazzil black card base to finish it off.
