I hope everyone's had a good Saturday! I had a very easy relaxing day after a very busy one yesterday - had a hair cut and a bit of retail therapy this afternoon, then tonight cooked a lovely meal and kicked back with a large glass of white in front of Strictly - I'm so glad Phil's still in!!
This is a card I made a few weeks back for a challenge on the Hero Arts blog but forgot to post on here - the challenge was to make a card using a technique that was featured on the Hero blog. I chose an emboss resist technique using acrylic paint daubers as featured by the wonderful Jennifer McGuire.
Stamps - Dots and Flowers (Hero)/Butterfly (Hero)
Ink - Red (Colorbox chalk)/Versamark/Distress Ink
Card -Kraft/Vintage Cream/October Afternoon DP Other - Clear e.p/sewing machine/linen thread/corner rounder punch/pearls/Snow White Acrylic Paint Dauber (Ranger)
I stamped the background with Versamark, embossed with clear embossing powder then sponged white acrylic paint over the top, wiping it off to create this background - I love this effect, and think it looks great on the kraft. Must use this technique more often!
Over on A Passion for Papertrey I just posted this card (along with all the details):
It was near impossible to take a good photo of this card because it was stamped with silver metallic ink - it was a commission for a Diamond Anniversary card for a friend. That's 60 years of marriage - wowzers!!! I chose Papertrey's Damask Design set because I thought the elegance of the set fitted the occasion.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend! Oh and don't forget to put your clocks back - time for me to go into hibernation lol!
