Evening all! I'm turning into a regular blogger now, P will be so pleased! I have another card for you all which I made for a GDT spot on Quirky Crafts Challenges which this week is sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. They have such a huge range of digi stamps and papers, all of which are marvellously affordable, you really could "fill your boots" in that shop....
The Challange this week was to create a card without using any patterned papers - a real Do-It-Yourself job (without the hammer and wonky shelving).
I chose a lovely image from Stitchy Bear called Camelia's in a Watering Can, which I've coloured with my trusty Promarkers. To create the background, I used a fabulous new stamp of mine from Impression Obsession, called the Damask Cover-a-Card stamp. At nearly 6" square it certainly does exactly that.
I inked it up with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and stamped it onto a 135mm square card blank, and then used some clear embossing powder over the top, and blended a bit of Old Paper distress ink on the edges of the basecard. I die cut the image and a piece of green (pistachio, I think) Bazzill card stock with Nesties Labels 1, and mounted it all up on 3D foam pads. A sweet sentiment and a couple of gems and it's a done thing.
Make sure you check out the other DT's beautiful cards and blogs and have a go at the challenge yourself.
