Well good morning...sorry I am a bit late posting this but it's been a bit of a hectic and stressful week for me.
Thankfully I had had last week off and had done all my samples for the show tomorrow and for the challenge blog! I think if I said OFSTED then you will understand!
Anyway on to the new Challenge...
Last month I think you really enjoyed the challenge as there were so many entries and all really lovely which makes it hard to choose the top five but when they are announced well done to those people. And well done to the winner ....enjoy spending your prize.
This month as Spring is just about on us then the subject is a great one. FLOWER POWER. It reminds me of a fancy dress competition I did when I was younger and me and my 3 friends went as the Flower Power Girls...all in vivid colours mainly purples and greens so I used that memory to make my card.
Here it is.
I used the flower framer kit and the insects from the flower border classroom set.
I started off by cutting a piece of clarity card into a square and then stamping the word flower into the centre using currant Adirondack ink. I blotted it well!!!
I then covered it up with a post it note and using the pansy stamp form the flowers I just filled the card completely with flowers. Again I used the currant Adirondack ink. I blotted that and then left it to dry.
I then cut myself a mask for the O and then removed the post it note and filled the O with flowers. I stamped the dragonflies but I did them ink blot plot and then the ladybird...well I think I had to!
Then it came to colouring the flowers. I made sure I had a piece of paper to cover my work and rest my hand on as I coloured every pansy with 2 purple and an orange promarker. I also added colour to the ladybird but went for a pink not a red!
I used a brown fine liner to edge round the space where the word was then matted and layered on to a piece of dark brown card then purple before I put it on an 8 x 8 card blank.
Hope you take some time to visit the rest of the DT cards on the blog...there are some stunners this month!
