Sunshine, blue skies and Saturday - what more can a girl ask for!! A day at home, no driving and time to craft. So far today I have made two cards, painted a chair (that I'm refurbishing), done three loads of washing, a bit of shopping, cooked some pulled pork for tomorrows dinner and even managed to do some hoovering!
This is my first card for today:
I blended a number of distress inks on a piece of watercolour card and then misted with water with perfect pearls to create a shimmer across the surface. I cut the panel up with a hexagon thinlit die then adhered the hexagons to another piece of cardstock added a sentiment and mounted the panel on to a card base with foam pads to give a little more dimension.
Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries
Stampin Up - Hexagon Thinlit die
This week's challenge at "Less is More" is a colour challenge with SUNSET as the theme. - the colour theme for this card was the starting point for me so I will enter the challenge. I love these colours so you could see me entering more than once this week!
Edit: I've popped back to add a credit to Laura Bassen - I have seen a lot of Laura's work and admire her as a designer of beautiful cards. Although she wasn't in my mind when I created this card her influence is clear to see. Thank you Sarah (Sazzle Dazzle) for pointing this out and apologies to Laura for not having credited her for inspiring me.
