Chilly morning today but the sun is shining ... Happy Mother's Day to all mums in the UK, today is your day!!
Another day, another card ... I seem to be stuck in 'OK' mode at the moment - my cards are OK but seem to lack the 'WOW' factor. Please don't get me wrong I am mostly happy with the cards that I create but they don't make me run around the house with excitement - mind you, it takes a lot to make me run anywhere, I'm more of a walker!!
Anyway less of the drivel! Today's card is all about colour and Spring.
I love circles so yesterday, when I accidentally (!) found myself in my local craft shop, I spotted this new (to me) Sizzix die and I knew I just had to have it. Add in my new obsession with alcohol inks and an idea was born!! I first created the coloured paper using a selection of inks lovingly placed (actually ... just randomly dropped and spritzed) onto some Yupo paper. I die cut a piece of card first, then die cut the background paper and set to placing all the coloured pieces back into the outline die - very fiddly but very satisfying!! I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto a small strip of vellum. I sponged around the edge of the card base to add a little colour before popping up the panel with fun foam and adhering it to the base.
I'm going to enter the following challenges:
"Less is More" It is colour week - CITRUS
TIME OUT #51 - Easter and/or Spring with the optional technique twist of masking
STAMPlorations March CAS Challenge
