On Your Wedding Day

Hi there

I'm back with my second card of the day.  The World Cup is great - while the man is watching the matches I'm also sitting in the lounge making cards!  Everyone's a winner...although I doubt very much that England will be! lol :)

This is another one layer card (these are fast becoming my favourite kind - who knew?!) and is made purely using stamps from Clearly Besotted (one of my absolute fave stamp companies) and ink, nothing more.

And this has got to be a record for me, I've managed to combine TEN CHALLENGES!!!  I've checked all the details on each challenge blog and I don't think I'm breaking any rules so I'm going ahead and linking them all up.

Here's this evening's creation, I went with a wedding card as I have none in my stock and you never know when someone might want one...

First I stamped the stripes.  I used pigment ink so waited a few minutes for this to dry before masking off the stripes with some post-its.  I then used a few individual stamps to build up the flowers, flower centres and leaves.  After removing the masks I stamped the sentiment, and that was all it needed.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Basic Stripes, Love Blossoms and Bridal Bouquet
  • Ink: Versa Color - Seafoam, Orchid, Petal Pink and Bamboo; Versafine - Onyx Black

And now for the challenges, here goes...

Color Throwdown - Challenge#296

Crazy for CAS - Challenge #46 - Sketch

CASE Study - Challenge #195

Clearly Besotted - Challenge #12 - Anything Goes
One Layer Simplicity - Challenge #6 - I've Been Framed

That's all for now folks, it feels good to be back after my little blip over the last couple of weeks.  I need to do some serious organising of my stash, the way I'm working at the moment isn't ideal and I have so many bits and pieces out on my table as they need to be sorted before I put them away.  This could take some time! :D

Thanks so much for visiting and for all your lovely comments, its great to know what you think of my creations.

Bye for now
