Here's my card for today's challenge over at Craft Your Days Away. We had some lovely entries for our sketch challenge - pop over to the challenge blog to see who the lucky winner is and the Top 3 and Guest Designer spot.
I've gone with a complete change of style for this card - no image, no glitter and no pro markers for once!!! Our challenge for the next two weeks has been set by DT member Lisa and it is:
BLACK & WHITE
We are being sponsored by our regualr sponsor for this challange - Simon Says Stamp. They are offering a $10 voucher for the winner of our Black & White challenge.
Onto the card now .... the paper is by DCWV and I made a pleated flower with it, layering it up onto a nestabilities scallop circle. The flowers are really easy to make - basically taking a length of pleated paper, joining the two ends to make a pleated tube, then pushing the one end into the centre and glueing it down to create the flower shape. If that's totally confused you I've found a video tutorial HERE that might explain it easier than I do! I've used a Sizzix texture plate to emboss the black card, added a bit of faux stitching and an old button with a bit of garden string for a bow.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft - Anything but a square
Fun with shapes and more - Happy Birthday (use die cut/punch)
4 Crafty Chicks - Stitching - real or faux
