Hello lovely ladies !
It’s the 20th of the month and time for our final challenge for February over at Get Creative . Our lovely leader Irini has given us this fantastic sketch to work with
Come and see what I made :-
I recently bought the Majestic Elements Nestabilities dies from Spellbinders and couldn’t wait to play with them, because of the intricate design spellbinders recommend the use of freezer paper or something similar, I used baking parchment together with the cardstock in order for the paper to release more easily from the die . I loved the result so much that I decided to use the parchment instead of the card. On the larger of the two pieces I stamped this pretty doily from the set Delicate Doilies by Inspired by Stamping with Deep Purple Archival ink and then added another layer of parchment on top , I really love how the stamp shows through. I made a couple of rosettes with some lovely SU design paper and added a little flower to embellish the centre .
Here’s another card I made following the same sketch
The DP is from the Pixie Glen collection from Prima and I used Spellbinders Decorative Elements dies to cut the frames, the beautiful crocheted broach in the centre was created by our leader Irini and is from her Etsy shop Get Creative Embellishments. I added a couple of sticks pins which I coloured with Copic markers in order to match the paper
The winner of this challenge will come back as guest designer in April
Please pop over to Get Creative to see the fabulous inspirational pieces by the DT, you have until the 27th of February to upload your card .
Have been having a few health problems this week and have been confined to bed one of the disadvantages with my studio not being at home is that I have been unable to blog or comment the past few days . My iPad is very selective and so have not been able to visit you all. In order to schedule this post I have left home to come to my studio in the pouring rain in my PJ’s and a very long coat to hide my indecency ! Fortunately it’s not too far but I do look a bit like a homeless old lady !
Take care and hopefully I will catch up with you soon
