Hello lovely ladies and gents.
For the last ten days I’ve been unable to take part in any challenges or upload photos from my i devices , some sort of conspiracy between the so and so’s ! For some reason ipad, iMac and even the most reliable Macbook have refused to play ball, well actually I snapped the charger on my Macbook and there was no replacement to be found ! It was Something to do with my photo programme it’s been such a nuisance as there were so many challenges I had cards for and I couldn’t play along dag nabit ! and other such superlatives.
I really wanted to take part in the last couple of challenges at Less is More especially for their 5th birthday and for their one layer challenge. Now one layer cards are not my forte and I did struggle but I made one , could I upload the photo , no siree , I tried and tried and I nearly cried in the end but to no avail.
Third time’s a charm and as this week’s theme is Texture , the arrival of my brand new embossing folders from WRMK were just the ticket.
I was inspired to make this card by the fabulous Kristina Werner who had made some cards using the WRMK next level embossing folders and watercolours I immediately ordered the folders and I wasn’t disappointed so thanks Kristina .
I used Pan Pastels on Fabriano 100% cotton hot pressed card using a sponge to get the effect I desired and then whipped it through the old Fiskers Fuse. Spellbinders card creator dies were used to create the frame which I popped up with foam to give dimension and as I used the negative space I’m entering this into the City Crafter challenge who are asking us to use the negative space from our dies. The feather was cut with my cameo.
I was so impressed with the dimension achieved with these embossing folders that you’ll be seeing a lot of cards using them over the next few weeks , the results using leather were particularly effective but didn’t photograph too well on this miserable sunday here in Greece.
Wishing you all a beautiful day today.
