As this is an Easter card, I'm linking for the following challenges:
Saturday, 28 March 2009
It's also for yesterday's 365 challenge: Touchy Feely Friday - this is all about texture: 'Try to incorporate 3 different methods of adding texture to the paper on your card.'
I rang a piece of green card through the big shot with the birdie cuttlebug embossing folder and then swiped it with green and brown chalk inks, filing it in between to give a more distressed look - so that is one texture. The next texture is the lace that goes across the middle. The third texture is the stamped and embossed 'just for you' image (a stamp that I acquired this morning) and the colouring in is also an embossed effect using Sakura gelly roll glaze pens.
The background paper with lilies was part of a decoupage kit - lots left over - and has an envelope with a maching insert.
I know it's late, but I'm also linking for Stamp Something 'spring' challenge from last week.
And this time I have used a stamp (unlike the previous card), so I'm linking for Sunday Stamper 52: Diamonds are forever. I'm also linking for today's One Stop Craft challenge 22: bling tastic, because I've used a few bling heart gems. The papers used are the same as on the previous card, the Debbi Moore Anniversary stamp on the card that has a lovely sheen irl - stamped using Brilliance pearlescent purple and clear embossed.
This card was also going to be for Sunday Stampers week 52: diamonds are for ever, but when I'd finished the card I realised I hadn't used any stamping - d'oh!! So I'll be making another one for that.
Anyway, I am also linking this for Charisma Cardz challenge 12: my favourite things, because I just love lilac colours and also love using embossing folders and I have used both on this.
The piece of card that's been embossed with diamonds has a lovely subtle sheen to it and the piece overlaying this is iridescent and has a different look according to how the light catches.
Very soon now I have to make a commissioned diamond wedding anniversary card - it needs to be a large card for lots of people to sign, but I won't be tackling that today.
I'm also linking this for Paper Minutes 55: numbers (60 is quite a large number for the years to have been married).
