I hope everyone is having a good week, I am having a very busy one and only have enough time left to blog this and tomorrows posts a head of time before a couple of hours sleep then I am off to visit Creative Expressions. I am looking forward to seeing my friend Tracey and helping her prepare for workshops at Kettering.
Today's card is from this months launch called The once upon a time collection and I love it, it is very me with all the clocks and flowers and the colours are divine.
Take a look at my card.
I stamped my image and coloured it in with Adirondack inks and distress inks of course haha. I covered the image with a double sided sheet and micro beaded it then wrapped some of my dusky pink ribbon with a fine gold edge to it around the card which I added onto a piece of the gorgeous paper with the clock image already on, I mounted that onto some plum card and then cream card which I pierced and added onto foam and onto another piece of cream.
I looked in my stash for clock hands and a metal sparkly frame I could put my sentiment in and I was lucky.
I added a bow on top of the ribbon and a hand made flower using the Majestic blooms collection die and stamps too, I also made up 4 of the tiny flower and placed them on top of the image I stamped as that already had flowers on the image so I built them up and used a few leaves from the classic leaves collection too which I snipped apart to use a little here and there. Lastly as always a little bling in the corners and the flower centres and hey presto.
I have a much more detailed description over at Heartfelt Creations today if you would like to come see please do.
Here is some more pictures for you.
A little closer on the edges and the image, isn't it a stunner.
Ahh, now you can see the little beads sparkling.
A full view as it lays on my desk, I still love plum just as much.
Last one. Keeping your pierced edge straight and your matting crisp and straight gives a professional finish to the plainest of cards and makes all the difference when people look at it up close.
I am sorry it has been a little manic these last couple of weeks with winding up things for the Operation Monday and trying to keep to schedule for the companies I design for it certainly has been a bit manic but I will be home the day after my op ( I hope) and with be recuperating and we can all catch up every day and I am looking forward to creating lots of goodies too.
