I've had a lovely crafty start to my long weekend off and finished this card for the challenge from Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge which is to use Black, White and Red. I am so excited as i've been invited to join the DT at Cowgirl Up, I love working with CJs stamps so I'm one very happy bunny. Anyway enough chat, here is my card which uses the Cowgirl Up image 'Cups_Lou', I love this image as she looks such a party animal
I've made a 8x8 card from A4 white hammered cartstock for this card and stamped the Elusive Images corner stamps directly onto the base card with black versafine. I've then added a scrap of red card and some black trim i got from the local scrap store. I think its actually bra strap elastic as its soooooo strong and stretchy you could nearly use it to bungee jump lol.
I've stamped the Tim Holtz quote onto white card, mounted onto black card and rounded the corners of both and attached it with foam tape.Lou is coloured with promakers and attached with silicone glue
I made some flowers from some pages from a book I've started to alter. I saw them on my friend Janet's blog (have a look, they are really easy to make) and thought they were so gorgeous i had to have a play. I cut out 5 circles of paper for each flower and sprayed them with loads of Lava Red cosmic shimmer mist and used black button brads for the centre. I got in such a mess making these lol, here is a pic of my hands AFTER I'd washed them
I look like I've been killing a pig as my granny would have said.
I'm also entering this card in to the following challenges:
Magical Crafts: Black, White + one more colour
Sketch &Stash - I've rotated the sketch and the black trim is new stash from my trip to the scrap store, everything else is from my untidy craft room
