Hi, Wednesday again, where is the week going? This week's challenge from Cooking it up with Katie seems to have come around really quickly doesn't it? Our recipe this week is
and we have a wonderful sponsor again this week, Shelley's Images! I used this image for my card this week - sorry the photo isn't too good my dreadful photography skills were made even worse than usual by the dark horrible weather!!
The image is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with sakura stardust pens. I struggled for a quote and settled on this one from Elusive images. I tore the edges of the image and the quote and inked them with vintage photo and pine needles DI. The other torn sheet is made with acrylic paints on linen card - i used a layer of dark green then a layer of coppery red and splashed it with water before blotting to let some of the green show through. The flowers are made with a Marianne designs die (Floral Fantasy) with a gem in the centre. The gem was a clear one coloured with alcohol ink but it doesn't show up to well in the pic. The red corrugated card and the ribbon are from my stash. The gorgeous wood grain bp is from Crafty Ann's.
I kind of thought I'd finished the card and then remembered ' CHIPBOARD' aaaaargghhh!! I was a bit stuck as I don't use a lot of chipboard embellies and didn't have anything remotely suitable. I did have loads of really naff chipboard tags and shapes that came with kits i bought when I first started crafting though. I took a round tag that had some teddies on it and inked it with versamark and added a few layers of cosmic shimmer EPs in gold, lava black and green and then stamped into it with a leafy branch stamp from Elusive images. I raided the shed for a bit of string to finish it off. I'm really pleased with the way this turned out so i'll be able to use up all those chipboard shapes i've got now, sometimes it pays to be a hoarder lol.
