Good morning folks, can you believe it's the 1st August already? That means it's time for our new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this month the pink team have a theme of 'Floral' so there's lots of scope to play along. My teamies have got loads of inspiration for you so it's well worth a visit to the challenge blog if you have time.
I've used one of the beautiful stamps from Punky Flowers by Chocolate Baroque to make this card. I stamped the image, embossed with silver EP and painted with metallic paints. The background was made on my gelli plate, with a leftover background and a little added stencilling. I saw the lovely Lesley Wharton demonstrate this technique on the Craft Channel a few weeks ago and it's really fun, plus it cleans your gelli plate too so that's a bonus. You leave the paint until it's completely dry and then use parcel tape to life the background from the gelli plate, a genius idea and I love the effect.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: A touch of sparkle
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
Creative Knockouts: Anything goes
Get Creative: Lots of blue
Left of Centre: Quirky/weird
Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
