DT Posting - Corrosive Challenges - #74 - Pink & Blue
Corrosive Challenges the theme is to use pink and blue for the focus of your project. My card started with the DP, which is from a Joanna Sheen CD, it is a beautiful jumble of quilts from a collection called Giordano. As a quilter, I had to get the CD with this on :). It also has very pretty toppers and decoupage of puppies and kittens, which is not really my thing. Oh but wait, there is also a set of 12 stamps to go with it! So... I got three of the stamps and here is my first attempt with one of them. I really like it but found both dog and kitten quite challenging to colour in. This card is for my "Post Pal" Alice, if you have any spare cards then Post Pals is a lovely thing to do with them...
Coloured with Copics, edged with Distress Inks and cut out with a scalloped Nestie, I've matted my image and popped it up on 3D pads. The pink is edged with a Marthda Stewart lattice punch and the gingham check is stitched down onto it. Flowers use my new gadget of a cutting die from Little Claire (more new stash!) and I've used a punch for leaves too. The sentiment came with the stamp.
I've used the Sketch & Stash Challenge sketch for my card, my new stash is the stamp (never inked before) and the new CD with the DP. I'm also entering Fussy & Fancy Friday's Stitches, scallops and sparkle challenge, and Cupcake Craft Challenge's Cats & Dogs theme.
