Yesterdays card got a very mixed reception I do have to agree with many of my commenting friends it really wasn't very me. With a design team you have to make a card of their style using one of the images provided. I have to admit that although I am quite pleased with the colouring job it's not something I enjoy. I promise, however, that next months design team card will be more my style. I also have some news on that front which I will impart when I'm allowed.
Back to today and I hope everyone likes this creation, its a new colour choice for me but I kinda like it!
This is made with a backing paper I printed off ages ago, I think it may be one I made from a picture of a wallpaper sample. The topper is a mix of three of the different dies in the spellbinders resplendent rectanles I used the largest, second largest and the oval in the middle. Whilst in the die I used distress ink in a green colour (something sage I think) to take the edge off the cream card.
This was mounted onto the backing which had three strips of a jade ribbon lined on it. tied in the middle. I used the cut out from the big panel and coloured it the same way before stamping the sentiment (Waltzing mouse I think but not sure!)
The card was finished with Do'crafts leaves and flowers in a dark green, pearls and a mat of matching green card before, finally, being foam taped to a handmade pearl card blank.
Before I sign off (as its getting late as I usually post last thing at night to go live when I get up in the morning) I wanted to make a shout out to Ita from Ireland.
Ita has been a wonderful supporter, Correspondent and, hopefully, friend since I started my blog. It seems that every blog I stumble across I seem to find that Ita has got there before me, she now has her own blog and can now, finally, have followers. It would be fantastic if you could take a few minutes to go and have a look at, and perhaps follow, her blog and return some of the lovely comments we have received! her blog is Food and Crafts here
Hope no-one minds the plug, Enjoy...
