Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

I was struggling at the end of last year (doesn't it feel strange saying last year about a couple of weeks ago?) to keep simple sunday going however It did prove very popular so while some of the simple cards and projects may be more complex I am intending to show something each week that can be made quickly!

This card couldn't be simpler it is just the mask which I have inked through using Shaded Lilac distress ink.  I inked the edges and added it to a layered card with the embossed panel.

I added some pearl PVA glue dts at the junctions on the inked image as well as a strip of sea binding and a messy bow with a heart dazzler in the centre.



I hope you will agree that this is an effective card however it is a simple one to create and could suit many occasions.



Ingredients:

That Special Touch mask Delicate
Shaded Lilac distress Ink
Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA
Couture Creations large retro flowers embossing folder
CE Lilac seam binding.


Enjoy...

  14. Hi John, Always smile when I read "messy bow" - crikey if you think that's messy you should take a look at my efforts. To-days card is lovely and one I can definitely try, my background dies are taking on a whole new role.

    I for one, as I'm sure many of your regulars, are grateful for the efforts you make on our behalf to keep your feature days going, Thanks, Carol

  15. Hi John
    I love this card. It's simply stunning, and in my favourite colours as well. im assuming that you used the delicate mask on the panel and used white embossing powder. I tried this technique once but it didn't turn out so well. Any tips?. Hugs to all in need of one today.
