I had a fabulous day yesterday at the Newbury paper crafts show thanx especially to Wendy and Janyne for organising the show I hope all those in attendance enjoyed themselves as much as I did!
back to today and once again its time for my design team inspiration for the Creative Expressions design team. Just a reminder but we are working this month with our own personal favourites from last years DT packs and I chose my fave die the Lisbon and colour Periwinkle !
I attached this using double sided adhesive sheet stuck to another piece of coconut white card and in the spaces, where the adhesive is exposed, I added Periwinkle polished silk glitter. This technique gives this beautiful glittery yet soft velvet feel background. I then used PVA dimensional glue in Phil Martin's decadent denim to place pearl dots in the centre of each ring.
I stamped the sentiment, from my Monday's child clear stamp set for creative expressions, in watering can archival Ink. I selected the Sunday's child tag who is Bonnie and Blythe according to the old poem, As I felt this was appropriate for a card to be published on a Sunday.
To finish the card I made up some of the camellias using Sue Wilsons camellia complete petal dies and added white PVA in the centre . There is a thin double sided satin ribbon bow in silver which finishes off The design. To mount the card I ran double sided adhesive tape around a larger square and added more of the periwinkle polished silver glitter to balance. A few layers of white and vintage silver and a 21 x 21 cm card is complete.
