... we have some wonderful colours for you this week at CR84FN. Beautiful shades of aqua, blue and grey - the inspiration photos are stunning!! The photos are from Crate & Barrel.
Lisa celebrates her birthday this week, and so my card has been made especially for her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Lisa, have a good one! Hopefully, it will reach Lisa in time, but it went off a bit late as I've had a few family issues this last week.
I love the colours we have for you this week. I started off with a silver (grey) A5 card for the base. I sprayed a piece of plain white card with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in silver and over that I stamped in two shades of aqua, this gorgeous blanket background stamp which is from one of Claire's new sets over at Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used my Labels 14 nesties to cut out two shapes - one in a textured silver grey card for the background, and one from a piece of white card which had also been sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist - this time in Aqua Lagoon!. On the smaller piece I added a simple birthday greeting and some lovely flourishes. Both were stamped in Danube Blue and Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. I decided to make some lovely blue roses with my Roses in Bloom set from Waltzing mouse; I used the both the large and small rose, plus a couple of rose buds. They were all coloured with Promarkers. I added a lovely white satin ribbon behind the flowers and labels.
