CR84FN31, Part II ....

... I realised after I'd scheduled last week's post, that I'd forgotten to mention something important!  Silly me!!  Starting with CR84FN31 - last Sunday - the CR84FN Design Team is taking things a bit slower.  For the duration of the summer hols, we're doing the challenges on a fortnightly basis, and we'll return to normal weekly challenges from Sunday 4th September. 

However, that doesn't mean I can't share another card with you that I've made using the CR84FN31 colours - the pink, green and neutral scheme is just yummy!  My card features flowers - like last time - but this time the feel is totally different!  And where my dominant colour last time was green - this time I've gone girly with lots of hot pink!!




I used a mask to make the background - I simply laid it over the card base and sprayed my Cosmic Shimmer Mist all over building up the depth of colour gradually.  After removing the mask, I dried the card base to make sure I didn't smudge it!  Next I cut out some backing mat using my nesties.  On a bit of the green paper I also stamped some leaves.  I stamped the flowers using Versamark and Rose Bud and quickly poured on clear embossing powder and heat set it.  In real life the flowers have a lovely shine!  I sprayed them with the Cosmic Shimmer to match the background.  The small mat was sprayed with a green Cosmic Shimmer mist.  Finally, I added a large brad onto which I burnished a greeting!   Kathryn loves this card!!

Stamps:  Dawn Bibby - Daisies
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud
Spellbinders:  Lacey Squares (S4-295) die # 4,  Classic Squares Sm (S4-128) die #5
Accessories:  Cosmic Shimmer Mists - Candy Pink and Meadow Lush; Cosmo Cricket Paper - De Lovely; Creative Expressions Mica Mask - Floral Lace; Hot of the Press - Large Brad and transfer; Card from stash

I know that some of  the DT have made another card this week - so do check out the CR84FN blog to see CR84FN Part II - a bit like a film sequel :)  Participation may vary - depending on who is away on holiday at the time!  You've got plenty of time to play along with the challenge - what are you waiting for?  These colours are just so gorgeous!!  Our inspiration pictures are courtesy of Steve Steinhardt.



I had planned to make some cards yesterday and get them posted.  Instead I ended up tidying my craft room - it was looking like a bomb had hit it!  Now it's looking quite good - I can see the floor again - and find stuff too.  So I plan to spend some time playing today - and I hope to post a card or two later this afternoon.  Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.  Bye for now.

I like seeing the way you combine different techniques of inking - I don't even possess any ink sprays apart from what I've made up in a couple of mini misters. That's something I am going to have to explore.
I love daisies - anything with a daisy & I'm sunk.
Hope your knee is improving & thanks too for your lovely encouragement; hope you caught up on some sleep.
