... 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!!

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.
