.... it's been a busy day here at Chez Frings!!! I've been making quite a few cards, sadly I can't share some of them just yet! Yes, I know I'm being a bit of a tease :)
However, I can share this card with you - it's actually for two challenges - this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC98 and for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC63 (I had another go at this one).
I really like the colours from the Play Date Cafe and I kept the design clean and simple to allow the colours to shine through. I've adapted Anya's sketch a bit!! I had a hunt through my scraps drawer and found the perfect colours. I cut strips of the mid-blue and used a border punch to add detail to the top and bottom strips. I stamped the hibiscus flowers three times and cut layer and decoupaged them. Finally I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy, Fancy Phrases
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy; Versafine - Onyx Black
Spellbinders: Beaded Circles (S4-292) #2
Accessories: Martha Stewart border punch, clear embossing powder, card from stash
That's all for now. I'm off to watch Torchwood - a really good series. See you all tomorrow. You've still got a few hours to sign up for the Blog Candy.
