... Good morning - time for my second card with our fabulous CR84FN63 colours of denim, tan and brown. Last time I went with a very masculine card, this time I've made a card for one of my UK buddies. I like to send home notes - I know it's easier to send emails, but there's nothing nicer than getting something in the post, something to keep!
Stamps: Hero Arts - Layered Flowers (CL496); Dawn Bibby - Flower Patch; Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments II
Inks: Memento - Rich Cocoa; Distress - Walnut Stain, Faded Jeans
Accessories: Waltzingmouse - Lace; Papermania - Portobello Road DP 6" x 6"; Marianne Die - LR0133; Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake card
I enjoyed making last week's card with the distressing, etc, so I had another go. I started off with some old style newspaper print paper from the Portobello collection, cut it to size and then distressed the edges, crumbled it up and then lightly rubbed over some colour. I cut the dotty paper to size, distressed the edges and added this lovely cream lace. I made the layered flower by stamping the image three times; twice onto some postage style paper and once on the dotty paper. On the bottom layer of the flower I sponged on some blue ink. I stamped a couple of flowers directly onto the card, and then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment. I finished off by adding some leaves.
Here's the graphic for this week's colours - photos courtesy of Magnolia Rouge.
For more inspiration cards from the DT check out the CR84FN blog or click on the links in my sidebar. Don't forget, we are having an Open Design Call - we want to add some new designers to the team. The six month term will begin on 4th November 2012. Do make sure to use our colours and add "DT" after your name so that we know you want to be considered.
See you soon.
