Hey, hope all is well with you and yours.
First of all I would like to say a huge thank you for all the comments that I received for my last card ‘Pink Christmas’. This must be my most successful card ever! I made Top 3 in both the C.R.A.F.T challenge and the Crafty Ribbons challenge. And then if that wasn’t enough I made Top 5 Passionista over on the Passion forPromarkers challenge for the third week running! That’s a hat trick! Oh boy how amazing. I am totally overwhelmed and extremely grateful. Thank you, thank you so very, very much.
Any road up now I’ve stopped gushing, today I would like to share another pink card that I made as a result of some experimental stamping I did with different coloured inks. I do like to ‘have a go’ don’t I? I have used this Gorjuss image in another project here , where I stamped her with my usual Memento Tuxedo Black but then I decided that it might be nice to like to try the ‘No-Lines’ technique. So I reached for the only other 2 paler Mementos that I have which are London Fog and Desert Sand. It was at this point that I had not reckoned without my declining eyesight. The image stamped with London Fog is the one used on this card. It did not come out too badly, looking rather like a pencil line but still visible once coloured so not really ‘no-lines’, therefore I had no problem with this. But Desert Sand, oh dear, I had a hard time even locating the image on the paper! I have to admit to trying to do this in bad light which served me right really. I will get my Ottlite out and try again.
So enough waffle, what did I do. Well my paper is from Papermania as is the pink card. I coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers and cut my image out for a 3D effect. The die is Spellbinders Floral Oval and I cut this from Centura Pearl edged with Victorian Velvet DI. The message and corners are from Tattered Lace and the ‘raindrops’ are from my stash.
Quite simple really and I do love this stamp. Let’s see if I can successfully use my other image to attempt ‘No-Lines’ next time. That’s if I can find where I stamped it!
Smiling always (but despairing over my rubbish eyesight; I have new glasses as well!)!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
