Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. A special warm welcome to my new followers, so pleased you are joining me on my creative journey. I hope you are all having a fantastic day.
If you have seen my last couple of posts you would have seen that I have decided to enter some Challenges on a regular basis this year. I am hoping it will expand my horizons and take me out of my comfort zone. I want to do at least one Challenge a month, maybe more if time permits. Anyway, today I want to share a card I have made for my first Challenge in 2015.
The paper I've used are the 'Gentleman Collection' from Megs Garden. Inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and also distressed them with the Ingvild Bolme Distress Tool.
Added a patch of crackle paint through the Tim Holtz Latticework Stencil for a bit of interest.
The chippie is from 2Crafty Chipboard's World Globe and Ink Set. Coloured the stand with Black Soot DI and then coated it with Glossy Accents. The world map was inked with Lapislazuli, Olive and Orange VersaColor.
The stamp on the sides is the Arty stamp from Kaisercraft and the greeting is also a KC stamp. Had a little hiccup when I stamped the greeting but decided to leave it as is.
The inside was also decorated with the same papers and I just doodled around the edges. Left some blank space so I can add a verse or sentiment.
Once everything was assembled and dry I brushed around the card randomly with some gesso.
I have decided to enter this into the Challenge at Feeling Sketchy
and also at Simon Says Stamps. Wish me luck!!?? I'll be happy if I can just get the Linky thing to work! LOL!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to pop in and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care and God Bless.
