Just wanted to share another card I made for the blog challenge over at Make the day special. It's their 3rd challenge, and this time 'all you have to do is make a project based on the sketch', and here it is...
and here's my second effort...
I thought I'd try something a little different so decided to do a clear card.
So, after making my card blank from acetate I die cut the Paper Smooches 'Notebook basic die', and watercoloured it using distress inks. I wanted to keep it quite light and dreamy so used, Spun sugar, Tumbled glass, and Broken china. I added some extra interest to the piece by stamping small stars from the Mama Elephant 'make a wish' set in the same colours, plus a few teeny silver ones. I then die-cut Paper Smooches 'Love' die several times and built it-up to make a more substantial sentiment. I then heat embossed the top layer in liquid platinum embossing powder and in-laid this into my notebook to give a cleaner, neater finish.
I decided to make my little banner from ribbon, which I attached using a lovely sparkly pink brad. I then embellished with a few little Mama elephant stars from the 'creative confetti cuts' die, also heat embossed in liquid platinum, and there you have it.
I was pretty chuffed with how this card came out. I love the simplicity of it ...but... boy oh boy did I underestimate what an absolute nightmare acetate is to photograph ha ha. So I hope you can see what you're looking at o.k!!!
Well, as always, I would love to read your comments so please feel free to share them.
