I'd love to share a card I have made for this month's challenge going on at the awesome, Make The Day Special Challenge blog, which this time round, is a colour challenge. Pick your palette, and go for it...
I chose those beautiful chilled out tones of the first option, and here's my card...
I used Mama Elephant's, 'Zenith Borders', stamp set to create my background. I stamped out one of my borders, a couple of times, in Versamark, and heat embossed it clear powder. I used Distress Inks, in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade, and Dusty Concord mixed with a little Victorian Velvet, to wash all over the top of my stamped borders. Once everything was dry, I ironed the embossing powder off to create this kind of flat, batik effect. I then used Mama Elephant's, 'Happy' die to cut right out the centre. I also cut this die a few other times, on kraft card stock, and, using the double sided adhesive Stick-it, stacked the dies on top of each other, adding the coloured piece to the top, and inlaying the whole thing back into my panel for a really dimensional look. I finished my sentiment by stamping out 'vibes' from Mama Elephant's 'Happy Everything' set, which is just A-MAY-ZING, a sentiment for any occasion. and just sooo cool looking, I LOVE it!!! I finished off by embellishing with a few co-ordinating sequins and mounted the whole thing onto a kraft card base...and there you have it.
I'm really happy with how this card came out, which is a lot more down to Mama Elephant and there awesome products than me haha, but hey ho.
I'd love to know what you think, so please feel free to leave a comment.
Hopefully see you next time.
