Today I created a birthday card for a friend in the red, white and blue colours seeing as they seem to be everywhere at the moment due to the celebrations:
Ok so apologies for the photos but I had to take them with the camera on my phone.
I coloured a white card blank using antique linen and vintage photo distress ink and also another piece of card in the same way. I stamped the Juliet image from Indigoblu in red and mounted her onto a piece of black card. I used the vintage photo distress ink to stamp with the ends of her hair onto the card blank. I then coloured two sections of card using chipped sapphire distress ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Waltzing Mouse Say It Loud stamp set onto one section and matted it with black card. The other blue section I punched along the sides with the xcut leafy lace punch then stamped the Indiogoblu Juliet stamp hair ends along it in black ink.
I made a flower by putting a running stitch along a piece of lace and pulling it tight, I then added the button and bakers twine to the centre. I pleated some of the lace also the run along the front of the card. Finally I added some pearls to two of the corners.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
