If anyone can tell me where the last week has gone I would be very grateful. I had great intentions of getting stuck into some challenges last week but time just got the better of me. I have been running around to appointments with my son and then the weekend went by in a flash with sport Saturday morning and Sunday watching my darling husband play football.
I have however managed to do my 3rd DT card for Papertake Weekly. This week we are sponsored by Sassy Studio’s and were given a few digital stamps to play with. There was no way I could make this weeks card without using one!! The fabulous Dawny has provided another superb sketch for this weeks challenge:
Did you notice no patterned papers? I know I was quite chuffed with myself for not using any!!! It is different to what I would normally do, perhaps a little sexy as my husband has told me. Not sure who or for what occasion I could give the card but oh well I had fun making it.
I have used some black and red cardstock I had laying around. For the top layer of the black cardstock I used my Pokka Dots embossing folder and then gently rubbed over the top with some white acrylic paint to bring out the dots, not sure if you can really see this in the photo. I have also used my copics for colouring, the hair for some reason has come out a lot harsher in this photo (in life the light bounces are a lot softer and more natural looking), ribbon I had in my stash, kaisercraft rhinestones, sparkly Prima Dynasty flower centre has been applied to knot of ribbon tie. The image was cut out and then mounted with some 3D tape. I think I have managed to get it all in.
It is my baby girls’ birthday on Thursday and she is turning 8 so I have been busy this afternoon making cakes to take to netball training tomorrow night and chocolate crackles to take to school on Thursday. Tomorrow I better sit down and make her a special card, she sees everything that I make so she would know if I have not made one especially for her. So all going to plan I will be back tomorrow to show you what I have done.
In the meantime be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly and look at the other DT’s cards and if you have time pop by their blogs and see what they have been doing.
Until next time xoxo
