It's All You- The Flower Challenge


Welcome
It's time for another reminder that you still have time to come and play along with us at 




Simple theme to create any card with flowers...and there's 2 great prizes this month from MFT.
Huge thanks to 'My Favorite Things' for sponsoring us, they are giving away two prizes. So we will choose two winners this month! Each will receive a gift card worth $25. Do check out their website as they have amazing crafty things to be seen there !



All our designers and also our guest designer Michele Ferguson have used their products ( kindly donated from MFT) on our cards. Our guest Designer this month is the talented Michele Ferguson. I am sure you all know Michele, she is an avid FC participant, she leaves so many comments for others and makes fabulous cards of course too !




Onto my card details.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and got out my DOX inks with my makeup blending brushes.  Starting at the bottom, I blended Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, next Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch and finally Black Soot at the top.  
When I was happy with all the colour blending, I splattered with water to lift some of the ink; it gives such a great look to the background.
Next, I placed the inky background into my Misti and stamped the flowers randomly along the bottom edge.  I added some more Black Soot DOX ink along the bottom edge to help ground the flowers.
I rubbed the card front with my Anti-static bag, stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink then white heat embossed it so it would pop against the dark background.
I splattered with some white acrylic paint, then mounted the piece onto some black cardstock, then onto a white card base.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Big Wishes- The Flower Challenge


Welcome
Time for a very fun theme at 

This month it's

So, I decided to create a clean and simple card using this great silhouette set from MFT.
I began by using my Marvelous Rectangle mask from a Colorful Life Designs and positioned it over my white card front as I wanted to be left with a clean, white border.
I placed the lace doily stencil over my paper and used some Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers DOX inks to rub over the stencil with a makeup blending brush.  
I removed the stencil then placed the piece into my Misti.  I randomly stamped the flowers, then the sentiment using some black Memento ink.  
Leaving my mask in place, I rubbed some Peacock Feathers along the edges of my card front then using my ScorPal, I scored a border all around the edge of the inked area giving it a framed look and added a few black gems for interest.
I glued that onto a piece of black cardstock then onto a plain white card base.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
I hope you will come and play along with us.
