Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. A very warm welcome to my new followers as well. So thrilled you decided to join me here.
I have another 'just because' card to share with you. Mostly I make my cards for Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc. or for DT projects. There is usually a specific reason for making them and usually a criteria as well. Such as, is it for a male or female or, if it's for a DT project then I have to use specific items such as Megs Garden or 2Crafty Chipboard products. This card, and the one in my previous post were made simply because I was in the mood. I didn't have anyone or anything specific in mind and just went with the flow. Funnily enough, both of these cards have Megs Garden and 2Crafty Chipboard products on them. I guess I just love working with their stuff.
Anyway, here is the second card which is similar and still, quite different from the previous one.
The background was sprayed and dabbed with 'Sugar Plum' and 'Afraid of the Dark' Glimmer Mist and I also splashed some black paint around as well. Added some texture with TCW's 'Art Is' stencil and my go to texture paste (Multi Purpose Filler).
The large blooms are from Megs Garden. Product name is 'Ashlee white'.
The velvet leaf is one I've had in my stash for a while. I had cut some small bits from it to use as leaves in other projects and kinda liked the shape I was left with so I used it here. Sprinkled some Distress Glitter on it and added some beads as well.
Placed a bit of gauze under the cluster and added a few strands of burlap. The gauze was slightly coloured with 'Afraid of the Dark' Glimmer Mist. The chipboard is a small strip cut from 2Crafty's Barb Wire Border.
Here you can see a close-up of the texture as well.
Used some Kaisercraft paper to decorate the inside ...
... and it is done!!
I've made up my mind to try a few challenges this year. I'm even going to check out some Scrapbook Challenges as well because, even if I can't actually enter them, I can still use their criteria to make my cards. I feel I need to expand my horizons and following a set Challenge just may take me out of my comfort zone! That's what I'm hoping for anyway. Wish me luck!!
Thank you so much for visiting and I would love it if you could let me know what you think of my little creation! I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
Take care and God Bless.
