Isobel Craft Collection Design Team Challenge

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a great weekend. We have just got back from celebrating our future son-in-law's birthday. We had a lovely meal with them and his parents. Then we went back to their house to have cupcakes made by the company who are making cupcakes for their wedding. The cupcakes are very yummy.

Last week Sophy from The Isobel Craft Collection set a challenge for her design team. We were to make a monochrome easel card with one of the her stamp sets. Well I do like a challenge. I used the first stamp set I ever got from The Isobel Craft Collection.

I decided to make a twisted easel card. I thought the bees were ideal for a monochrome card. I used black and yellow card to make the mats and layers. On the top yellow layer I used the hexagons stamp from the set and stamped it in black. I did ink round the edges with yellow Distress Ink. 

I stamped other elements from the stamp set and black and where I added colour I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I cut the different images out with some hexagon dies in my collection these have a stitched border. 

I do like that easel cards fold flat for posting. This is the card folded for posting. 

Here is the rub. This card will be posted on The Isobel Craft Collection Facebook page along with the other entries and I need votes. Please vote for me. 

Sophy is also hosting one of her wonderful craft sales this evening. This is the link to this event There will be lots of crafty bargains. 

Happy Crafting
