Happy Sunday and welcome to October. It is proper Autumn now. The bunnies went home yesterday. Now I just have the room to clear.
The new challenge starts on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog and the theme is Anything Goes and this time the sponsor is Rick St Dennis. I was able to choose an image from the fabulous store to use for my card. The prize it two images from the store for the winner.
I found the dark snowflake paper in my stash. I used rich gold and reds for the mats and layers.
There are many wonderful images in the store to suit all tastes. If you click on the image you should be taken to the store.
This image is called Angel Wreath and it is on sale here. I printed it onto to card and I coloured it with my Promarkers. I cut is out with my ScanNcut as like how you can leave a border round the image. If I did this by hand it would not be even.
Now I had coloured the image and I thought it needed a message in the centre. I would not have attempted this without my Tim Holtz's Stamping platform because I could put the stamp exactly where I wanted it and if I missed a bit it was easy to restamp. I am finding the platform such a useful tool. Finally I sprayed the whole image with Spray and Sparkle.
Now I did start with a smaller image but I decided to go larger for my main card. Well you know I don't like anything to go to waste I made a smaller card with the off cuts from the bigger cards. I had to use a different stamp for the sentiment the other one didn't fit.
Here they are together. They will both sent out this Christmas. My husband even remarked that he liked the bigger card and usually he doesn't say anything unless asked directly.
Enjoy the rest of the day
