I'm still enjoying getting inky so have made a few more cards while I had the distress inks out.
I finally worked out a way to use my mini tattered flower dies in my cuttlebug. I've written down the sandwich that lets it fit through easily and still cuts well! It needs 3 cardboard shims so I've labelled them so they don't accidentally get tossed out.
The centre is a little paper flower that I bought from Craft Queen years ago, painted with twinkling H2O's.
I've used snippets of watercolor paper for the petals and spritzed them with home made gold perfect pearls. It's a bit hard to see the sheen in the photo. The stem is from my offcuts, I save some of the little strips that I trim from cardstock! Need to talk to someone about that obsession!!
I'm visiting the snippets playground again at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
At Inkspirational there's a sketch challenge.
I hope I haven't varied the sketch too much. My card halves are straight, not on the diagonal and I've moved the flower to 1 end rather than the middle.
Addicted to Stamps & More has an anything goes challenge theme.
I'm joining in for the first time at Time Out Challenges. They have a birthday theme with the optional twist of being masculine.
At Seize the Birthday, it's a birthday theme with an optional topping of white on white.
Materials used: Mini tattered flower die; distress inks; Petal Pleasures embossing folder; Memory Box leaves die; sentiment sticker.
