Well it's CACB time again already! This time it's our first one in our new home and we have another first - our first sketch challenge. I have to admit that when I'm planning a card, I usually go looking for a sketch and if I'm struggling I always go looking for sketch so I thought it was about time we had one!
This was one of those cards I really enjoyed making because it came together really well. I've used two dp's (royal blue from the polished stone, brights collection and tartan 1 from the new Tartans collection) and white pearlescent paper. I printed the 3D daisy onto the white prearlescent paper and this paper is so gorgeous that the only colouring I needed to do was the flower centres (I always to them all in case any bits inadvertently show) which I coloured with promarkers and added some stickles to the top layer. I embellished with no less than 7 flourishes made from silver mirri, 3 papemania pearl brads and a white satin ribbon bow. There's lots of lovely sheen, shine and sparkle on this card because I printed the dp's onto satin paper but only printed the sizes I need to save on both ink and paper.
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
- ABC - B is for blue
- PTW - 3,2,1 (3 brads, 2 dp's, 1 flower)
- CCC - Sparkle & Shine
- Fab 'n' funky - Recipe, 3 papers, 2 embellishments, 1 image
- Rainbow Lady - sparkle & shine
- Craft Your Passion - do your own flower
I hope you'll be able to join us for this challenge and that you'll pop over and see the cards that the rest of the DT have come up with to inspire you - they really are fabulous!
