Hello there. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their weekend. I have had more time to craft this past few days – but again not really getting down to making the actual cards – just the elements to go on them!
I had some fabulously fantastic news this week – I have been chosen to be part of the Design Team for the ABC Christmas Challenge for the next 6 months! My first design team position! Hugely excited. It means I can make Christmas cards all year long now – with no guilt!
I hope some of you find time to play with us……..
Now on to my card:
As you can see – I went big and bold with these colours, the current colours for Color Throwdown. Instead of colouring with alcohol markers, I went with water-colouring this time.
The Altenew ‘Leaf Frame Cover Die‘ was cut out of some coral card and some grey card and stuck together. The Altenew ‘Inked Rose‘ stamp was stamped and heat embossed with grey, then water-coloured using the Altenew water-colour pan set – red and green.
I tried to go for the messy water-colour look, as the stamp set has quite a few lines on the actual images, which themselves give some shading, I think.
This rose is very big. I almost went with a bigger card base, but I like the way the rose is the centre of attention and just grabs you from the get-go.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – coral, red, green, grey
Watercooler challenges – anything feminine goes
Addicted to stamps and more – anything goes
