Hi there. I’ve been sorting out my craft room, and once I had a nice and clean desk – then I just had to craft, didn’t I? And – I tidied everything up afterwards! I don’t think this will last, but at least I’ll try.
Here is my card:
As I was tidying some of my stuff, I put new stamps and dies in a box so I could play with them. This is one of the stamp and die sets that has just been sitting around getting all lonesome…..
I started by using some Crafters Companion Neenah desert Storm card stock, and stamped the Concord and 9th ‘Stuck On You‘ cactus in a light green, then kinda rocked a darker green over the stamp and stamped again, to get two colours of green.
I then stamped the plantar in Versafine Clare brown, and the little hearts which I placed in a row, and the notice board.
I die cut the images – except the notice board which I had to cut out by hand – and attached everything to a darker brown card base as you see.
A complete contrast to my very, very pink card yesterday………..
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Die Cuttin’ Divas – die cuts with heat or dry embossing (base panel)
Water Cooler Challenges – masculine
Daring Cardmakers – cactus/cacti
