Hello there. The new challenge at The Alphabet Challenge is ‘N’ for Navy Blue – the creation must have navy blue as the dominant colour. Debbie is the host this time round. Here is my card:
I decided to play with my alcohol inks for this card and create the background panel. I don’t have much luck when I combine colours, so I thought just using the one colour – Denim – would be perfect for my limited skills.
I think I did about 4 or 5 layers to this – waiting for the drying in-between – it took me a while because I had to watch a Tim Holtz video again on the difference between using alcohol itself and blending solution – and even now I couldn’t tell you the difference – it may sink in at some point -no pun intended.
Once I ad created the background panel and it was drying, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Crocus flowers three times for each one – then stuck them together for dimension. Three layers to each flower – which actually came together quite easily, despite the numerous gaps and holes in the die cut.
On the off-cut from the panel, I die cut the sentiment, then backed it with a white layer.
I wanted a frame around the panel, so I cut a piece of card slightly smaller than the card base, and die-cut a rectangle for the window, and assembling all as you see.
I hope you can come and join us for our ‘Navy Blue’ challenge – I look forward to seeing you there. xx
