Hello everyone. It’s time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz, and this time it’s a recipe challenge.
We would like to see one focal image, one sentiment, 2 patterned papers, and three embellishments. Here is my card:
and a little close-up:
If you have seen my blog frequently, you will know I don’t use many patterned papers – I just don’t know what to do with them! I am so pleased I joined the Design Team at Cardz 4 Galz, as it makes me experiment, and try doing other things with my card making.
For the focal image, I used a new stamp set to me from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Oh My Whiskers’. You will also surely know by now that I have cats, love cats, and anything to put cats on my cards is always a great idea to me.
I stamped this image and coloured with Copics, trying to get three different coloured cats, then used the matching die to cut it out. I then thought about the sentiment and background papers….
I have no idea where these papers came from – the darker green, and the muted stripey bluey paper – but I liked how they looked together. They are both 12×12 inches, so I could play around adding them to this 7 inch square card base.
As the cats in the bucket looked a little curious, I used a stamp from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Purrrfect Sentiments’ , and then looked to my stash for anything cat related to add as embellishments. I think I bought these metal trinket things at a craft show, they may be for jewelry, and placed the butterfly and bee as though the cats in the bucket were looking at them, and added a separate cat trinket just above the sentiment.
The Design Team has come up some fabulous inspiration – very varied – and I hope you will be able to join us. I look forward to seeing what you create with this recipe.
