Do you ever start making a card and then end up with something completely different? I started off this morning with a very definite colour combination for the next family birthday card and ended up on the other end of the scale.
Lots of great inspiration this week:
- Tuesday Throwdown – Using Layers
- Simon Says Stamp – Shaker Cards
- Sketch Saturday – Great Sketch by Alex (Sketch 400)
- Allsorts – Birthday Greetings
I had envisaged a card in jewelled blues and reds with bright sequins but I ended up choosing a soft pink and brown with the shaker filled with wooden and corked shapes.
The shaker element has pink pattern paper on the base and is covered with vellum, the overall effect is softer than if I had added plastic on the top. I have filled it with white sequins, wooden and cork elements from various Gossamer Blue kits.
I have used foil card, pearlised card and pattern paper with glitter embedded in it. The edging on the card is using a technique I picked up from Create and Craft and instead of using ink, I used an alcohol ink marker with a wedge end.
