Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog DT Card #13
Hi everyone, today's card is my DT creation for Crafty Ann's Challenge where the theme this fortnight is a recipe.
Pop over for more details and to see what the rest of the DT have come up with, you won't be disappointed.
We're also welcoming a new member of the DT......
Irene has agreed to join us and I'm so happy as I've always adored her style of card making, so I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with her permanently from now on.
This image from Ann has to be one of my favourites, I think it has such a beautiful 'vintage' look to it.
I've made this a large card (8x8) and added quite a lot of embellishments to it as it's also destined to be my best friend's birthday card.
It's very sparkly, so she's sure to love it as she's a great believer in the adage that a girl can never have too much sparkle (now you know why we're best friends, we always think alike)
By the time I'd finished making this my whole house sparkled, so I think I'll have to pop a note in, to warn her to have her hoover handy LOL!
* Image - Crafty Ann's 'Music Collage 3'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Crafty Ann's 'Polished Brights - Earth Tones (pale brown)' and
Doodlebug Design Paper Potpourri 'Bon Bon Boutique- Daydream'
* Sentiment - computer generated (on tag) and Dawn Bibby peel-offs (on ribbon)
* Everything else from my stash
I used Crystal Lacquer on the violin and bow, to give it a glossy finish as if it were well polished wood (well that was the plan anyway) The tag was hand drawn and then stamped with Personal Impressions 'Swirls & Flourishes' clear stamp using 'Walnut Stain' distress ink. The dark chocolate satin ribbon is part of a prize of gorgeous ribbons that I have had sitting in my stash for ages, because I think they're much too beautiful to use.
I do hope you manage to join us, oh and if you joined in with our last challenge, don't forget to pop over to check who the lucky winner was.
Have you seen this fabulous candy being offered by Rach?
You have until 2/5 to enter, but please don't, as I really want to win this lol!
