I, like many of you, absolutely love Concord and 9th and wish I could afford to buy all of their products. Unfortunately with my limited craft budget I have to be very picky about my purchases and often miss out on buying any of their goodness. They have the most incredible range of floral stamps and dies and the entries in this Creativity meets C9 challenge already are spectacular. If you haven't already discovered this company, I suggest to pop over there right away!!
For my card I was inspired by a new product I hadn't gotten round to using yet and some goodies a friend sent me:
Oh I wish you could see the silver shimmer in real life!! The always fabulous Barb of Barb's Studio Creations sent me some die-cuts a while ago, including Concord and 9th. I desperately wanted to use them but you know what its like when you only have a few of something, you put off using them. I decided this was it and they were getting used!! Thank you so much Barb!
To start off I embossed a panel of white CS and then painted with my new Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Platinum. This stuff goes on like butter and dries so quickly. I cut the panel down and adhered to the card front.
Barb had cut the flower and leaves out of Tim Holtz Watercolour CS, so I used another new product Tombow Dual Brush Pens 'Bright Palette' and water coloured them all. The colour spreads so easily!! Once dry I adhered the leaves in place and put the flower on foam tape.
The sentiment was simply stamped in black ink on white CS, fussy cut out and put on foam tape as well. And of course I had to add some sequins and love the look of the clear one in the middle of the flower.
The embossing folder is from We R Memory Keepers. The sentiment is from Concord and 9th 'Map Love' and the sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I have two other challenges I would like to enter:
Scrapbook Boutique - May Challenge
AAA Card Challenge # 90
Its a very chilly morning but I have gardening to do, so better get my 'A into G'. Hopefully I can finish early enough today to take Bella for a walk. Now that daylight savings is in full swing there isn't much time to walk her after school and the kids don't really want to move after they have made it home. Fingers crossed the weeds will be good to me today!!
