I love the colours for the Papervine Challenge so much, I just had to have another go. And I am so excited that my bloggie friend Monika from Creative with Monika saw my post yesterday and she too has entered. Her card is brilliant!!
I've been waiting for six weeks to get my hands on the latest stamp set from Rosie's Studio and finally found it on Friday. It has a feather stamp (which I really wanted) and a cool heart stamp made up of small triangles. While trying them all out, I came across an idea for this challenge:
This is quite a large design, so had to change from my usual card size to a
5x5 inch square card. I stamped the feather in yellow first and then the blue second. For some reason it looks almost 3D in person, with the blue feathers looking like they are floating above the yellow. I die cut a circle from vellum and heat embossed the sentiment (from Fiskars 'Hexagon Sentiments') in gold. I applied glue in dots behind the embossed area to attach it to the card. A few Papervine enamel dots and I didn't think it needed anything else.
I'm linking this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
Will also link to the Uniko Studio Challenge # 19 where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
And will also link to the Simply Create Too Challenge # 82 where their theme is also 'Anything Goes'.
We are off shortly to a memorial service to mark 100yrs since World War 1. We have a clock tower memorial in the town centre which has the names of all the men who died from Blenheim and I have two great-uncles listed there. Each night at 6pm for the past few weeks, they read out six names, a Kapa Haka group sing and a bugle player plays the last post. The kids are coming with me because I think its important for them to remember too. Even though I never met these men, I have a feeling its going to be quite moving, so better pack a few tissues just in case.......
