This has meant not a lot of card making has been going on and I've missed out on a lot of challenges I wanted to enter. Last night though I was determined to do a bit of colouring and managed to turn it into a card.
I started off by stamping and heat embossing the faceted background stamp in gold on a piece of water colour paper. I then used my Ziggies along with some water and small brush to add the colour to each triangle and drag it out with the brush. While it was drying I die cut the frame from a piece of grey CS and twice from white CS. I glued these all together with a piece of acetate in-between the top two layers.
I added lots of foam tape to the back of the frame and made a pile of round and star shaped gold sequins on top of the coloured piece. The frame was adhered over the sequins and I trimmed off any excess water colour paper. This shaker was then adhered to the card front. I made a small banner from the same grey CS, stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in gold and used double-sided tape to stick to the shaker.
The frame die is from Pretty Pink Posh, as well as the gold round sequins. The sentiment and background stamp are both from Neat and Tangled 'Faceted'.
I have two other challenges I would like to enter:
Little Tangles Challenge # 65
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Shake it Up)
I have one more card to post and then its off to bed. It was Phoebe's 11th birthday today and she was sick with a migraine. Not the best way to spend the day but we got to spend the day together watching dvd's and eating chocolate, so not too bad after all.
