This is it, my 7th and final entry for the Winnie and Walter 4th Birthday Bash. I've had so much fun going thru all of my W&W stash, using sets that haven't seen love for a while and having such cool theme's to get my imagination spinning out of control!! And I even managed to make cards that could be entered in every single challenge, that's a first!
This last challenge is the Comeback Challenge with Taheerah. She is wanting you to CASE a card by one of The Talent and put your own spin on it. I found a card that I loved the minute I saw it last June (2017) by the amazing Mayuri:
My card is fairly similar to hers (I loved the design so much!!) but I added my own theme and die-cuts to change it up a little.
I started off by die-cutting a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS with the large rectangle die from W&W 'Essentials: Audreys Cutaways'. I then heat embossed Christmas images from W&W 'Happy Owlidays with Evelin T Designs' and W&W 'In Bloom: Frenchys Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez' in the same layout on the die-cut panel. Using a mix of Gansai Tambi watercolours and Distress Inks I very roughly painted over each image, using a darker colour to colour the image itself. Mayuri added black details to her images (which looks so much better) but I wanted mine to be softer.
Once the paint had dried, I stamped sentiments under each image from the same W&W 'In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez' set and popped the panel on the card front with foam tape.
I stamped the 'joy' (from the same W&W 'In Bloom' set) on some more Strathmore CS and heat embossed in gold. This was cut out with the matching die and put on foam tape. And to finish off I glued on a few sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I'm also going to link this to the W&W Grid Challenge with Keren and also the Die Challenge with Lydia.
And will also link to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where the theme is 'Make your own Background'.
Whew, thats it, its over!! No more cards today, you (and I) can all have a rest...until I get ideas for another challenge. Lets hope that inspiration takes a few days to arrive.....Thanks so much for your patience and really hope you enjoyed all my cards!!
