Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and coping with the blustery winds if you're in England at the moment! This week at Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge we're challenging you to use die cuts and punches. I have wanted to try out a tent card for a while so opted for this this week. The outcome isn't exactly how I envisaged it so if anyone has any hints or tips on how to do these better than this please let me know!
Stamps: Magnolia Sitting Tilda with tulips
Magnolia Butterfly Background
Punches: Martha Stewart 3 Hydrangea (the flowers on the swing)
Papers: Magnolia green vintage quilt
Bazzil - ice white shimmer, vanilla
There's stardust stickles on the sun in the background.
The swing is made from hand cut bazil cardstock inked with walnut stain, then threaded with cord and some small wooden beads at the bottom. This is suspended on jump rings through the spellbinder scalloped circle.
The small hydrangea from the 3 hydrangea punch was used, and moulded by rolling the petals with an embossing tool until they curled. A small gem was added to the centre of each. The leaves are single petals cut from the hydrangea punch. (all a bit fiddly this!)
The window was cut with circular nestie, then a scolloped cicle placed over.
All of the images are coloured with DIs.
This week I have entered this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Spring/Easter
The Shabby Tea room: Spring Colours
Colour Create: Pastels
Craft Us Crazy: Happy Easter/Spring
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes
Just Magnolia/Hanglar and Stanglar: Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown: Spring
I look forward to any hints you might have, still not sure if I've done this correctly!
Have a fabby week.
Hugs. Katy. xxx
