Morning all. How're you doing? Hope you're okay! I'm having trouble with blogger - well its not blogger its my computer - when I try to load up pictures into a post it doesn't want to know and just doesn't do it - now luckily there is another computer in the house so I can save my pictures on my memory stick and go and use other said computer - but its very annoying!!!! I hope I find a way around it soon!!!!
Todays card has been made with a few challenges in mind. Over at the Sunday stamper the theme is diamonds - so I've used some sparkle medium and an Imagination crafts mask and added diamonds. At our creative corner the theme is words - so I've got bookprint, stamped print and also the words at the top of the card (from a word stamp set by dylusions) . Countryview Crafts are also doing sayings - so I've got the words at the top of the page. And at the Fashionable stamping challenge the theme is bookprint/script so I've got that. Crafty Individuals also has an open theme this month - the focal stamp is from them.
The Crafty Individuals fairy was stamped with sepia Archival onto a background I created using antique linen distress stain and a spritz of water. The flowers were made using the 6 petal flower from the tattered florals die set via the method shown on Hels blog here. I also dipped them into hot UTEE in the meltpot to give the high shine faux porcelain look. The butterfly is a crafty emblie that got the sparkle medium treatment.
The back of the card was distressed with tea dye and then I used a script stamp and the tea dye again to overstamp. The sparkle medium is both antique bronze and diamond - although most of the diamond has been covered by the florals.
