Good morning lovelies! How are you today? I hope you are all fine and well. Did you have those wild winds last night? It was shocking here! I hope its not like that tonight as I'm hoping to take the girls on the village carol singing! Its night 1 of three tonight - and I'd like to do two of the three! We raise money for the homeless shelter in Lancaster. Its usually good fun too.
Tonight I'd like to show you shaun's card that I made for him - virtually all the stuff used on the card was from That Craft Place.
I started to make this card by creating the background - the cloud stamp is be Ditzie Designs which is the own brand at That Craft Place. I stamped this with versa and added white wow powders before heat setting. I then made up the background using the ombre technique as featured in the current craft stamper magazine. I used chipped sapphire, faded jeans and tumbled glass DI. Next I did more background stamping using a script stamp and a stamp from the sam poole steampunk christmas stamp set. Then I made the owls - using the sam poole wise friend stamp set - one was stamped onto a sheaf of paper that was like treebark - it may actually have been treebark. The second owl was stamped on the back of a brown envelope. Both were decoupaged up. I also stamped the leaves from the same stamp set then put the card together. The piece of wood came as part of my DT pack - as did the tree bark. Finally I added the hats to the owls and the sentiment. The hats came from a stamp set by Imagination Crafts.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
