I was part of a crafty playdate yesterday! Friends Tracey, Ardyth, Natasha, Steph and i got together for a day of food, laughter and stamping. We had lots of fun, and I even managed to get a little stamping done. ;) Which meant I had the raw materials to get FOUR (count 'em, four!) cards made today! Two are for challenges that end soon, so I'm sharing them now.
First up, a card for the Muse challenge ending tomorrow morning, where Anita Bowden is the current muse with this gorgeous card:
I was inspired by the layout, the beautiful flower image and the colours. I went with a negative version of the card:
I am in LOVE with this layered peony image! And also Tracey's MISTI, which allowed me to finally stamp a layered flower image (almost) perfectly. (So at least two things to add to my wish list...) Once home, I die cut the peony panel, added a sentiment, and used fun foam to pop it up on a dark purple card base.
Next, a card for the current Ellen Hutson Mix It Up challenge.
I mixed Ellen's mondo magnolia image with a sentiment by Savvy Stamps. The magnolia is coloured with Zig markers (yep, they're on my wish list, too). I think choosing the sequins took longer than anything else about this card! Although you can't tell in the pic, the main panel is layered on black glitter paper and then on a pale yellow card base.
All in all, a fun and productive weekend!
