Vintage Birthday Card

This is another card I have made today. The colours on the image aren't really that bright.

I used another of my new Tuscan Rose stamps for this card and stamped it using sepia versafine ink onto white cardstock. I used distress inks to colour the stamped image and highlighted the stop watch using glossy accents. I mounted the image onto gold mirror card and then onto white card. I edged the white card with gold ink. The backing paper I used is from one of my DCWV stacks and I put this onto my white card blank, leaving just a little of the white around the edge. For the sentiment I used a gold peel-off (well I've got tons of them and need to use them up!). I put the peel-off onto a piece of the DCWV paper and then mounted it onto white card and then gold mirror card. Just to finish the card off I went around the main card with my gold ink pad.

Lost in France - SS Week 20

Well what lovely weather we have today, the sun is out and I've been crafting :-)

This card I made for the Hels Sunday Stampers Challenge "This week the challenge theme is France. As usual, the challenge is to use stamps, inks, paints, mixed media etc to make your creation, be it a card, ATC, Scrapbook page...the choice is yours".

I used one of my new Tuscan Rose stamps and stamped using black versafine ink onto white card. I then coloured the image using distress inks and cut n dry foam. I stamped the word PARIS again and cut it out and covered it with 3d gloss. I then stamped the quote, which again is a Tuscan Rose stamp and coloured it using distress ink. I then mounted the stamped images onto gold mirror card. I used a piece of scrapbook paper, which I edged with gold ink and then mounted it onto the white card. I added the two stamped images and then used a large gold brad to attach a prima artful collage flower to the card.

As this weeks challenge on Daring Cardmakers is to use a quote on your card, then hopefully this card will qualify for that challenge also :-)

Also, this weeks challenge on My Time To Craft is to use brads or eyelets on your card, so I'm going to sneek this one in :-)
