Evening all, bet you didn't expect to see me tonight! To take my mind off another cruddy day at work, I've been thinking about some challenges today that I wanted to take part in - so when I got the offer of a lift home rather than having to slum it on the bus, I grabbed the chance with both hands and was home in half an hour instead of the usual hour! Which has given me time to play, yay!
So, for this week's SIMON SAYS STAMP (Father's Day/Male Card) challenge and this week's LILI OF THE VALLEY (Punch It Up) challenge and the CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS (Cute Bear/Animal) challenge, here is my card:
So, what have I used? Here's a list for you:
Image: Lili Of the Valley No 7 Bear
Papers: Dovecraft Masculine Collection - I cut a few of the stars out to use as embellies too
Die Cut: Nestabilities Stars
Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Other: Peel-off borders (black and gold) from stash and ProMarkers for matting star
I used an old cosmetics brush and the DI Antique Linen ink pad to distress the background behind Bear, I quite like the aged, mottled look.
Not sure now if the papers are just that bit too busy but I'm still quite pleased with it!
