Can you believe we are halfway through June already!! Not that you would have known it from the weather last weekend, I got so chilly and was so desparate to get the washing dried I turned the heating on, and that shouldn't be allowed in June!!
Anyway, enough of my prattling on, being all British and moaning about the weather :-)
This week over at Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge it it the turn of the lovely Tams, and she would like to see
somewhere on your card or project. It can either be the main focus or as an accent, as I chose to do.
Birthday's, Anniversary's and more... and it doesn't have to be a special one... if you want to make a happy 47th Birthday card, go ahead!!
Anyway, I made a card for a colleague who has just turned 50, I'm a teensy bit late, but I think she'll forgive me!!
I decided to colour up Winestool Nikki as she hasn't been inked up in a while, then teamed her with a really elegant paper by The Paper Company "Secret Garden Showers of Flowers"
I stamped a panel with a text stamp and embossed it with holographic embossing powder, and embossed another panel of the "Love Potion" Bazzill that I have used throughout with my Swiss Dots embossing folder, and stitched round all of the panels with some lavender thread. I tied an oversized bow with some Orchid Berrisfords ribbon.
I've used a selection of flowers and cut Nikki out with my Marianne Creatables die, I've added stickles to Nikki's dress and shoes, and made "50 Today" using the really versatile Sentimental Numbers, and distressed the panels with some old inkpads I found in my drawer.
I kept the inside simple, and used the It's Only Words Sentiment set
I'd like to enter these challenges please!!
Thanks for stopping by, looking forward to seeing your projects
