Today Barb's scramble was at a very civilised time for me ~ 10.00am on a Sunday morning... I got my sleep in... had my fruit smoothie and was ready to play. Barb set a cool challenge... to use a flower and a die cut... you could combine and make it a flower die cut! I had a thought in mind... but it didn't really come to the fruition. But the card I did end up with was okay...
To start, I couldn't find my Neenah card so just used some card I had on hand. I coloured the Hero Arts Etched flowers with Copics but they bleed a bit. I tried to do the trimming of the image around the die... but think I need more practice with this. I pulled out a silver shimmery gate card. I stamped Hero Arts Magical background in Soft Pool for a subtle background. Layered the die cut onto the card.
Then I got a quick CAS mini card done. It is 4 1/4" x 3 3/4"
I used a Spellbinders die to make the card base. The Magical background was still on my desk so I inked it up with Brilliance Twilight ink ( nice and shimmery) I used a smaller die and before removing it, sponged on some of the ink. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts. The flower was in my box of pre-made flowers. I had used a stamp and purple ink onto some card and used a Spellbinders die to cut out the petals. It was perfect for the card.
It was a beautiful day here, so once I finished crafting, it was outside to enjoy it. I sat outside and read my book, and later in the afternoon, Hubby and I walked down to the beach. He had a couple of swims and I even ventured in.. first time this summer ( and it's all but finished) but Hubby says that it wasn't a real swim as I didn't get my hair wet.
Hope your weekend has been as much fun as mine
