I hope you are enjoying this lovely bank holiday Sunday. I am sorry for the late blog today but I have discovered Pride and Prejudice (the BBC series) on Drama so I have done my ironing and enjoyed the company of the wonderful Mr Darcy.
Anyway enough of all that, today's card is this one -
As you can see it is a shaped easel card made using Spellbinder's grand ovals nesties and yellow centura pearl. I folded a piece of card stock in half and cut the nestie leaving part of the die off the card to create a spine and then I scored and folded one side of the card blank in half to create the easel. I cut another oval from the same centura pearl and added it to one half of the folded card blank. I then cut two smaller ovals in green coredinations and two of the next size down in yellow coredinations. I embossed the two yellow ovals using a dotty embossing folder and sanded back to reveal the core. I then matted and layer the ovals to the card base as shown.
The image is from the Joanna Sheen Happy Hoppers range and is called You did it. I stamped one of the main images from the set and also one of the smaller images for the stopper. I have coloured it with the following Promarkers -
- rabbits - warm grey1, warm grey 3, warm grey 4, pastel pink, sandstone,cocoa, sunflower, gold, ice grey 3, ice grey 5 and black.
- wings - ivory and blush
- flower - pine, lush green, yellow and canary
- sky - pastel blue
- shadow - ice grey 1
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
The challenge at As you like blog is "favourite shape and why". I love to use ovals especially the Floral Ovals dies as I find them very versatile because you can change the orientation and they are more interesting than a rectangle.
Well that's all from me today - sorry about the long post. See you all tomorrow
