Lofty's Garden


Morning folks...can you believe I've actually managed to upload a card today...lol
Here I used some of my beautiful new basic grey papers which I added some additional ink to around the edge and punched a hole for my brad that hold the sign in place. I stamped my sign on white card stock, trimmed, then mounted onto a trimmed piece of textured cardstock. Punched two holes in the corners and threaded through some fibre which is held in place with brads. Attached it to the paper in the same manner, then layered onto a white base card. Next up I took a strip of textured cardstock, again inked the edges and attached to the base card. Used my nesties to cut a brown scalloped circle again from textured cardstock and also a white circle to fit inside. Stamped my Lofty image on the white circle and then water coloured using Sakura Stardust (dark & deep colours). Once dry I layered my image onto the scalloped circle and attached it all to the base card using 3d foam pads. Finally to finish off I added some beautiful Prima e-line flowers and card candy as they matched with the flowers I had water coloured on the image.
Oh well... guess that's enough play time for me just now... time to get back to business... let's see.... yes, better start with a quick clean around the house, followed by a trip to Asda then back here to get on with some more cards...
Will pop back later hopefully with another little piece of candy giveaway but in the meantime... have a happy day crafting....
Toodles.
