Hi there blog friends - and a massive hello to my new followers. I had 32 followers last time I looked and now I have 45 - wow I had better sort out some Candy for when I reach the magic 50!! I already have some things for the prize but I don't have any pics - you will just have to trust me!!! lol!
Before I have a week away from the laptop, I am posting a card that I made a while ago. I made it because (at the time) I had never made a bluey-green card and I had just received the Core-dinations Whitewash Collection pad. I loved it so much that I had to have a play with it there and then. I had also just received some Sarah Kay rub-ons - I have now used these twice! The card and floral paper that I used was from my stash - unfortunately I have lost the labels - the dies are Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and also Oval Window. I cut two windows and then took out the middle cross section of each one before cutting them in half.
When the window pieces were embossed I gave them a quick rub over with some glass/sand paper. The whitewash effect came off leaving a beautiful greeny colour underneath (I think this one is called Watering Can). I put everything together as in the picture and added some little glittered roses! I put a ribbon down the side - this is from the Vintage collection that Sue Wilson has shown on C & C.
I was quite pleased with the colours, simply because I don't make 'greeny' cards normally.
I hope you like this card - I would have preferred it if I had stamped it and then coloured it, but at the time I didn't have the Sarah Kay stamps only the rub-ons.
I am entering this card in the following challenges
