I have done it at last - I have made a card for a challenge (i've got to do it one at a time so that I don't get confused ). The Challenge that I have chosen for my first effort is CD Sunday and the topic is "Paisley"All I have to do now is find out how to post it on the challenge website Eeeeekkkkk.
I have used an 8x8 square card. The backing paper is from a free Docraft CD that came with a magazine a few years ago. It is black and white but I printed it on pearlescent card to give it a silvery effect.
The bottom left corner I stamped and embossed leaves using a Creative Expression stamp , this doesn't show up very well on the photograph
The centre mat is a Cuttlebug embossing folder matted with silver Miri board. The sentiment is a Clarity stamp . As the Challenge was launched on Armistice Sunday I decided to add poppies, the stamped image has been done using Lavinia stamps and coloured with mica paint which unfortunately doesn't show up very well on the photograph. The sentiment and the image have been matted with red textured paper. The poppy was made by me using the same red paper and sprayed with Crafters Companion silver glitter spray. The card is finished with a red ribbon
