Saturday 19th May

Another rainy day so another day in the craft room :-) At least this awful weather means that I get some challenges done, I am on quite a roll at the moment

The following card II would like to enter for -

  • Rainbow Lady's challenge - Lets get inky
  • Crafty Ann's challenge - Hide and seek
 I must admit Cynthia, my fingers and nails certainly did get inky with this one, in fact they were filthy :-)


For this card I used 2 5x5 card blanks. I folded the first one to make the easel and the second one to make the front opening card. I then took a 5x5 base card matted onto gold textured card and stamped it with stamps from Creative Expressions . I re stamped the label and the Bottle label  and distressed them using "old paper" and placed them using foam pads. The images were coloured with promarkers and the card was then distressed .The front panels were cut to size and matted onto gold textured card then stamped and gold embossed with stamps from Clarity. The images were coloured with Promarkers and the panels distresses. The base of the easel has gold ribbon in a criss cross pattern (it looks like silver in the picture) The label is from a Spelbinder die and the lettering done on the Cuttlebug
