WWC169 – Charlotte’s “All About Occasions” Challenge

Hello again

Welcome to another great  challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday.  This week, the talented Charlotte is hosting the “All About Occasions” Challenge.

  • P1070419

My card uses the beautiful image from 49 and Market: Designer Series – Gabi’s Haute Couture Stamp Set.

I began by stamping the image in black Versafine Ink onto white card stock.

After putting some Distress Ink and some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders on my mat and spritzing it lightly with water, I used some thin acetate to pick up some ink and transfer it to the card front.  The colour was slowly built up until I was happy with the placement and depth of colour.  I also added some clear Wink of Stella to a few sections of her tutu where I thought it could use a little more shimmer!

It is so difficult to pick up the shine in a photo!  It’s so pretty IRL!

The front panel was then cut using Cutplorations – Wonky Rectangle Dies.

The sentiment is from Altnew’s ‘Fresh Freesia’.

Please be sure to check out the wonderful inspiration over at our blog!

I’m looking forward to seeing all your clever creations.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
