Thank you (Paru’s Card Challenge)

 

P1070923

Hello and welcome

I’m thrilled to have been invited to be a Guest Designer for the wonderful Paru’s Card Making  Challenge for November!

The theme for November is ‘Thank You’, so I am sharing a card and a tag.

Tonight’s card features Altnew’s “Beautiful Day” stamp set which I have fussy cut after water colouring using Distress Ink. I love the idea of a simple monochromatic look to the image. It contrasts so well with the simple black and white background.

The black background section was cut using MFT Dienamics – Stitched Basic Edges.

The sentiment is Winnie & Walter –  The Big, The Bold and You die set.

The tag uses one of my all time favourite Penny Black wood mount stamp – Angel News.  It was one of my first stamps.

After water colouring with a combination of Distress Ink and Tombow pens, it was fussy cut and Wink of Stella added for some shimmer.

The tag was cut using MFT Die-namics  Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX and then dry embossed with Craft Concepts – ‘In Stitches’ EF.

The circle die uses Cuttlebug ‘Swiss Dots’ EF, then attached to the fancy circle die cut, (Unfortunately, I don’t remember where it is from), which was added to the tag with raised tape, along with the Angel.

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.

To finish, I added some sheer ribbon to the top.

I love how this tag came together.  I hope you do too.

Please head back to Paru’s blog to check out all the great inspiration and join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by

Have a great weekend

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.
