My card today is for Anita who has an amazing blog, My Papercraft World. Anita is an inspirational crafter and a wonderful blog friend who gives so many of us oodles of support. We missed her birthday cause she kept it quiet so Bev at Happy Dance has organised this belated birthday party and Darnell at djkardkreations is hosting the Linky party. Bev and Darnell's blogs are wonderful too! Well Anita, here is my card for you - I really hope you like it!
To create the coloured strip, I inked through a section masked off with stencil tape. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, splashed with water then stamped with the Spiced Malmalade, not re-inking each time for contrast. The leaf stamp is from a Sheena Douglass set Only Words - Heart. I then removed the tape and stamped the Clarity Stamp Edelweiss with black Versafine and embossed with clear detail powder. I coloured it in with a combination of Distress Inks and Promarkers then went over the image with clear Wink of Stella for sparkle. The sentiment is by Hobby Art.
I just want to say 'THANK YOU' Anita for all your inspiration and support. It means a lot! I hope you enjoy your belated party! Happy Birthday!!! Luv' Christine xxx
I think this card is suitable to be entered into the Clean and Simple Challenge over at The Paper Players. I just spotted this challenge at Darnell's blog! There are some cool DT cards and other fab entries. Pop over and have a look! Also it fits in with this weeks Sunday Stamper Week 299 at Hel's Fab Blog which is 'Happy'. I think this card qualifies as to me, its a very happy flower, its a happy birthday card and the colours scream happy to me too! I hope Hels agrees! xx
