I have finally been able to sit and get crafty.. at long last.. I haven't had chance to join in with many challenges lately but when i saw that the
challenge blog was also letting Hanglers into their challenges.. well i just couldn’t resist..
and the Challenge is anything goes.. bonus..
here is my card, i think that i got a little carried away with the flowers on the side.. can’t win with me .. I either go really minimal with my embellishments or as you can see; over the top with them.. .
This is a larger 7” x 7” card and i used my Grande nestie ovals to cut image and mat.
I founds some Kraft card stock at long last.. yay.. from the craft island.. this Kraft is by jilly bean soup.. which i have just looked and they are not showing any at the mo.. but you can buy the life stories papers.. by my minds eye and just use the back if you just want the Kraft look.. (plus you can use the patterned side as well… bonus!) just a thought..
these papers that i have used for this card are by dcwv and are called linen closet stack.. i just love these papers, they are so so pretty.. must get another book of this cardstock i think.. i bought mine from my local hobby craft.
the flowers are a mixture of wild orchid crafts and prima. i added a little love charm with love written on it… and the with sentiment has been made using a dymo .. I found this really old one on eBay as it has three different font wheels including an italic one… (I bought one of the newer models that you can change the heads on and include the italic writing too but the letters don’t join together as well as the old machine that i bought and look staggered which i wasn’t impressed with….. just being an old fuss pot as always…)
also tucked in the flowers you will see a metal flowery thingy with brad that are from my stash, along with some Tim Holtz film strip.. that little piece was laying on my desk so i thought that i would pop it amongst the flowers.. hehe.
The image has been coloured with a combination of copics and white and blue prisma pencil..
I decided to alter a little Moleskine ruled cahier (journal)
to match my card.. along with it’s own box. with the addition of the magnolia do hickey die tag the papers are the same as the card..
and here is what this little set looks like all together..
Thank you for dropping by. take care, hugs Rach.xx
