Hello Fellow Bloggers
Firstly I would also like to thank my latest followers, it means a lot to me to have you join me in my crafting exploits. I would also like to say Happy Canada Day to any fellow Canadians out there, hope you are enjoying your day.
I have two cards today, each for a different challenge or two.
CARD 1 - the criteria for this entry is twofold, one to create a Vintage card with the challenge being sponsored by the wonderful Hels Sheridan (http://scrapology-adventuresinscrapbooking.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/june-card-challenge-vintage.html).
The criteria for the second challenge using the same card is Challenge 66 - Fancy Folds which can be found over at (http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/) and this is my card:
CARD 2 - the criteria for this card is Hot Metal (http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/) for Challenge Week 208.
I think I have taken the hot metal part quite literally as you can see here:
The flower is made using Ranger foil tape sheets, which I attached to some thick white card, cut the flower using Tim Holtz tattered flower die and then embossed it with the TH metal look embossing folder. I coloured the flower and stem with alcohol inks. The central flower and gem are from my stash. I matted and layered the card with red mirri card and polkadot paper from my stash. The stamp is Penny Black's large Happy Birthday stamp. It is quite a large stamp and really needs a large card and this one is 8 inches square.
Two quite different cards, I enjoyed making them both.
If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them and I always try to repay the compliment. Hope you have a lovely day. Crafty hugs, Anne x
