A Card for Kennys Challenge - "Swirls and Pearls"
Good Morning Girls, well the weather has changed once more it looks as though we are in for an early Autumn lets hope its not going to be a bad winter after last years one Im not sure any of us wants one like that. I meant to tell you we had a phone call from New Zealand on Saturday from my brother in law, he lives in Christchurch and had been effected by the earthquake, he had a cupboard fall on his car, not sure what other damage he had but Im sure it wasnt much fun for him or his neighbours as the electric and other main services had been turned of because of it.
Anyway todays card has been created for Kennys challenge which is Swirls and Pearls, Ive used this young madam to colour and then cut her out with the new Nestabilitie Labels Die Fourteen, Ive used the die to draw around to create the mount as the next one up was to big for it. The sentiment is one of stash ones and this was stamped onto white card inked around the edge and mounted onto a piece of blue card. I should have said before mounting the image up Ive used a small florish stamp around the edge with some catseye inkpads, then mounted it up on the blue mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and Ive used the papers from Donna's Extreme Designs Vol.1 these are all blue papers, the first one is an all over flower and swirl one, and the second is a butterfly swirl one, the third one is a dark blue paper with yet more swirls on and this one was cut in a strip and Ive used one of my arch border punches on it both sides, then ran a piece of the blue pearlescent card through my cuttlebug with a swirl embossing folder, this was then stuck across the middle of the third paper.
Ive then positioned my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive created two swirls with my bazzil basics template and some pearl gems, one at the top on the right and another at the bottom on the left. The last thing is the blue rose bouquet at the top on the left which has been stuck on with some silicone glue and a couple of pearl pins stuck in the centre and a blue ribbon wrapped around the bunch.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
