I hope you have all had a good weekend. I spent friday with some crafty friends,the fabulously talented Anne and Lady Limmette herself, Chrissie, at Make It, Farnborough, and of course there was quite a bit of money spent on new stash, and on Sunday it was more crafting time and lots of natter with Anne. Thank you Anne - I had a lovely time.
It is the last week of our Romance theme at Make My Monday, and this week we want to see Diamonds and Flourishes on your projects. You will see that I have decided to treat the idea of 'diamonds' slightly differently to those of my of my Deezine team mates, and I have not used anything sparkly Please pop across to the challenge blog to see all the team members fabulous creations.
This card was produced during my crafting day with Anne, and I am really pleased with it. My base card is from the Tim Holtz distress pad. The first layer is covered with distress inks and then the flourish stamped over the top in the same colours. The second layer is a Crafters Template in Diamonds. Again the same method, covered the card in distress inks and then used the template over the top. The image is from Art Journey whose stamps I adore. The edges have been stamped with the same flourish as on the background. All the background colouring has been done with Inkylicious brushes for a softer feel. The edges on all the layers have been closed in with Dusty Concord. The flower and leaf have been die-cute, and put together with a moonstone brad.
