Off to a barbecue!
Just a quick card before we go to join friends for a barbecue lunch.
This is a combination of the sketch from 365 Cards, the colour theme from Pile it on and the recipe from Use it!
Pile it on asked for purple, well this is a bit purply, and it is combined with other challenges which is also a stipulation of that blog!
The recipe from Use it is
1/Use patterned paper scraps you've had for more than 1 year!
4/Use a rub-on
5/Optional: Use foam dots
I used Pink Petticoat paper which was printed ages ago and has been curling up in the drawer ever since.
The chipboard has sat in its tin for quite a while too waiting for an opportunity to be used.
The sentiment rub-on is also a first time use from EZ Rub-ons.
I have used foam dot for the centre of the flowers but I think that they will be coming off as I don't like the effect.
The chipboard was coloured white then shaded with a whisper pen before being sprayed with a little Spray & Sparkle. Thanks to Jackie for the tip about spraying in a box to avoid twinkle going everywhere! The over-flower is Cuttlebug.
The sketch is from 365 Cards today.
The flourish bits were left over from a card I made yesterday, using the flourish to make an aperture.
The soiree last night was great fun and I'm just off to make a dip to take with me to the BBQ for lunch.
