Last night I received orders for 5 cards, so today I shall be busy with my thinking cap on for what to do! I have been making cards for this one lady in Ireland for some years, ever since she received one of my cards from a friend, but before I begin on that little lot, here is a card for the challenge at CAS Watercolour.
I guess I chose an easy option with red and green!
I used a die from Alexandra Renke, which I cut from white card and then spritzed with water before adding Distress Inks and watching the reaction as it moved through the water. I decided not to put the die cut pieces from the petals back in this time, I'm not sure which I prefer... in or out!
The kraft circle was a left over from another project but I thought it made a good backdrop for the flowers. I hope it is permitted to have this extra colour!
The sentiment is from Altenew.
To make the inchies on this card I began by stencilling the pink dots, then I stamped the script and added some splats in a deep pink colour. I stuck on some small Alexandra Renke die cut flowers so that they would appear off centre on each piece and then die cut the inchies with a Sizzix die. I distressed the edges with a little gold Brilliance ink and added a tiny pearl to the centre of each flower. The border die is from Stamplorations. I have scrawled 'A little sentimental' on the carrier sheet for the sentiment stamps, but sadly not the manufacturer. I don't have space to keep my stash in its original packaging, which is squirreled away elsewhere, so from time to time I'm at a loss to identify some of it. If anyone can recognise it I would be glad to know. I have looked on the internet without success.
It's another attempt for the CAS Mix Up challenge but once more I'm not really satisfied with the overall effect so I may try one more time!
