I hope you're all well?
I've had a very busy, interesting and exciting week! I'm gonna spill all in a separate post (and I'm gonna have some blog candy too, sure why not?!) so make sure to check back a little later to see!
It's terrible when you have a few days doing something different and it really puts you off track. It takes ages to get back into your routine again too. Not that I ever really have a proper "routine"!
So helping to put me back on track again is a new challenge from the Pink Team at Eclectic Ellapu!
We have a fab new challenge for this week from our lovely boss lady Elaine with a theme of...
Isn't it fab to have something different to try?! I have never made anything in this style before so it was a challenge, but I have always loved the style of both Deco and Nouveau. Part of my inspiration for this comes from the first thing I bought when I was old enough to have a credit card and is my Mackintosh chair. I always wanted to get a full set but I don't know if you can get them anymore so one will have to do me!
Here's my card:
The stamp is called Glasgow Rose by Woodware (yep, it's a wood-mounted stamp so I had to dig for it!) and there is very little colouring to do on it! I used my copics and coloured the roses with R20, the leaves with YG95 and a little bit of shading with C0.
I matted onto a layer of pink card (which is hard to see) and a layer of black card and I cut strips of the black card to make the design which gives the card some great texture. I worked out what I wanted to do before I started making the card and printed the sentiment so it would fit in the design. (The font is called AR Bonnie)
I did the design again on the inside along with a LOTV stamped sentiment.
This is nothing like what I would usually make, but I really like it. I thought about colouring some of the squares pink, but decided not to. I might do it yet!
Make sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations at Eclectic Ellapu, they have made a great job of fulfilling the task of this theme!
