Pretty Pansies For Altenew October 2017 Inspiration Challenge

For this month’s Altenew inspiration challenge,there were three soft colours and a beautiful card by Lydia Evans to get inspired by…I am usually quite reluctant to use light colours so this was actually quite a challenge for me…

Here is the beautiful inspiration card and colours…

I wanted my card to be slightly larger than my usual A2 size to accommodate the design properly so I created a card base that was 4&1/4″ x 6″….I then created the front panel from watercolour cardstock on which I applied water first then randomly added Gansai Tambi watercolours in green,light pink and gold shades…once dry,I cut it to size and adhered it to my card front…

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the Altenew Pretty Pansies layering stamp using Altenew crisp dye inks…for the flowers I have used coral berry,cotton candy and peach perfect and gold heat embossed the top layers and for the leaves I used parrot,bamboo and forest glades shades and decided not to add gold heat embossing on them…I cut these flowers and leaves out with my scissors as I didn’t want a white border around them…
I then used the coordinating dies and die cut the flowers and leaves from gold foil cardstock which I have embossed using the Darice polka dot embossing folder…and now that all the elements of my card were ready,I adhered them to my card front using glue and adhesive foam squares in various thickness to add some interest and depth…

For the sentiment,I first used a mirror stamp to create a solid colour base for the labels..I used cotton candy and peach perfect here and heat embossed the sentiment on the top layer…and finally I added a few gold Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Camp Create Day 3 – Background Bonanza

I am quite excited for Day 3 at MFT Camp Create as it features the kind of backgrounds that I love to make for my cards…so I went ahead and created not one but two cards with brightly coloured backgrounds as the main focus…

I have used MFT stencils and the same shades of Distress Oxide inks for both my cards …I used the Mini Cloud Edges and English Brick Wall stencils and the following shades of Distress Oxide inks – wilted violet,salty ocean,twisted citron,spiced marmalade,picked raspberry and candied apple…

For my first card I choose a black card base and a white top panel…I used the brick stencil for this one and sponged in all the colours onto the front panel and the die cut it before adhering it onto the front of my card…

I die cut the word amazing from black cardstock and black craft foam as well and heat embossed the rest of the sentiment on a black strip using white embossing powder…I then die cut a heart from Vellum and lightly sponged it with red ink…once all the elements were adhered to my card front,I added black Nuvo drops to embellish it and the card was ready..

I have been planning to try out coloured clouds ever since I saw one of my IG friend Dana share a fabulous card with multi coloured clouds in the background…so my second card has been inspired by her – but since we had to make bright backgrounds for today’s challenge,I went all out with the colours…I used the MFT Mini Cloud Edges stencil and Distress oxide inks to print the clouds all over a white front panel..I adhered this panel to a white card base..

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the castle and sentiment using wilted violet Distress Oxide ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder….I cut them out and adhered to the card front using adhesive foam…and to embellish my card I have used pink sequins…
