IAAS Lace and Pearls

'Lace and Pearls' is the theme set by Jane over at International Art and Soul so come and show us what you can do,

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK. I used a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder for the background and I matted it on to Papermill's maroon card as the base. The maroon lace emblem is by Craft Box UK and makes the perfect focal point. The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted Stamp and was stamped with my burgundy Promarker. I cut it with a Spellbinder die and then used the same Promarker to colour the fancy edge so that it would stand out against the white background. The pearl border is by Hobbycraft and I set it down the left side of the base mat.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes

That's it for this challenge. I'll see you again soon.

IAAS Ecology, Environment, Conservation

This theme was set by Sall 'Ecology, Environment, Conservation' . Please come along and join us at International Art and Soul.

My card blank is 7x7 by Craft UK. The backing paper is by PaperArtsy and I matted it on to Papermill's dark brown card as the base mat. I stamped the image in Memento Ink in cocoa but I have no idea who made the stamp. I bought it at Ally Pally a few years ago. I chose not to colour the image  and after cutting it into a rectangle I used Distress Ink on the edges. Then it was set to the right of the base mat leaving some of the beautiful leaves on show. I added three wooden flowers, from Create and Craft many years ago, to the panel of leaves.
