Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight is hosted by Kim and it’s a Recipe challenge. Kim would like to see you use 1 Image (preferably stamped), 2 Backing Papers and 3 Embellishments, and the embellishments MUST include at least one heart. Kim also requires you to tell her in your post how you met the challenge, so your 1,2,3 list.
Mine is as follows
1 Image – Abigail Apple from Kraftin’ Kimmie coloured with promarkers
2 Backing Papers from the Basic Grey Out of Print pad, both of which I have inked around the edges to draw the colours in more
3 Embellishments 1 Heart Brad, 1 Apple Brad and 1 Tiny Crystal Flower
The Sentiment is part of the stamp set. The nestie shape was cut from plain white card and I edged it with both Pear Tart Memento Ink and Festive Berries DI. I also went around the edge on top of the ink with a white Sakura pen.
I used the same gel pen to highlight some parts of the image, most notably the apples.
The card itself is made with a Go Kreate die.
I enjoyed this challenge as it makes a nice change not to feel the need to ‘throw everything on it’, which a lot of us tend to do these days, and leads the eye more to the image I think, but that’s just my personal opinion.
