I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and have started your week in a wondeful way. Part one of my move is finally dealt with, and I spent the weekend unpacking and organising my stuff! But today I wanted to make my DT card for BnW challenge, as it was decided by our lovely Lils, and I just loved it.
Lilian, or Lils as we call her (BTW it was her Birthday yesterday.. so go and leave her some love!!)wants to see red on our creations this week, and obviously you have to have a BNW image on your card.
I used the cute Eden with Teddy from the latest Collection "Forever Young". Isn't she darling??
I coloured the image with Copics, and used some gorgeous BG paper, together with some left over scraps I had in my folder. Around the image I stamped a Stempelglede grunge stamp, with Tattered Rose Distress ink. You can see the lovely swirls sticking out :) I added some square brads in the corners of the image, ribbon, a red handbag charm, a Birthday Wishes ticket, and a flower treatment that this cutie deserves! The big rose was sprayed with both Pearls and Tattered rose Glimmer mists, and I touched the edges with a red Copic. The lovely ticket sentiment is a wonderful print out from a download I did from Caz's blog. I just changed some of the sentiments, to suit my cards, and voila! I didn't have Kraft cardstock, but I printed them out on normal white paper and on this one I stamped another from the Stempelglede grunge stamps, with Antique Linen. I like how it turned out :)
I do hope you'lll join us on the BnW Blog for this lovely challenge. I'm sure lots of you have some of the wonderful BnW stamps! So why not use them, and be in a chance to win a fantastic price??
And if you don't own any BnW stamps yet, now is the time to grab some! So visit Summer's Store, I'm sure you'll find lots of lovely Elisabeth Bell images to suit your tastes.
Have a lovely week my friend. Thank you for visiting me today. I feel honoured by your visit, and thank you for sharing with me the gift of friendship. Before you move on, Andrea, from our lovely BnW team, is having wonderful candy on her blog. Click on the picture on my sidebar to be taken there!
