Tuesday Talk

Last month I was lucky enough to have my card chosen as winner of the CASEplorations challenge so today I'm sharing a card I made for their June challenge. And since it uses dies as its focal point I'm also entering it into Happy Little Stampers challenge.

I love that sewing frame die and the soft gentle colours of the inner circle and they were my starting point for my card. Here it is then:

I used an inside/outside stitched circle die for my frame and cut it twice, once from gold and once from the base card so that I could inlay it. I brushed a little blue onto the inner circle and stamped a few background elements and the sentiment before popping it back into the golden frame.

The flamingo was stamped, coloured and die cut before being adhered with foam pads to the side of the frame.

Stamps: Avery Elle, Flamingo
Inks: SU, smoky slate, marina mist
Promarkers: cool grey 5, pale pinkl, coral
Dies: Averey Elle, Flamingo; Die-namics, inside/outside titched circles

So pleased to have your company here on my blog today, thanks for your time. And keep crafting!
