oh what to do! lol
I managed to get a bit of time last night to have a go at 3rd Sugar Bowl Challenge, this time the theme is "Love and Romance"
I used some pink core'dinations card from the Black Magic collection as a card blank - its very effective with the black on the outside and the pink on the inside of the card. I used the swiss dots embossing folder to emboss the front of the card in the cuttlebug, I then distressed the raised areas and the edges with the Basic Grey files. I coloured the image "Claudia the artist" with letraset promarkers, and watercolour pencils to do the shading. The image, the mat and the greeting spot was cut using the labels 1 nestabilities. I added 3 red papermania brads to the bottom right hand corner of the image. Distressed the edges of the mat with the BG files. Added a rub-on to the greeting spot. I used some heart shaped metal shapes from papermania as charms, attaching them with thin gold-coloured wire and black brads from papermania.
That's my valentines card for Graham done - woohoo
I struggled a wee bit to begin with, with this challenge as I don't have any particularly lovey dovey or valentine-y stamps. But I thought Claudia has a kinda sexy alluring feel to her so that would do just fine.
