Day 7 – 30 Days Of Card Making
Fresh, bright and uplifting – that was the result of today’s creation.
Regular readers of this blog will know why I am doing this mini challenge in order to reunite my mojo with my craft space. To follow the full journey, you can find all related post in the 30 Days Of Card Making archive.
Ok, on with today’s creation.
The background was actually an experiment for an earlier card that didn’t turn out the way “we” had hoped. On approaching craft space today it showed mojo and I this bright fresh background and inspiration struck!
FYI, the background was simply inking and scrunching the paper repeatedly. It was then squished through a die cutting machine to flatten it out.
Mojo chose a set of stamps that had everything we needed. The pattern for the background, the flower for the foreground and the sentiment.
All were stamped out but mojo fell flat as it didn’t like the “samey” look to the colours.
“We” therefore smeared, splatted and splurged our way through various mediums until we had a sampler that we liked and used to stamp out, and cut out, a second layer for the flower. This was stuck to the front of the card using foam pads to raise it up.
Ok, a whole week done! Going Ok so far…
