Melissa and the DT at CASology are celebrating 100 challenges this week … many congratulations ladies … and thank you so much for all your hard work and incredible inspiration … here’s to the next 100! Here’s my champagne bubbly ‘Celebrate’ card …
This is the second version … the first was going really well till I messed it up by fiddling with it at way beyond a reasonable time last night. Note to self for the future … go to bed and sleep … the creative brain works much better when it’s rested!
I used Simon Says Stamp’s Falling Snow stencil to create the champagne bubbles on a white card panel (upside down … the bubbles are rising!) and coated them with Wink of Stella. The celebrate was cut using Mama Elephant dies … each letter has four layers of yellow and one of bubbles, stacked together. I adhered the bubble panel to the card base, the stacked letters floated their way into place and I added a strip of yellow card at the side, coated with Wink of Stella. To give a golden glow to the the celebrate, I tapped it gently with the same sponge used for the stencilling, without adding any more ink. IRL it’s all very sparkly and glimmery … much better than the earlier mess … which I’m far too ashamed to show you!
ETA: Oops, forgot I was going to link up to SSS Work It Wednesday, where we’re playing with Simon’s Exclusives … mine’s the stencil.
I’d like to say a very warm welcome this evening to two new friends and followers … non blogging but blog wandering Kit, and Chriss from Botanical Café, who I’m sure many of you know. If you’ve not visited Chriss before, have a meander over and absorb all the varied and amazing creativity that’s on offer! Welcome, ladies, and thank you 🙂
I have another card ready to post later … dinner first though! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and wonderful comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
