When I made my first panel-on-an-angle card last week, with all the embossed lines and watercolouring, there was a piece of the panel left over, that I carefully cocooned so I could use it in future! Well, the future arrived a bit quicker than I expected … here …
Those who saw the earlier card will know that the stripes are an Annabelle Stamps border, stamped a few times, heat embossed in white and watercoloured. I adhered black strips to the angled part and mounted the panel on the card base. The hello is from Avery Elle, cut four times in white and once in black, stacked and clear embossed. What look like trendy enamel dots are brads with their legs cut off! This is not a colour combo I’m that comfortable with … and card puts me in mind of mens’ striped shirts … but it’s a Good Thing every so often to get a bit uncomfortable … you never know where it will lead!
I’m playing along with …
Make The Day Special – Sketch (I flipped it)
Catered Crop – Manly Man (for the first time)
Simon Says Stamp Monday – Paint (watercoloured stripes)
ETA: Moxie Fab World – Wonderful Words Challenge (word dies)
I was also planning on joining in with The Card Concept (colours) … oops, got the timing on that one soooo wrong!
Thanks so much to everyone who took the trouble to tell me about using Versamark ink (for embossing) with dye ink, after my last post. Being able to double ink instead of having to double stamp with a stampamajig is going to be so much easier!
As some of you will know, Feedly is offline at the moment due to a Denial Of Service Attack … I have all my follows and updates delivered by Feedly so I’m a bit lost this evening without you all. I’m guessing some of you won’t be reading this because of it! I’ll be round to visit as soon as I can (roughly translated as when Feedly is back up again) … in the meantime, I’ll just do some wandering … and may see you there! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
