Morning and welcome to Sunday morning

Morning all,

Hope your Sunday is progressing in an orderly fashion - well, for most of you anyway. A couple of good pals of ours moved on Friday and I imagine that they are still in a state of chaos and trying to emerge from their cocoon of boxes! GOOD LUCK chaps!

Yesterday saw me trying one of my personal nemesis' - a masculine card. Esther's technique was deployed again .......

Materials used:
  • 5" square 300gsm white card and matching envelope
  • 11½cm square black card panel
  • 11cm square white card panel
  • Stampers Anonymous diamond image inked in Versacolour ginger multiple times
  • Hero Arts "daisy" shaped inked several times in Versacolour gold
  • Inkadinkado Rockstar sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black
  • Inkadinkado guitar image (from the same set) inked in Memento cocoa
  • Faux crystal gemstones to finish

Here's the card I made for yesterdays themed challenge of CHRISTMAS PRESENTS as set by Karen on the Craft Mad and Loving It Design Team ....... hope you like it - I'm not sure I would exactly call it traditionally Christmas colours and patterns but I DO like it - AND it's another to add to my stack of Christmas cards ready for 2012!!

Materials used:
  • 300 gsm white C5 card and matching envelope
  • Green patterned paper/card from Costco pack of 360!!!
  • Black panel and two white panels cut using a fancy rectangle die from Go Kreate
  • Martha Stewart corner punch
  • Michaels red satin ribbon
  • Faux crystal gemstones
  • Black panel edged with versacolour silver
  • Middle panel (white) coloured using D.I. forest moss and then stamped using Stampers Anonymous check image inked in Brilliance thyme
  • LOTV image inked in Memento tuxedo black and coloured using pro markers, copics, copic atyou spica glitter pens and crystal stickles
  • I edged the image panel with a Faber Castell pitt pen once adhered to the green check panel too

And here's a close up of the twinkley bits

Happy Sunday everyone
