A Sunday post from me - bet that's surprised you!


Bet you're surprised to see me today ... AND at an odd time too .. given that I normally post at 08:00 but ... in my defence ..... I only spotted the fab sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches this morning. With only a day left to enter the challenge and two cards on tomorrow's post already there seemed little left to do - except a Sunday post! So, here it is ....

My card
And a close up of the colour, gloss and sparkle!
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 300gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut fit at 13cm x 9½cm
  • One piece of red card cut to mat and 13½cm x 10cm
  • Carabelle hearts image (SA60156) stamped using Memento tuxedo black including once on to full coverage post it sheet which I then cut out to use as a mask
  • With the mask in place ... MFT splatter (DC52 - Abstract Art) used as a border and stamped using Memento rosebud ink
  • Crafty Impressions sentiment (PICST 073) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour, blended using Sansodor and paper stumps
  • Anita's dimensional gloss on the pink heart and Stardust stickles around the outside of the red hearts

I think that's taken care of hubby's Valentine's Day card anyway!
