Design Team Make - "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" #34 (May 2019)
The first of the month means there is another new challenge on the "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" which always offers an "Anything Goes (ATG)" challenge. If you have a spare moment, please do pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous makes by my fellow design team colleagues and maybe enter the challenge yourself.
I started by preparing a background of Distress Inks on a Gelli Plate using the following colours: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. My friend had given me an intricate paper cut overlay, (a bit like net but in paper), so I stuck that down over the pretty background colours.
Using another section of the same Gelli Print and black cardstock, I die cut flowers and leaves using the Stampin' Up "Botanical Builder Framelits". I layered the flowers and foliage and then stuck into position.
I then stamped the sentiment, which was in a Stampin' Up set called "For Everything", stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne". I then die cut it into an oval shape and stuck it to the card using foam pads. Finally, I added touches of silver glitter to the flowers and to the sentiment.

great use of the die cut overlay and the die cut flowers against the beautiful backgroundReplyDelete
Thanks Meg. I was really happy with the way this one turned out. It's actually on my desk at the side of me. Sam xDelete
Gorgeous and so resourceful using the gelli print for flowers to coordinate. I think we share a Versafine Clair addiction, lol. It's great stuff!!! But I wish they would make a really rich red. xoxoxoReplyDelete
