Okay, I'm starting to panic...it's already December and I haven't bought a single Christmas present yet. Why is it that I seem to get more disorganised every year? Mind you, the turkey is already on order, so we won't go hungry.
Today, I'm giving Christmas a miss - well, as far as the card making goes. For my Colour Create DT card this week I've made another 'Thank You' card for those wonderful nurses.
Our fabulous Deanne picked the colours of Lilac or Purple with Aqua, Black and White for the challenge (oooh! I love lilac and aqua together) and she gave us this picture for inspiration.
There's no optional extra this week so everyone is free to do what they want to and use anything they like. We have a couple of lovely stamps as the prize for this challenge that have been donated by:
I wanted to use something unique on my card again - so, you guessed it - I made a masterboard and used it as the background.
First I stamped the Hampton Art Love Fluff Large heart stamp in clear ink onto white card and heat embossed it with Stampendous Stamp'n Stuff Kaleidoscope embossing powder (it really twinkles). Then I smudged Adirondack Lights ink in Aqua and Ink It Up! Lavender ink all over the card and sprayed with a water mister. Once dry, I stamped the Debbi Moore Heart Swirl stamp in the Aqua and Lavender ink and finally stamped a few tiny hearts from the Basic Grey Love Swirl in black Stayzon.
The other stamps used are Penny Black Kindness sentiment, Woodware 'Must Have' Retro Words and the large central heart is an Anita's one.
You should see the amazing creations made by the rest of the DT - I love the way we all use slightly different shades and styles and we have everything from bold and bright to soft and subtle.
I hope you'll find time to join in again this week - and thanks to everyone for joining in the last challenge too.
Thanks for looking,
