Good Friday Cardmarking!

Happy Good Friday to All

Well I was lucky today my parents have taken Miss 3 for the night and Mr 1 decided to go down early for his afternoon sleep and a long one at that, so this gave me the opportunity to put on some great music and make a card, not an Easter card but a card for the Just Add Ink Challenge and for this week and they have a very special one, it is to celebrate ANZAC day.  JAI 65: JUST ADD MATESHIP/FRIENDSHIP.

JAI 63 - Inspriation Challenge

Oooh I loved this Just Add Ink 63-  Inspiration Challenge I have never tryed an Inspiration challenge before and as soon as I had seen  this one I knew straight away what I was going to do.

So here is the inspriation,

Here is my design.
Stamps: Every Moment
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Real Read
Accessories: Scallop Circle Die, Modern Label Extra large punch, Jewel rhinstone, Brights Dsp Pack, Circle Cutter, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Blender Pens

I have to admit I aint a great at colouring in, my daughter seems to stay in the lines better then I do and she is only 3. This is a basic card and could be used for many different occiasions not really sure what one I will use it for yet but I am sure it wont be long before I use it.

The big scalloped real red circle, daffodil delight circle and the whisper white circle which I have stamped the daisies and masked them to give it a bit of depth, all have been embossed together. I have then layered the colour butterflies on top and put a jewel on one daisy to make it stand out. I have used the Brights DSP (Daffodil Delight) as part of the background also stamped the butterfly in wild wasabi on the card.

I hope you like my card as much as I do and my daughter, if you would like to know any techinque that I have used on this card please dont hestitate to contact me.
