I have managed to make a card this afternoon for the Daring Card Makers Challenge this week which is Love and Friendship.
I started by folding a piece of white card and then cutting a mat slightly smaller than the card. I used Scattered Straw and Pine Needles Distress Inks - I love these two colours together - blending them with Cut & Dry foam. I spritzed with water to achieve a slightly distressed look and then coloured a smaller mat for the message in the same way.
I stamped the Wings with Black Versafine ink and then made a mask for them and over stamped with the Script image using Pine Needles ink. I used the Friendship sentiment, stamping with Black Versafine. The stamps I have used are from the Tim Holtz Collection by Stampers Anonymous.
I edged all the pieces with gold Krylon and then pierced a hole in the message mat, added a jump ring with the feather charm and then layered this to the main image using 3D foam.
I really enjoyed the Challenge, so thanks to the girls on the DCM team.
Thanks for looking
