City Crafter Challenge Blog - Guest Designer week 317



I was lucky enough to be invited to be the Guest Designer over on the City Crafter Challenge blog for this week 317 whose theme is 'White and Bright' and above is my card.  Here is the inspiration photo:




I started with a white 5 x 7 inch easel fold card as the base.

I then cut two mats through the Sizzix Bigshot, one in white card and one in a mauve on white design card using square stitched edge dies.  The white mat was to be decorated with the flower whilst the mauve mat was in line with the tea-towels in the photo.





I then stamped a flower image from a Judikins cube stamp in Versamark ink which I then heat embossed with fine white embossing powder.

I then used a waterbrush and tile to transfer and add Memento inks in Lady Bug, Lulu Lavender, Rose Bud, Lilac Posies, Grape Jelly & Sweet Plum to add the petal colour and Desert Sand and Cantaloupe for the flower centre.  These colours represent the colours of the tulips in the photo.

Both mats were edged in black Memento ink before layering and adhering to the card as shown.




The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and was stamped in more Memento black ink.  Finally 3 sequins were added as shown to complete the card.

Thanks again to the City Crafter Challenge Blog for the inspiration !
