Well, mum and I have been VERY busy today, lol.
I was showing her the challenge over at Technique Tuesday which is to create something using Faux Tiles. Next thing I know, mum is over at the craft desk already starting her card!!!
Mum was very creative with this challenge. She started by embossing a piece of cardstock with the Elegant Lines folder and then using sponge daubers to ink up the pattern. She then cut everything out in odd shapes and stuck it all back together. A few little butterflies from the Beautiful Wings set and she was finished! I love the colours that she used and the end result is just gorgeous.
Here is her card -
Now, my card is something really different for me and I loved creating it for this challenge. I seem to stick to CAS cards these days but this card really needed to have all the extras that I could bring myself to put on it!
Here is my card -
I started making my faux tiles with First Edition DSP. I have used my Spellbinder circle dies for the sponged cardstock and DP. The lace is from Inspired by Stamping. I have also used butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits. I have added pearls to the large butterfly and around the spare corners of the card. The only stamp I have used for this card is the sentiment which has been die cut with my Framelit labels set and popped up under the lace. Very lah, di, dah for me but I must admit that I really like it!!
Head on over to Technique Tuesday to see the amazing DT creations. They are very, very inspiring!!
I would also like to enter my card into the awesome challenge over at Flutter by Wednesdays - anything goes!!
Thanks for looking xx
