Hi all. I wanted to make a birthday card using the lovely Papermania black and white papers which I was lucky enough to win about three weeks' ago over at Pixie's Playground. I decided to use a set of stamps from Chocolate Baroque called Poppy Meadow, and also the current sketch over at Mojo Monday.
I changed the shape to a square card as that is my shape of choice as you will probably have guessed, and I found two of the Papermania papers which I thought would work together and backed with snippets of black card, on one of which I used a Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Borders - Three die down the side. I stamped the poppy on to a snippet of white card using Archival Black ink, and coloured using the new Spectrum Noir Polychromos Pencils. In fact this is the first time I have used them, but have to say I really like them. They are are quite soft and waxy and impart a lovely sheen on to the image, and blend together extremely well. I then die cut the shape using Spellbinders Nestibilities - Rounded Squares using the second largest die.
I finished the card by adding a Papermania sentiment, a packet of which was also part of the candy. The only part of the sketch I omitted was the flower embellishment, but then I used the sentiment albeit in a slightly different place, so hope this is ok for the challenge.
Thank you for taking a look today, and see you again soon.
I am entering the following challenges:
Mojo Monday - 353 - Contest
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - using snippets/scraps of card or paper, and I have used some snippets of black and white card.
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Start from Scratch. My flower topper was plain white card stamped and then coloured and die cut.
