Stamptacular Challenge 16

Hi everyone! I must apologize for the lack of cards this week, we have been laying some tiles in our garden and we have been trying to get them finished before my sister arrives on Tuesday for a week. Stamptacular Challenge 16 has a theme of "Shapetacular Card" which means you need to make a card with an unusual shape eg. no square or rectangular cards. We also have Priscilla sponsoring us with a fabulous prize this week.

For my DT creation, I made an oval card, played it safe! The rest of the DT have made some outstanding cards so make sure you check them out. I used my scalloped oval and plain oval nesties for the shape and layers, and the paper is from papermania.

I used my Gorjuss Girl Sitting, coloured her with distress inks, cut her out and used foam pads to adhere her to the card. The embossing was done with my d'vine swirl folder and I finished of with three small jewels. I also made a small envelope for the card too.

Card/Paper: White and lilac card, Papermania - Amethyst Infusion
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girl Sitting
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, black soot, dusty concord
Embellishments: Jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nesties, d'vine swirl folder, water brush

Thanks for looking x
