Hello! How was your weekend? I hope you managed to get some crafting done? Another busy weekend here for me decorating. I am currently tiling my kitchen. It is going well. I have always done my own tiling I find the whole process really satisfying. I have a fantastic electric tile cutter which sails through the tiles. I used to use a 'stick' cutter, it had a diamond tip and you would score the tile and crack it over two match sticks. It was a nightmare as it would go something like 'cut two, break one, cut two, break one' and don't even think about cutting a piece out of the tile to go around a socket!!! Now it is a breeze with the fancy electric cutter. Enough DIY, I am beginning to sound like an advert for B&Q!!
My card today features the amazing castle stamp from the Once Upon a Time set. I have used this stamp for all types of scenes from dark to light, from realistic to fantasy. I have combined it here with the cracked glass stamp from the Time after Time set and the birds from the Free your Imagination set.
I started by stamping and heat embossing the cracked glass stamp with white embossing powder onto white card. I then coloured over this with a couple of blue tones of Gentle Blends, Denim and Teal. I then took a piece of white card, masked the edges and coloured this with the same two colours. After taking the masking tape off I stamped the castle in the corner and coloured it in with Gentle Blends in Denim using a paint brush. I stamped the Once Upon a Time words and cut them out before mounting onto the castle panel.
I did one of my bead 'things' for the side. I have a bit of an aversion to bows! I can't seem to make bows wrapped around cards work for me so I came up with this beady-string-knot thing instead.
I hope you have enjoyed this project? It was fun to make and I hope it has inspired you to have a go!
