Flowers for Audrey

I was asked to make a personalised birthday card 'something with flowers' would do!! I hope they think this is suitable. Embossed frame from Craftwork Cards has been accented with fluid chalk ink, flower stamps are by Tanda and have been coloured using Twinkling H2Os. The greeting (produced on the computer) has been added to some Cuttlebug die cuts.

Dance the Night Away

The Tanda Teaser challenge theme this week was Dance the Night Away and this card has only just been made in time! Image and background papers from Joanna Sheen Dancing With Shadows CD - image printed onto canvas texture paper. Flower embellishments from papermania and greeting has been added to scalloped circles cut with Cuttlebug dies.

Acetate Trees

I thought I would try to make a card with a curved acetate panel using one of the Elusive Images tall trees stamps. I've not seen any tutorials so just did what I thought.

The panel doesn't show up too well on the scan and I found it difficult to photograph - also on the close up I see the static in the acetate has picked up specks of dust so all in all not a total success. Background is glossy card coloured with alcohol inks, the tree on acetate was stamped with Stazon and the others with Versafine. There is a 'spring' in the acetate which has a tendency to pull the panel away from the DST holding it to the background and of course a box would be needed to put this card in the post .

I do like to try lots of ideas and techniques but maybe I will give this one a miss in future unless I can perfect the technique.
