We have a brand new challenge starting today over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog
We want to see all your cards that have a sentiment as a main focal point rather than an image although your card have an image on it.
My DT card was a sample I made a while ago for the release of the new Joanna Sheen pressed flowers stamps - this card features 2 different ivy stamps and is from the "narcissi" set. I was very lucky to be able to work with all 3 sets which are so versatile. You can check them out for yourself here. My card is a gatefold card which isn't something I do very often but I thought it would work best with the effect I was trying to go for. It looked so much better in real life as mirri card is difficult to photograph but most cards do don't they? The leaves were coloured with my promarkers and then layered up around the sentiment panel - I used a clear sakura glaze pen on the edges and veins for added effect but you can't really tell from the piccie. The sentiment is one I printed out on my computer although I can't remember the name of the font!
I had intended to make a card specially for the challenge but I haven't been feeling well after I almost passed out at work so I was sent home. I'm feeling a bit more like myself now as I felt dreadful at the time but my midwife told me to take it easy so I've not done much at all over the last week or so. I only have a few more weeks left at work which I'm pleased about and I finish about 6 weeks before I'm due on the 2nd November.
Thanks for looking!
