Welcome to this weeks new
The theme this week has been chosen by the lovely Jane and it is
Red, White and Black with texture.
This weeks sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop and the prize is a $10 voucher.
Now on to my card and in my mind red and black says oriental. So I have had to use my Japanese Tilda stamp. She has been coloured with Tria Markers and cut out using a Spellbinders die and layered onto red card.
The background paper has been made by stamping a Oriental script stamp with Versamark ink all over black card and then is has been dusted with Perfect Pearls pearlescent powders in red. I have then wrapped a white ribbon around the middle with a white bow and tassle.
Across the bottom right of the card I have put 3 carnation type flowers. These have been made using a 1.5 inch scalloped punch and cuting out 10 circles in patterned paper. Join the all together through the center with a brad. Then starting at the center each layer is gathered tightly up untill all layers are drawn up, squeeze them up well, then one by one pull them apart gently and they come out looking like a carnation. They add a lot of texture to the card.
I have just added a simple greeting to the top. Red and white card layers cut using the same die as the main image and on it is love in Oriental text. May I just add, after finding I have been chosen as a top 3 winner and being a Guest Design team member for February, how much I appreciate these awards and all the lovely comments I receive for my cards. It's good to know that peaple other than myself like what I do. But I am still see other people's work that I really strive to be as good as. :)X
