Many SU Demos have been in Chilly Canberra this weekend for the annual Stampin’ Up! Convention.  Unfortunately I couldn’t make it.  A forum I am on had a non-convention goers card challenge, among many other fun challenges.  Thanks Tanya for organising this!!

This is the sketch that we had to create a card.  I like this sketch.  It is very simple.  I might be using it for some upcoming workshops! 


This is the card I created.   I was inspired by this card by Claire.  I loved how she used the Baroque Motif swirls on the background.


I have used the faux silk technique for the rose.  First I stamped the rose image from Embrace Life in stazon on white tissue paper.  Then I watercoloured the rose with the stamp pads and aquapainter.  Leave it to dry for a short time and then scrunch up the tissue into a ball.  Carefully unwrap the ball.  Adhere the tissue to white cardstock.  For the card I stamped the Baroque Motifs swirl with choc chip ink onto choc chip cardstock.  I scalloped the edge of Ruby Red card and adhered a piece of the Raspberry Tart DSP onto this before adhering both to the choc chip card.  I used mounting tape to mount the faux silk image.  The greeting is from the Level 1 hostess set, Best Yet.  I inked up the words with markers and used the Large oval and the new Wide oval punch.  I was really pleased how this turned out. There are so many other projects Tanya has set for us, but I think I will be trying these over the next couple of weeks. This week is turning out to be very busy.
