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.
