Hello crafters! Today I am sharing a card that I am going to enter into the Seven Hills Craft Challenge. This is my first entry into any challenge so quite a milestone for me!
Here is my finished card.
I started with my texture paste background as the paste takes a little while to dry (an hour approximately). I squished my Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto my craft mat, and then spooned some texture paste onto it, adding colour until I got the shade I wanted. I then pasted the background onto the card base using my new My Favorite Things Wonky Chevron Stencil. I love it when you peel the stencil off and see the result!
Make sure you clean your stencil, applicator and craft mat quickly as the dried paste can be hard to remove (I know this as I got some on my top. And it is still there!).
Whilst the card base was drying I found a die cut dog and tennis ball from the Avery Elle Furry Friends set that I had previously coloured, saving myself oodles of time! All I needed to do was stamp up the dog bed and and colour it in. I used Derwent Coloursoft pencils for this. I really love how you can see the texture on the final images. This is particularly good for the pooch!
I found a vellum circle which I had die cut with my MFT Pierced Circles stax die, and adhered the dog bed using double sided tape. I then adhered the dog and ball using foam tape to give it a bit of dimension.
All I needed to do was stamp the greeting using Versafine Onyx Black. This works well on vellum but be careful to let it dry thoroughly as it can easily smudge. I decided at this point to die cut a few stars and colour them in just to add a final little embellishment.
The final piece of the jigsaw was to adhere the completed vellum circle onto the dried card base. Voila!
I hope you like the card, thank you for visiting.
