Hi all I have some wonderful news to share with you and that is I won card of the week at Karens Doodles and was chosen in the top 3 at both 2 Sisters Challenge and Tuesday Throwdown, wow, I am on top of the world, thank you ladies for these wins.
I have made something a little different today, I think my creative juices are starting to flow, lol, I have made a Shadow Box card. It folds to an A5 size so is quite large after using mainly 6x6 card stock.
I found some beautiful pink card-stock in my stash, at first I thought it was pearlescent but it is quite rough to the touch so not sure what it's called. I used one of my Grande Nestie Dies to cut the centre aperture, I found some gorgeous pink paper that I got from Elusive Images, while I was a member, and used this on the inside.
I have used two of my new rubber stamps called Dolly Pip and Cherry Pip both from Funky Kits. I stamped them with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with Copics then cut them out. Dolly Pip I cut out twice and 3d'd her in the centre, Cherry Pip I stamped once then cut her out and adhered her to the front by way of silicone glue. I found my pink daisy lace which I fixed around the centre aperture, I punched out 2 butterflies, then added liquid pearls for their centre stem, I used my die cut for the white pearlescent leaves and added lots of flowers, my final touch was to add a lace bow in the centre just above Dolly Pip.
I would like to thank Nic aka Coops for so much inspiration, I first saw these little cuties on her blog and fell in love with them. I want to thank you all though as you all inspire me so much, I would not be able to do this if it wasn't for my wonderful blogging pals.
I have taken two photos so you can catch a glimpse of the gorgeous paper in the centre.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
I want to thank you for visiting and I hope that you like my Shadow Box, your comments are truly wonderful, thank you. I will be visiting soon but for now hugs to all.
Ps, I am now using my blog name coldwaters2 to enter challenges as there are quite a few lovely Lorraine's about so I thought it would reduce any confusion.
