First off, thank you to those who have donated to my Duke of Edinburgh Diamond Challenge fund! It means a lot that you helped me to reach my goal. Also, if you haven't donated yet, there's still time - even just a donation of £1 will mean a lot! So also thank you to those who are about to donate. All the money goes to helping disadvantaged young people to give them new opportunities. In fact, here's the link to donate...
For this card, as it's my last of this Diamond Challenge, I wanted to use a variety of techniques. Firstly I stamped the roses and leaves using the Altenew stamp set. I then die cut them out.
Next, using stencil card, I brayered Paperartsy chalk paint in the background, using a Claritystamp stencil to mask the centre circle. I then stamped some background images using a variety of Oak House Studio stamps.
Then, using a make-up brush I sponged some Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the circle, to make it pop (I used salty ocean).
I then removed the circle and stamped the Claritystamp thank you stamp and coloured with blue pens. I used a microm pen to create the border around the circle.
Finally, I glued the roses on and some ribbon and then mounted the card.
I hope you like my last project of my Diamond Challenge!
P.S. PLEASE donate, even £1 will do!
