DCM’s Little Extra

The Daring Cardmakers team are getting us to ‘Look Back a Little’ this week.
We want you choose a card from one of the design team’s cards submitted for the 'Foiled' dare and come up with a card using one or two of the same elements. tricky... !

I’ve chosen to use the same Tilda image and a Silver Star, as Lythan used on her foiled card last Friday. It would seem that I’ve also used the same colours as she did too but that was completely unintentional. The colour scheme came about because I wanted to use my Tres Jolie papers from My Mind’s Eye. They are close to being one of my favorites to use because I just love the quality and muted, subtle colours…..they’re so scrummy!

Roberta Robo was pressed into action for this card, as was my large Daisy punch and my water colour pencils.

Plain Card – Aqua Bazzill
Patterned Papers - Tres Jolie - My Mind’s Eye
Tilda Image – courtesy of Lythan (thanks hun)
Blooms – Prima & Sarah’s Cards
Ribbon and Star brad – my stash
Stickles Glitter Glue – Lime Green
Distress Ink – Broken China

I also thought I would have a go with a set of Tanda rubber stamps that I brought a little while back but haven’t used yet. They are the Native American Indian - Set 1 and I was really impressed with the quality of the images.

Here’s one of the cards I made

I coloured the card with distress inks before stamping the image with Black Staz-On.

It was quite a simple card but you should have seen the state of my hands when I’d finished. Lol!

I like the way Tilda sits on the fence! The Indian is a super stamp. Looks good.

The Tilda card looks so cosy - the choice of papers and the design of the card are great.
