There’s another great dare over at the Daring Cardmakers blog and it’s the lovely Lythan’s turn to challenge us this week.
As its coming up to Mothers day in the UK here’s a chance to make a card that celebrates women and girls. So I’d like to see a card with at least one feminine image on it. And that's it for rules really.
Apart from this one.
And it is sneaky.
No Tildas, Sugar Nellies or Bellas please. I love them all. But there are loads of great challenges out there using them so for this challenge you can give them a well earned rest!
The No Tilda’s rule wasn’t such a problem for me because apart from the few images that I stamped when Lythan came over to play a few weeks ago, I don’t have any. What I did have though is a lovely set of clear stamps that I brought at Ally Pally last year. Unfortunately I’ve lost the packaging and now have no idea who they are made by but the set consisted of a ladies head and shoulders, a bag, a shoe, some scroll things and a couple of greetings.
My card was inspired by a project in this months Craft Stamper magazine where they used Alcohol Inks to make a background on glossy card and then stamp the image onto it and cut parts of it out and stick them over the top of another image.
The components used were:-
Cream Card Blank – Craft Creations
Patterned Papers – Sarabook’s Emerald Pad – Hot Off The Press
Green Textured Card – DCWV Neutrals
Letter Background Rubber Stamp – Penny Black
Lady Rubber Stamp and Greeting - Unknown
