Red & White

Just a quick card from me this morning for the Daring Cardmakers Friday Challenge, which was a follows:


This week's and next week's dare are team dares - and we've decided to go nice and easy on you guys, as the past few dares have been pretty tricky ! This week, we decided on a colour combination for a change. We want you to design a card using only RED AND WHITE on your cards- it doesn't have to be a Valentine themed card - it can be any theme- as long as use incorporate RED and WHITE on it.


Red isn’t a colour that I use very often and having searched through my many drawers I couldn’t find one solitary sheet of red and white paper….would you believe that!
Inevitably, once again I had to fall back on my lovely Tapestry stamps to make a background paper.



The large stamped image is a watercolour effect Lilly from Penny Black, the greeting was done on my computer using the fabby Zapfino Linotype font and the gorgeous Red and White dotty ribbon is from Little Silver Hat. I don’t know if you’ve heard that they are closing…….I’m really going to miss my ribbon kit each month.
The card was finished off with my usual inking around the edges and a spot of Diamond Glaze in the petals of the flower.
