Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 3 - Pink and Green


Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good week, I can't believe it's Friday already, it's flown by. Time for another Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge and this week we have a colour combination for you of pink and green. Hope you can join us, we had a great response last week and this week there's a prize of a couple of digi-stamps on offer. Pop over to the blog for some great inspiration from my lovely DT friends and more details.

I used my open rose digi image for my card which I enlarged and printed, then water coloured with distress inks. I've cut the rose out and attached it with gel glue to a layer of BG Two Scoops paper (thank you San, I love this paper!) which is punched with the MS doily lace punch. The next layer is Core-dinations card which I've embossed with a CB script folder and then sanded and there's a layer of pale green bazzil card under that. All the edges have been distressed with an edge distresser and the BasicGrey paper layer is mounted on dimension tape. I added half pearls around the scallops of the card blank and some stickles to the rose to finish. TFL. See you tomorrow with my BasicGrey card. Chris x

Gorgeous card Chris. Love the distressing and the detailing with glitter and pearls - it must have taken you ages to position them so perfectly, mine would have been all over the place, LOL! Nicki, xx.
