Our Creative Corner - Triple Play


Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend. A card today for Our Creative Corner where the challenge this week is 'Triple Play'. There's a list of embellishments and you have to pick three from the list to use on your card. I've used bling, ribbon and lacquer (glossy crackle accents in this case on the big flower. Just about everything on this card came from my lovely blog buddy Tara in a gorgeous RAK she sent me, thank you Tara, it's all beautiful! I coloured this little Ketto image with markers, cut out with square nesties and mounted on pink core'dinations scalloped nestie cut out and I've added a little half pearl to the flower centre and Papermania sentiment. The card blank is cut from aqua bazzil layered with more pink card and then the very pretty paper from Tara (don't know the brand but it's really gorgeous) I added a big bow and ribbon band across the centre which is very sheer and wide and it's dotted with little sparkly gems. The die cut flower at the bottom was also from Tara :) and was white so that I could colour it which is great. I coloured with markers then added the crackle accents, a punched stamen and pearl. Everything is mounted with 1mm and 2mm dimension tape. TFL. Chris x

Popped back for another browsey around your lovely stuff. I wanted to click on your follow button, but it's gone walkabout just like mine (I had a look on blogger and they are trying to fix it) Maybe my followers and yours have got together for the weekend, having a party somewhere without telling us..... Your work is beautiful
