Good afternoon!! Hope you are well!! I have been getting back into the swing of things after my holiday - unfortunately my sore neck has returned with a vengeance. So I've been and bought a new Memory Foam pillow this morning - hope it will be the solution!!
You may (or may not) have noticed the title of today's blog post - 'I can colour in!' Yes - I hear you say - you should have been able to do that since you were a toddler!! And you're right of course. But this is not just any colouring in - this is Spectrum Noir colouring in!! I submitted all my stuff to become an accredited Spectrum Noir Colourist before I went on holiday - and I've had the email to say I have passed!! So I now have a new badge over there on the right hand side!!!
So - today's card has no colouring in!! Ah well - never mind!! This was for my step-daughter for her 21st! My OH was really helpful in deciding what kind of theme - "Just put a big 21 on it!" - as I said - really helpful. But, I took him at his word and came up with this!!I started with paper from Craftwork Cards Cottage Garden Pad, and distressed the edges with a pair of scissors. I then sprinkled some Stampendous Shabby Pink Frantage on the top and heated from below. This was then machine sewn to a piece of pink Bazzill cardstock. I used a large template for the 21, cut the numbers out and repeated the process.
The swirls were cut with Spellbinders Floral Flourish dies, and I added more Frantage to some paper flowers. I used some white lace that I bought LAST summer, and has been sitting in the jar for so long because I've never really had the right project for it. I wrapped this and some pink ribbon across the card, then threaded more - with some taupe thrown in too - through the key (Creative Expressions) and attached to the card.
And there you have it!! I would like to enter this into:
