Well, I made it - in the nick of time! You know, I really commend those bloggers who blog daily like Linda, Holley and Annie who I follow - I couldn't do it as it is so time consuming.
The Daring Cardmakers are still in festive mode and would like to see winter flowers and foliage on your cards this week. After yesterday's blog post I had an idea in my head but it didn't quite turn out the way I intended it to. In other words I'm not happy but I didn't have time to do anything different!
My idea was to make a one layer card and use alternative colours on traditional flowers. I managed to succeed in that because I used pink and turquoise for the poinsettia and foliage. I used distress inks to paint the heat embossed image.
It was the background I had the issues with as it came out different to what was in my head and part of me wishes I hadn't bothered with it! Oh well, I might try again another day.
I actually used the stamp in a different way - off the page. I got the idea from Joanne who stamped a bauble in the similar way in last week's DCM challenge (thank you Joanne!). My stamp didn't cover the width of my card and looked a little odd in my opinion so I masked what I had stamped and rotated the stamp so I could add another poinsettia and a little more foliage.
So there we have it, bet the my teamies didn't have as much trouble as I did! Lots of wonderful inspiration from them can be found HERE. I do hope you'll join in with the Challenge!
Enjoy your weekend,
