Snowflake

Hello,

I was supposed to post this on Friday...but forgot to publish it in all the excitement to attend a college friend's wedding...hehehe...
So here comes a delayed post...

The dare at Daring Cardmakers this week is "Decorate It!"


You could make something to decorate your home; a table decoration, a banner or some Bunting, a Christmas Cracker or similar, maybe something to hang on the tree or how about a topper to make a gift look extra special and festive.  

I made a 3-dimensional Snowflake...

Silver & White

Hello crafters,

We have a very very beautiful picture for elemental inspiration at Daring Cardmakers this week...
The silver and white look just magical together...


The elements I chose from this picture were the colours, the snowflakes and the Christmas theme

I made a card inspired by a snow globe...


It was very hard to capture the silver base in the photo... 
The base is actually a mirror like silver...it looks ethereal in real life ;)

Raspberry & Lime

Hello,

Its Daring Cardmakers challenge time!!!
The dare for this week is "Raspberry & Lime"...
You have to make a card that uses bright green and vivik pink as the main colours...

I have never liked the pink and green combination...
But thanks to this dare...my view is changed forever...
I loved the combination so so much...that I created 2 cards using the same combination and idea...

(Sadly...the card didn't photograph very well)

For the first card, the wreath was created using the tiny flower stamps from the Mudra Floral Silouette card...

For the 2nd card, I used the smallest flower from my Mandala stamp set by Peekaboo to create the wreath...

The background was created by sponging Distress Inks through a lattice stencil...
And I used 2 sentiments from a Ki by Hampton Art stamp set...
