Another wet afternoon spent in the studio - only one card completed, but some others enroute - this one is for a challenge over on Stamping Sisters In Christ Challenge #8 for a baby card... it has rather unconventional colours, but then it makes it appropriate for anyone.
The main image was part of a RAK from my dear friend Linda in Australia (Lovely Linda on SCS). I chalked this image, which was a challenge as the brown chalks I had were not the shades that I wanted, so I had to mix and match and re-colour several times.
I then found that I could just cut it out with my largest Nestabilites rectangle, so promptly did so, then mounted it on a scalloped rectangle cut with another nestie. The brown was a scrap that I had on hand, then the next green strip was put through a swiss dots cuttlebug folder. The yellow was a part of a card that was killed as it went wrong - nothing is ever wasted - then mounted on a very dark brown.
The word congratulations was embossed with gold to give some emphasis.
I am quite pleased with this card - the afternoon was actually quite productive and the next few days should show this.
Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment - they are all appreciated.
