It's Kirsten turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week and she has come up with the great theme of Travel/Holidays.
So the opportunity for a first inking up some of the images from Penny Black 30-023. I started by creating a background using Tim Holtz stormy sky, wild honey and Glimmer Mist iridescent gold. I stamped Pont Veccio, the famous bridge in Firenz or Florence as most know it as and the Tour Eiffel in black versafine and embossed with detail clear. I then stamped both randomly with the two TH inks.
Next I distressed the edges and embossed with detail gold and added some swirls around the edge with Hero Arts F5042 and Penny Black 3878F. I mounted the piece onto a mat edged with Martha Stewart round the page double loop, added some punched butterflies and some computer generated wording. This card is also for the following challenges:
Sweet Stamping - Punch it Out
Lots to Do - Vintage
My second card is for this weeks Polkadoodles challenge which Dee has set with the theme of Fancy/Interesting Folding. My card uses some of the images from the gorgeous new CD . This is a must have for you all and Nikky really has pulled out all the stops on this one. I love this acorn image and printed it our several times to decoupage and added leaves cut from from the same CD tied with raffia. The card was created simply on the scoreboard from a sheet of A4 cardstock and lined with a sheet of coordinating paper from the CD.
