I’m so pleased to be able to share some exciting news with you today. I have been asked by the super talented Heather Hudson, my Gecko Galz teamie, to join her My Artistic Adventures Challenge DT. No matter where you were in the world that day you would have heard my squeals of delight. Obviously it was a no brainer and I replied “yes” as quickly as I could, just in case she had emailed me by mistake!! Not only is Heather an amazing crafter, she also produces fantastic digital collage sheets that are available via her Etsy shop. Ahead of my first “official” project tomorrow I thought it would be fun to make a little something to celebrate my news and it just so happens that Heather had the perfect collage sheet which just shows why this was meant to be!
Do you see what I mean? For my card I’ve used the gorgeous Vintage Bumble Bee Calm collage sheet which has tags, squares and words. The beauty of Heather’s sheet is that the quality remains the same no matter what size you print out at.
I printed out two of the tags in different sizes plus one of the squares. The were all mounted on to dark brown cardstock, which looks black in the picture, and outlined with a sprinkle of gold glitter. I used glue gel for the top two layers to add dimension.
I decided this project was worth sacrificing some of my favourite Stampin’ Up! lace for and used a strip along the bottom of the card and then some scraps on the beehive tag.
To embellish, I’ve used some seam binding, scraps of a thicker lace and a paper rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Not only is this card is also perfect for the current music themed challenge over at Crafty Boots (and you have a whole week left in which to play along), it will also be perfect for my friend’s wedding in December.
Thanks for buzzing by.
