Well, I started the New Year with a horrible cold, but am feeling much better now and I'm not going to let it get me down!
I am back today with my first DT project for the year and have thoroughly enjoyed getting inky for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz today. My teamie Aly has chose the theme
'ARTIST TRADING CARDS'
Artist Trading Cards are little miniature pieces of art that measure 2.5" x 3.5" - I decided to make a set of three (sometimes referred to as 'Triptych' - a picture on three panels).
So I cut a piece of white Neenah cardstock slightly smaller than 2.5" x 7.5" (as I wanted to mount each piece on black when I finished).
Using my blending tool I added a light covering of distress ink in Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick, then used a flower stencil and inked through using the same colours to create my background. I over-stamped using a silhouette stamp set from Sheena Douglass with a Black Memento inkpad, then cut my design into 3 equal pieces before mounting them on the black.
Why not pop over and check out some of the fabulous examples from the rest of the team.
