Hello fellow bloggers. Firstly thank you to all those who entered our last challenge of 'Lots of Folds' there were some gorgeous projects and some really interesting folds submitted. To see if you have made the top three please check out the Ooh La La Creations Challenge blog.
The challenge for the next two weeks is....
'She's in Fashion'
I used an image and papers from the 'Femme Fatale' CD
The background paper was made by taking a sample from one of the papers in the ATC section of the CD and then using the tile command on My Craft Studio to expand it to a full 8x8 paper. I matted this onto black card stock before attaching it to my base card. I then added a panel from the bonus papers lace folder, which had also been mounted on black card stock.
I printed two copies of the topper and matted one on black card stock, and just cut the hat from the other which I then layered onto the original image to add depth.
The black flowers were fussy cut from another of the lace paper designs and I added sparkly centres. Two die cut feathers cut from black gloss card stock and two stick pins I made from recycled charity shop jewellery finds and a small piece of net (from a net bag that contained the chestnuts we used at Christmas) complete the embellishments.
The sentiment was printed onto a background that I had sampled from the sleeve of the dress on the main image.
Inside the card I added two panels of lace paper from the bonus paper CD and a scalloped circle die cut bearing the happy birthday greeting.
I look forward to seeing all the entries for this challenge so have fun and don't forget to link your entry back to http://ooh-la-la-creationschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/
