CCM #162 - 1, 2 3

I’m hosting the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time around and I would love to see your creations following our 1, 2, 3 theme.

I want to see you use 1 Image, 2 Designer/Pattern Papers and 3 SEPERATE AND DIFFERENT embellishments

We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge, Woodware Craft Collection with a great prize of a £12 voucher to spend in your favourite Woodware stockist.

161 - 123 A

I created my card using the lovely new Polkadoodles CD rom, Lemonade Fizz. My 1 image and 2 papers both came from this cd. I created the image myself from a frame and an ‘ingredient’ found on the cd, and using my graphics program I created a drop shadow effect around the outer and inner parts of the image.

Both papers and image were printed onto Navigator 120 gsm paper, in my opinion the BEST paper for printing such things! It’s smooth and prints beautifully, plus it’s a really crisp white to start with so you get the best representation of colour that your printer can give you.

I matted the image and papers onto black cardstock. I added some glitter highlights to the flowers in the image with Glamour Dust and a quickie glue pen.

My 3 embellishments are a doily, which I tinted with two different coloured copics to tone in with some of the colours in my papers, a metallic butterfly sticker which I stuck down onto some of the spare Navigator paper and cut out, and the third embellishment is Card Candi.

I couldn’t quite get the light right on this picture, so I have used two slightly different light condition versions. The top one is closer to the correct colours, but the bottom one shows better definition.
