House of Cards October ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend has started well. It’s the first of the month and that means a new challenge at House of Cards and you can create a gate fold card or you can use these colours or both …
You can see I have used both the colours and created a gate fold card and here it is …
Isn't he a beautiful bird?!
Apologies - I could not get a decent side view of the card.
However you can see that there are several layers
Love that colour!
The RHS panel
He is a real stunner - makes my card looks awesome!
A final look
Yes I am still creating and playing with my bird stamps, love them so much, and I used a new stencil that I was able to purchase from The Craft Barn, it’s an Imagination Crafts stencil and today is its first outing. This was also my first attempt at the ombre technique and I am reasonably happy with the end result. I have learnt a little from doing it and hope to try this again. I used my Spectrum Noir AquaTints, Spectrum Noir Sparkle and two different dies. I didn’t want this card to be too sparkly because it’s going into the male birthday cards box.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
