Two challenges, two cards!!
After struggling to find the twine I wanted in the UK, I eventually found The Ribbon Reel site which is fantastic, it has a huge array of ribbons and twine plus other craft products. I ordered my twine plus a few other bits that just fell into my basket when I wasn't looking ( LOL!!) and I was thrilled with the excellent service. After looking round the site I noticed they had a blog and a fortnightly challenge, so I just had to try my luck and have a go. The inspirational photograph is below and I love the pretty colours, the other requisites were to use, ribbon, lace, stitching and roses, I had fun with this one as I love a bit of shabby chic!!
Supplies:- Hero Arts stamps Classic Fabric Background, Happy Definition, Antique Engravings, The Crafts Meow Label Stamps . Patterned Paper. Prima Crafts
My second card is is for the current Hero Arts challenge to use Die Cuts, as you can see the background is made using the same technique as my first card. I used some Serenade Chalk inks to stamp the Classic Fabric background and then over stamped it with the Happy Definition stamp. The Greeting stamp has been inked and embossed with Moss powder and then I over stamped the Newspaper background stamp before die cutting and then distressing. The second butterfly has been stamped onto some patterned vellum and embossed with clear powder.
