A card and some news!

Evening- sorry for the late post but we've been out and about today enjoying the last few days of the hols.

Before I get on to my card I just thought you'd like to know that there are some tremendous bargains to be had over at crafty ribbons- there are £5 ribbon bags which are reduced to only £1! Ali says they are selling fast so if you want some great value ribbon you'd better getter there fast!!! 

Today I have a card directly inspired by my Insider online card class and a card created by Kristina Werner.

I used a Warren stamp from Craftwork Cards which I stamped into two parts; Warren at the bottom right of a 12"x4" tri-fold card and the kite at the stop left. Next I coloured all the images with Promarkers and then masked them. I also created some cloud-shaped masks by die-cutting some thin paper using some Clearly Besotted dies. 



Then I used my blending tool to cover the card in blue ink to create my sky. Finally, after all the masks were removed I added the extended kite string to tie the two parts of the image together. I also added the sentiment from a Hero Arts set.



I'm really pleased with the way they card turned out but it was terrible to photograph! I hope you get the idea of how this little card works!

Oh, and my exciting news- I received an email this morning from Simply Cards and Papercraft telling me that I was a runner up in their card maker of the year competition 2013- I'm absolutely thrilled and shrieked when I read it. I tried to get a copy of the magazine today so I could see my work in print but my local WHSmith only had the previous issue. However, I'll try again on the weekend and hopefully get a copy of issue 119 then and I'll be able to share more details with you too.



Hopefully I'll see you tomorrow.
