Frilly Fuschias

Good  Morning Fellow Bloggers, Friends and Visitors,

Hope you've had a good start to the week.   I had a good day yesterday, went out  food shopping and managed to find time to pop into a craft shop, my favourite type of shop lol!!   I bought a few crafty bits and bobs, so hopefully will have some time today to play with them.   The card I would like to share with you today was made for Sue and Harvey of www.imaginationcrafts.co.uk  in May 2012 and uses one of the decoupage stamp  sets, fuschia, some  sparkle medium and their nature mica powder set, which has some really pretty colours  in it..   This is quite a quick card to make, so let's get started.

Make a base card from white card stock,  onto this matt a piece of maroon coloured card slightly smaller than the white,  leaving a small border of the white showing.   Take a piece of white card and the Spellbinders butterfly circle die and cut out and emboss.  Put the circle aside for a future project and use the butterfly waste.   Glue four of the larger butterflies, one in each corner using Magi-Bond Glue.


Next cut out and emboss the Mariane Die from white card and fix to the centre of the maroon card in a diamond fashion.    Take a piece of white card and using a Versmark pad,  stamp the fuschia onto it and heat emboss with the claret embossing powder.  Colour the leaves with the mica powders,  a paintbrush and a little water.   Colour around the edges of the design with dusty concord and milled lavender distress inks using a blending tool.   Trim around the image and matt this onto a piece  of maroon card,  leaving a border showing.

   
Matt this onto a piece of white card and leave a tiny border  of white showing.   Fix this on top of the Marianne Die-cut using sticky foam pads.   Add a small amount of the sparkle medium to the calyx of the sepals (top of the fuschia).   Add three pearls to the top right and bottom left of the card.   Well there we have it, another finished card and I think you'll agree it was a fairly quick card to make.

Enjoy the rest of your week my friends and I'll be back in a few  days  with my very first inspiration card for  the  Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog which is due to be posted at 8am on the 1st. February 2012.   Very exciting for me.   Take good care of yourselves until then.

                                                                Love and rainbows,

                                                              Crafty Hugs   Jennifer xx .

  1. Beautiful card Jennifer, I love all the detail here, I so want to go and play today, but not to be, it is fabulous when we get new crafting goodies, is it not.

    Can I say, my youngest daughter is called Jennifer...when my Dad (a painter and decorator) died nearly 9 years ago, the day of his funeral there was a beautiful Rainbow in the sky, Jenny was just 12 at the time, said "that is granddad, painting the sky"...just thought I would share, in view of the name of your blog, xxxx
