Hi Susan here....
Today at Sentimental Sundays our new challenge is starting and the theme is -
I love this type of challenge as most of my cards seem to be shades of one colour.
For full details of the challenge and to see what all the other design team members have done to give you some inspiration call across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog.
Now onto my card...
This can be a difficult theme to follow I know...but I chose to use shades of one colour 'Pink' with white and I like the effect. I have made the card to suit either a birthday to a loved one, or an anniversary card, as the sentiments are all about love.
The chipboard hearts in the foreground are a die from Sizzix, I have added glitter to one of them.
The definition sentiment and postage stamp are from our stash, the colour was amazing as they turned out to be the exact shade as my backing papers which were also from my stash of leftovers from 12x12 pads from HOTP Romance.
My flowers are from Hobby Craft the leaves I made from card, inks and a ball tool.
This beautiful digi image is from Wee Stamps, isn't it the most gorgeous stamp, I love it! I have used just chalks to colour this image and was really pleased with the effects, I love using chalk pencils they are so precise and the colours just blend so well together.
I have added gems to the image for a little bit of sparkle. I gently chalked the background in a pale pink, although its not very evident in the photo, and then mat and layered it onto a piece of my background paper.
This is to show the inside of my card....still keeping to the monochromatic and my love theme.
This beautiful sentiment was made special for me by Ann Vento, and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs. I absolutely love this sentiment from John Lennon, it's one of my favourites.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
