Yesterday was one of those days where I spent some time fooling around with one thing and another and not getting inspired by any of it. One of the things I did was to cut this card base with a die from Divinity Designs and then having no idea what to do with it. As well I cut another card base into a double gate fold and got stuck with that too. In the end I walked away from my craft room in disgust.
A reasonable nights sleep and a rainy morning sent me back into my craft room and here we are with a completed card and another one partially done too. I decorated the card front with some CS from a paper pad called textured card stock by Momenta. It isn’t actually textured but the patterns make it look that way. Once I had the pieces cut and adhered I took the less than perfect leftover background piece and cut some circles out of it. Did the same with some cream CS. I went over the background pieces with some gold ink and a pen around the edge so it has a bit of sparkle on both pieces. Then I stamped the focal piece with a fern leaf in different ink colours. No idea who made the leaf stamps but they are red rubber stamps and I think I got them in a sale somewhere. I used some other leaves from a StampinUp set and stamped the sentiment from that same set on the smaller circle which I heat embossed. Glued these pieces to the background circles and than added them to card. Went through my stash of bling and found the copper leaf and baubles for the bottom and an old jewelry piece I had broken up a while ago. Decided that this would work for this weeks The Card Concept challenge. To me this card seems to fit the Mixed media style best but it could also be FreeStyle collage.
