Happy Sunday everyone!
It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight’s theme is ‘perfect day’ and our sponsor is Precious Remembrance Shop. They’ve got a cool range of stamps and also some planner/scrapbooking goodies that would be perfect for Project Life.
Now I must confess that I found this challenge theme incredibly difficult! I tend to think in terms of perfect moments rather than days – catching up with family and friends, seeing a new part of the world, crafting, finding a bargain, even simply my evening commuter train just running on time (yes, rare and even then rarely perfect!).
In the end I decided to go with a wedding card, after all, we all want the bride and groom to have their perfect wedding day don’t we?
I stamped/embossed an older Magenta stamp that I’ve had for maybe a decade. Do you think I used gold embossing powder? Well, actually I didn’t – I used Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink and clear embossing powder! I was pleasantly surprised to see that it looked quite golden! After colouring the image with my Twinkling H2Os, I masked it off and added some regular distress ink to ground the image.
To add a bit of interest to the background, I cut a white card panel with an Avery Elle die and then inlaid some white glitter card before adhering the image panel.
My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Dyane from Precious Remembrance Shop and Sharon from From My Craft Desk. She has some fabulous creations on her blog – I love her style so much – you must check out her site if you haven’t already done so!
Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!
