Its Tuesday which means its Totally Ladybug Tuesday and another LCI challenge. This week the challenge is from Caz and its the colour wheel! The challenge is to use the colour which is opposite your favourite on the colour wheel. So for me, my favourite colour is purple, so I had to use yellow. Make sense?! Go and take a look at the fabulous creations on the LCI challenge blog. The DT are all so talented!
This is my last card as Guest DT at the Lovely Ladybugs and its been a blast ladies!! They are a great bunch of talented ladies (if not sometimes slightly mad!) I would therefore like to dedicate this "thank you" card to all of them. Thank you for having me ladies!!
Here is my card.
I wasn't looking forward to using yellow, not a favourite colour of mine! But I'm quite pleased with the way it has turned out! I tried a new technique which I saw a little while ago on the Kaisercraft Blog and have been waiting to try it out. Its false paper pleating. I think it looks ok, don't you think? Do they look like pleats?!
Bascially I cut the paper into strips. I then cut this into bits and inked up the edges and distressed them. Then I stuck the first layer down leaving a gap in between each and then stuck on the second layer filling the gaps of the first layer. Then curled the ends up a bit. I stuck a piece of cream paper across the middle to hide all the joins and popped on this fab ribbon. (The inspiration for the ribbon came from Mary J who has been using some fabulous ribbons on her cards!)
I used the fabulous Flower for You Nikki which you can get here. I glittered her up as usual. I found some lovely paper from My Minds Eye Quite Contrary range and I combined that with some Bazzil Bling.
Its the last day today to get 15% off all stamps so once you've looked at all the DT cards go and get your stamps!! If you do miss that Kerry has a special offer all through December where if you buy one stamp you get the second for half price. What are you waiting for!! I promise you won't be disappointed.
