Good morning Duckadees, me again. Blog posts from me, like waiting for a bus. . . . . you wait for ages and then two come along at once lol!
Hope you all had a splendid Easter Sunday. Cheesy Puffs (prefer them to chocolate) roast turkey dinner followed by bread and butter pudding made with hot cross buns and Sue Wilson and the Chinese GP on the box. . . . . . . .happy days!
Mr D did buy me chocolate as well but most of it was his favourites (I'm a Galaxy girl by choice) in the knowledge he will get to eat most of it.
Now, today's card is my DT one for House of Cards April Challenge. This months challenge is this sketch. . . . .
As you will notice, The Striplet has an outing again (you can't keep a good Striplet down).
The base card is A5 white card. I used my black marker pen to do my faux black layer again (times are hard!) and topped this with a slightly smaller layer of First Edition Neroli 8x8 paper. I was very lucky to be able to pick up a few Neroli pads in a sale at work for much cheapness and I love em.
I cut The Striplet out of this, slightly above centre (you have to extend the pattern) I then stuck this to the card base.
I made the frame using the different size SB Captivating Squares. The centre piece was heat embossed with Stampendous white powder and this was stuck flat to the card. The frame was foam padded to give it depth.
The paper I used is double sided so I used the reverse of the offcut to cut the smallest die of the set as an embellishment. I then made a few dots around the edge of the centre using a white gel pen and added a few of John's Chinese Pearls in the corners.
It still looked lacking so that is why I added the strip of black card across the centre of The Striplet, cut with my dear Mum's pincking shears (I can sense her finger wagging from her cloud!) and more JCP added across its middle.
I hope you like it and also that you will pop over to HOC here and see what my DT chums have come up with. Be lovely to see you join in the challenge too. Our own Jackie D got top 5 last time so even if you haven't got a blog, you can enter by email.
Will be back later in the week (doing extra hours this week to cover someone on leave) with Mr D's Easter pressie and a snap of Wendy's blog prize. . . . . Hope its stuff she will like.
Meantime, lets be careful out there.
