I hope you have had sunshine today :) Typically as the kids go back to school the sun makes a reappearance so I have spent the day in the garden wrestling with weeds!
Given all of my manual labour in the garden I thought that I deserved a touch of luxury....which came in the form of the current challenge over at Addicted to CAS. Here's what I came up with:
What could be more of a luxury than diamonds?! I used this fab stamp from Avery Elle and combined it with a sentiment from Hero Arts gold embossed on vellum. For added luxury I used a Memory Box stencil with gilding flakes to create the rays from my diamond. WoS on the diamond and a few sequins to finish. I like the texture that the flakes add to the card.
While I was feeling decadent I made a card for the current challenge over at Inkspirational. The inspiration photo is gorgeous:
I love peacock feathers so have gone for a very literal interpretation:
I have inked through a dreamweaver stencil, tapped some gold and teal sprays on to the card and added a gold embossed sentiment from Altenew's Label Love.
I will also make one last link up to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge for Anything Goes.
I will be back tomorrow with another card.
Thanks for stopping by!
