Stampin' Chic Limited Supplies Challenge

Good evening everyone!!

Well, I finally got my Mother's Day parcels in the post (I've some projects to put on here after Sunday!!). So now I've done a card for the Stampin' Chic challenge. This week the challenge was limited supplies - specifically to only use one piece of patterened paper!

I couldn't decide on which paper to use - so went for patterned acetate instead! I've been meaning to try a card like this for ages.



The main embellishment is made from flowers stamped from the CCSR doodle stamps. I've used turquoise and lime green ink (Ink It Up mini pad collection), clear embossed and cut them out. I then coloured them in (in hindsight I should have done this before I cut them out!!!) with a waterbrush and Dovecraft shimmer chalks.

I have added another flower inside to carry on the theme.

The sentiment is also one of the CCSR stamps.

Other supplies used:

Brads - Papermania
Lime card - Core-dinations
Handmade paper & ribbon from stash

I've put matching panels on the back and front to hide all the dst and brads.




Thanks for looking. I hope you like my card!!

I love this card, very striking. I haven't been brave enough to try making a card with the acetate, but I might try it now.
