So, this is my first challenge entry and it is for the Craftwork Cards blog- Craftwork Cards 'Let it Snow' challenge. The rules are that you have to stick to the theme and use mostly craftwork cards products- not too tricky for my first go I thought.
So here's my first entry-
I started by choosing which Card Candi I wanted to use as I knew this would affect the colour scheme that I was working with. I wanted to go for something a bit unusual so chose a chevron stripe card candi in pink, green & blue. I matched these card candi colours to my distress inks, choosing 'Stormy Sky', 'Shabby Shutters' & 'Spun Sugar'.
I used the 3 distress ink colours with some small snowflake craftwork cards stamps (designed to fit the top of plain card candi) to stamp the background of a 6x6 scalloped card blank. I had used my old 'Stormy Sky' inkpad to create a faded look. I then used my new 'Stormy Sky' inkpad to stamp the 2 large snowflake images both laying slightly off the edge of the card.
I finished the card off with the 'Let It Snow' message that is another Craftwork Cards stamp that I again inked with the 'Stormy Sky' distress ink. Being a Craftwork Cards stamp, it again had a perfect space for me to add another card candi as the o of snow.
It's a very simple card and is exactly my style- a good starter for my first challenge I think.
