Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". We’re a group of online crafty blog friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.
This card was a real labour of love. I cased it from Kristina Werner's gorgeous card and made it while on our trip to the Lake House.
I made 24 of these and it was a great lesson in sponging. Normally I wouldn't do such labour-intensive cards as mass-production, but the week away seemed like the perfect time to invest the time to get better at this skill. The ladies will definitely recall that after I completed each one, I would call out "this is the best one yet!". It seriously takes practice to get the blending and placement of the colours correct, and I even went back and 'fixed' a few of my early ones later in the process.
I used Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Cracked Sapphire and Black. I used a Taylored Expressions die and sentiment. I also used (for the first time ever) a shimmer spray that I bought on our trip, in Biscotti. The whole sky shimmers!
Don't forget to visit all the crafty ladies participating in this event for lots of fun Holiday craft ideas.
