Crafty Ann's Challenge 9 is to..." get out of your comfort zone and celebrate your creativity by trying a technique, product, fold or design you have been shying away from or haven't done or used as often as you'd like"
This did take me out of my comfort zone because the last time I used the Celebration template was for my daughter's 40th, 2yrs ago, and also because it is for a special occasion I didn't want to mess it up. The black mirri card marks so easily.
It seems much longer than 2yrs though....so many more cards 'under the bridge' since then
This one is for the daughter of a friend. I am happy to say she was very pleased with it when I gave it to her this evening....I hope her daughter will be too.
The base card is ivory pearlescent and the bottle is mirri card.
I had forgotten what a job it is to get anything to stick to pearly card and the bottle kept popping up at the side. I managed in the end by hatch scoring to give the DST some grip.
There is a little mountain of foam pads under the main part of the bottle to give it lift graduating down to two at the neck.
The number 40 is attached to a white wire spiral and the flowers were sprayed with my new Irridescent Gold glimmer mist. I am a bit disappointed with it...I expected it to be more obvious...it is a shame that it hardly shows. At £8/bottle it will get used though. I expect it is better used on darker materials.
Lexi's Creations challenge 8 this week is 'Anything Goes' so I'd like to enter this too.
Thank you for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments I have received on recent cards.
