Tonight I am sharing the card that I have made using the sketch over at the Woodware challenge.
It has actually been made for my good friend Anna who lost her Mum just after Christmas.
The black and white panel has been stamped and embossed using the large flower head from the Stampendous clear set SSC1111 Agapanthus Thank You, black versafine ink and clear embossing powder.
I distressed the edges using weathered wood distress ink and some Metallic rub-ons from Kit no 3.
The central black panel has been stamped and embossed using the fine line flower head and then the images have been painted using thin bleach.
I also added a greeting to both panels from Woodware clear set JGCL508 Jane's Script.
The card candy has been punched from some of the left over pieces and attached using silicon.
The main image has been created using another Stampendous stamp Agapanthus Cluster and decorators chalks. It was cut out using a nestie and layered over more of the purple card stock.
Why not have a go at making a card following this sketch. You have the entire month of January to come up with something, and you never know you might win a prize.
Add your creation using the link at the bottom of the Mondays Post, and don't forget you can still enter even if you don't have a blog, by e-mailing a picture of your card to Dorothy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good Luck, and most of all have fun.
