As I said I would, I re-did the last Telford make-n-take I shared with you yesterday.
I was quite disappointed that changing the bottom layer of the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) didn’t make much difference to the card.
I made a second one but starting with a base of Whisper White thinking that maybe, the design wasn’t being helped by the fact there was no other white to tie the embossed piece to but still no improvement.
I went on to make another card using some of the new products.
I wanted to use a piece of one of the specialty sheets in the NEW Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP. It’s a Crumb Cake background with a gold pattern of leaves and flowers – it’s really gorgeous!
Unfortunately, when I collected all the pieces together, the gold foil and the gold pattern on the DSP were so different, they just didn’t look good together! In fact, the Gold Foil made the gold on the specialty DSP look more like copper.
I decided to keep to my design plan and just change the DSP. The design I chose is on the reverse side of the DSP I chose for the Telford make-n-take.
To make my card I started with a card base of Crumb Cake with a layer of Whisper White and a top layer of Crumb Cake. I used the NEW Layering Squares Framelits Dies to die cut the photograph frame.
Using the Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush Marker Pens, I coloured the long flowery stamp from the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set. I
huffed on it before stamping but I didn’t get a particularly good image, so I finished colouring them in-situ. Fortunately, it turned out well!
The final stamp was to use my white gel pen to draw three small shadow lines on the balloons.
Just a quick note about this last photograph……………….
I keep looking at them trying to decide which one I like best and I’m coming out in favour of the Telford card, but I’m still not happy that the bottom layer of DSP isn’t more visible. Back to the drawing board with this one, I think! Any suggestions??
That’s about it today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
