It is a very rainy & very wet day here today. My thoughts are with friends & family up north in the brunt of “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” as she bears down on the coast as well as friends in Darwin who are dealing with “Lam”. Stay safe everyone!
I don’t usually craft on rainy days, but saw the great challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches & thought I would give it a go. Not knowing where I was going with this, I decided on the colours that I wanted to use & then just sort of went along with the flow. I’m really happy with the final result, although not sure about the small section of the Sahara Sand Starburst showing at the bottom of the circle, but no doubt it will grow on me.
For the inside of my card, I decided to use a small piece of the DSP – Best Year Ever, again add a small strip of Calypso Coral Card to one side & adhere it to a piece of Whisper White Card at a slight angle.
I played around bit with the card front, heat embossing direct onto the DSP with Versamark & Sahara Sand Inks prior to adhering to the Card Front plus layering a small piece of the gorgeous Lace Trim. I wanted the embossing to be very subtle & not take away from the focal point of the card. I also played around with stamping under & on the circle which gives it a little bit of a different look. I finished it off with scattered Rhinestones.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
