CD Sunday Challenge - Stamping

Early Saturday evening again and time for me to enter the CD Sunday Blog Challenge. This week the DT wanted to see some stamping as well as something from a CD. It could have been a stamped image or just a sentiment. I needed to make a wedding card so chose to do a stamped image. It's a La Blanche stamp from the Love Is range. I coloured it in with Promarkers (I need to practise more as I'm not very good with them). I then cut the image out with a Nestie and mounted it on some holographic silver card that I've had in my stash for years. The strip across the middle is a Martha Stewart punch again matted onto the same holographic card. The backing paper I came across when I was making a previous card. It comes in several colours and I printed out 4 different sheets as I liked it so much. When I was ready to make this wedding card I knew the pink BP would be perfect as the bride loves pink. The cd I found it on is a Kanban one called 'The Seasons Collection' and it's in the Spring and Summer section.Finally the flowers and the pink dewdrop are from my stash. Unfortunately having almost finished making it I managed to get the paper wet and as we all know paper printed on an inkjet printer doesn't like being wet. So I had to position the image over the worst bit and the peeloffs were needed to hide 2 other small splashes. I then had to place other peeloffs around the card to balance it out.


This first picture was taken with a camera.


The second picture is a scanned image and has come out very bright! The holographic card also looks black instead of silver.

I'm really enjoying being able to do some cardmaking again. It doesn't matter that my new job only pays minimum wage - I get home so relaxed and now have the energy to do housework after work so that I can have time to myself at the weekends. Wonder what the subject of the challenge will be tomorrow over on the CD Sunday Blog!
