Stamps R Us challenge this week is ‘Encore presentations’. Wow, how easy is that: all you have to do is to re post one of your favorite cards using any stamp or digital image, tell the design team of Stamps R Us a little about the card and link it to the challenge. But remember it must be a new post, no back linking to the old post allowed.
I chose one of my cards I created last year October for an autumn themed challenge. There is quite a few reasons why I chose this card. Firstly it is a Penny Black image, my favourite stamps, and I love to work with autumn colours. For this card I mixed two Lyra-Rembrandt Aquarelle watercolours to get the terracotta colour of the garden pots. Since then I could not manage to achieve this result again. Instead of roses and vintage seam binding usually featured on my cards, I used oak autumn leaves and thin gold cord as embellishments. The original blog post and project details for this card can be read here.
I enter the card in the following challenges:
- Stamps R Us Challenge (ends 08/22) – Encore presentations
- Make It Monday Linky party #49 (ends 08/15) – Revive an old post
Thanks for stopping by today. I will be out-of-town this coming week to relax for a short while in the warmer climate of Kwazulu-Natal together with hubby and our two dogs . I will see you again on the 22nd of August in blog land. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.
