Kraft, Pale Yellow and Gold

The job hunt continues have to hope that very very soon my next job will find me. In the mean time lots and lots of craft time and a chance to find new to me Challenges.

One such is CR84FN, no not a clue what the title stands for am interested to find out though. Well this lovely friendly group have a colour challenge to use Kraft, Pale Yellow and Gold. Such a pretty gentle combination. Have just got my hands on TH Kraft Glassine papers, wonderful stuff you can do all sorts with it will probably share until you plead with me to stop LOL

For this card the Glassine paper was used with a MS punch to go down the side of the card. Crafty Individuals Poppy stamps used both the large framed version and the small poppy cut out. The words are Sheena's/ The larger poppy stamped and embossed again on the Glassine paper flower cut out. Alcohol Inks in Berry and Lettuce used to colour over the top. This paper cuts beautifully and does not seem to tear as you more it around in the scissors. It also takes the Alcohol ink without it bleeding into the paper.   The card stock is of course the pale yellow but just to be sure there are also small dots of yellow viva Gloss.

  6. This is great Zoe. And I love the pansy tag you previously made. I can't keep up with all your creations you're so crafty at the moment. One plus side to being home I guess but really hope something turns up for your soon my friend.

    The challenge name is a bit bewildering, but have just read Marie's comment......must be a Greek interpretation, darn clever those greeks.
