Thursday Bee Crafty DT post - Dare to Dream

Hi everyone, for this weeks Bee Crafty DT project I decided to make the card below.  Now this card is a first for me as I used texture paste, and I've got to say I really enjoyed playing with this and think it may be a regular feature on my cards.

To make this card you will need -
  • 6" x 6" white card blank
  • White and black cardstock
  • WORDage - Dare To Dream
  • Inkables template - Oval Lattice
  • Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry & Wilted Violet)
  • Onyx Black Versafine Ink
  • Texture Paste
  • White paper flowers (From my crafty stash)
  • Black gems (From my crafty stash)
  • Glue
  • Foam pads
  • Water brush
How to make -

  • Cut a piece of black cardstock slightly smaller than the card blank, and a piece of white card slightly smaller than this.
  • Take the cut piece of white card and apply some texture paste randomly through sections of the oval lace template.  Leave this to dry.
  • Once dry, blend some Picked Raspberry around the outer 4 corners and then Wilted Violet across the remaining white areas.
  • Cut another smaller square of white card, and blend Wilted Violet over the entire piece, then using Versafine ink stamp the sentiment.  Leave it to dry for a few minutes, then using a water brush add some Picked Raspberry to the letters.  Mat this onto a slightly larger piece of black card.
  • Colour the white flowers using the Distress Inks.
  • Add the sentiment to the card using foam pads, and arrange the flowers around this, also using foam pads to adhere them.
  • Finish off by gluing some black gems to the centre of the flowers.
That's this weeks project finished...hope you liked it?  I'll be back next Thursday with a new DT project for you.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x
