LOTV DT Card and a few challenges



This is my card for this weeks LOTV. A great sketch and I had so much fun with this one. Looks like the rest of the DT did as well, they've made some fabby cards!

Something I have not done for a very long time is Heat Emboss. So thats what I did with the image (HH) and then coloured with Copics. I used a Chalk Ink Pad around it and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The papers are a mix of Basic Grey and the sentiment from Krafty Kimmies has been punched with my new Woodware Retro Word Punch. I used my Distress Tool around the paper and tinted the edges with a Brown Chalk Ink Pad. Added sparkly lace and flowers. The hinge down the side is Grungeboard that I have coloured with a Rangers Dabber and sprayed with Glimmer Mists and finished with a few Metal Brads. I've added quite a bit of the new Rock Candy Stickles and Glamour Dust to the flower but dont think the camera has picked this up very well. Do believe me, there is alot of shimmer on this card.


I do hope you can play along with this fab sketch. Remember you do not have to use LOTV products for the challenge.
Talking of challenges, mine fits in with a few;
Simon Says - Animal Antics
Basic Grey - Glitter and Bling
Lots to Do - Embossing

Well I've the grandparents shop to do today and what I'd like to know is how long does Tennis Elbow last? Just when I think its getting better, put a bit of weight on it and theres the pain again...... So much for wearing the sling, I'm pretty dependent on my right arm, eapecially when it comes to crafting!
Enjoy the rest of the week and just a reminder my candy closes tomorrow night. ALL WELCOME.

Claire this is utterly fantastic, had to keep looking as there is so much going on, wish I could do this....it is great. Hugs Avril

ps Tennis Elbow, has your Dr, suggested a Steroid Injection, I had this and it worked....a bit sore to get, but not as sore as the Elbow...if you know what I mean. Hugs Avril xxx
