Mackintosh Style - Peace


This card is to go into three challenges today. (I hope)

First up is the sketch at Midnight Madness, my card went a bit wrong in the middle, but you'd hardly notice!!

Next I am hoping this will fit in at La-La-Land, where the theme is 'Paper-piecing'. Not entirely sure what that is . . . but if it means cutting and layering like decoupage, then it'll be OK.

Last up is C.R.A.F.T. where the challenge is to NOT use any backing papers. None here! Just strips of coloured card, and a base colour of a very pale yellow - done on the computer and printed out - no papers at all!!

The Candle image I had as a stamp for ages, but what I did was scan a print in, and then coloured it and tweeked it to make a coloured image that I can print out again and again - handy for Christmas cards!! I cut bits out and layered them up with foam pads for extra dimension. You can't see it too well in the photo, but that's what happens when the hubby wants the camera, and you have to rush a job!! - MEN!

Very elegant, Teri! I just adore the simple feel of the card. Although, it probably wasn't simple at all.
