Hello everyone here we are another month gone by we are at the shaped card challenge had planned to do something more for this one but am struggling with my hands so have gone for this instead which I can say I am happy with so hope you all enjoy as well
Clarity Gelli plate card
Clarity Thank you stamps / bouquet stamp
Adirondack Egg plant ink pad
copy paper
spellblinders large dies
Calbur machine
Score board /Craft Knife

Lets get started I put this die through my machine twice to cut two circles one for the front
and the back

 Using the egg plant ink pad which I feel gives this imagine a nice colour different from the black which felt would be to dark so stamped the thank you

Taking a piece of copy paper I drew with pencil inside the circle of die and with knife cut the middle out so I could use this as a mask as did not want the flowers to stamp onto the frilly edge

 Place this over the image using masking tape at the back to keep the mask in place

 again using the egg plant stamp the flowers around the edge and the rest of the sentiment

with your other circle put the two cards together so that the right sides to the dies are on the out side match up the pattern edge then just mark on the white circle which will be the back where you would like your score so card will open so that they will match up at the end you can rub this out after

 Then scoring down this edge both sides this will make your opening and allow your card to stand

 Using my Promarkers I have shaded the flowers using yellows and oranges two different greens for leafs to give you a good shading with Aubergine Promarker with the fine nib work wavy lines through the thank you then highlighted the thank you with lemon promarker to make this pop

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did thank you for stopping by hope you enjoy this month's challenge
