"For this weeks challenge we would like to see an aperture in your creation. It can be any shape, size or quantity that you like (for those of you not familiar with an aperture, an aperture is a hole or opening that acts as a window on your creation, and of course not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation"
Well, yet again my blood ran cold when I saw what the challenge was to be this week -I have never made an aperature card in my life ! I was determined that I was going to make one myself and not cheat and buy one and decorate it ! I was actually surprised at how easy it was.
This is my creation for this week and what I used to make it :
The CS I used was Bazzill Basics "ruby slipper" which I covered with the scrummy BasicGrey Wassail patterned papers.
The aperature was cut with my nestabilities and I put a piece of acetate over it and stamped it with my Inkadinkado snowflake stamp and white Stazon. I also put a tiny amount of Stickles on the snowflakes to make them slightly glittery.
Tilda was very kindly given to me by the wonderful Martine and I coloured her in my newly acquired ProMarkers which came highly recommended by a few people (you know who you are !!) and I was pursuaded to buy some and try them out. I now "need" all 92 colours as I have fallen in love with them !
The poinsettias are Making Memories and have BasicGrey Wassail brads in the centres. I used gold Stickles on the petals and added a charm which I bought from e-bay.
The sentiment is a Studio G stamp.
The holly is also Making Memories which has gold Stickles on it too.
The snowflakes I bought from Potato Patch Crafts the last time I visited. These are gorgeous.
I'm showing two pictures of my card so you can see the inside a little and also those gorgeous snowflakes.
I'm looking forward to visiting you to see your fantastic creation this week !
Keep warm and well,
