Something New and lots of old!


I'm doing another round up post of the last few Daring Cardmakers cards from the last few weeks.
The dare this week it's Lythan's 'Something Old, Something New', here's my card:

I used three new things and three old things. The new were a Kaisercraft stamp which I stamped in grey and then over stamped the flower bits with silver, the background I made with a Hero Arts ink dauber in pastel mint which I'm currently addicted to and the last something new is the paper at the bottom which is from Pink Paislee Merry and Bright collection and was an off cut from my Christmas mini book making. The old are the sequins, the dove is a sequin too they've been in my stash forever because there were like 400 in a packet and the little holly die cut I think came from a craft swap a long time ago.

This next card was Kathy's candle dare and I made my candles with washi tape and little bits of thread at the tops for the 'wick' bits. I went with the neutral colours as I figured it was a good keep in card because you can give that to anybody.

Last one is from my November colour dare which was to use a mix of metallic. I made the rose gold using a red metallic rub on wax over the top of a gold paper die cut, ( Docrafts Xcut feather dies). The circle is from the Silhouette store, it was one of the free shapes of the week ones. I cut it out in white and then gilded it with faux gold leaf. The holly bits are hand cut out and I added some Prima Say it in Crystals as the berries, the top ones I painted over with some Nails Inc nail polish which is a rose gold glitter and you can't really tell from this photo but the leaves are covered with silver leaf at the top and the bottom ones are gold glitter.
