For the past few weeks, Claire at Waltzingmouse has been coming up with a challenge for us every Monday. I'm a little late in the game because I have been under the weather. I've been sneaking to my desk between lying in bed and sleeping. This card took me four days to make - CRAZY! There is still time to play along before a new challenge is issued on Monday. You can get all the deets here. This week is a color challenge that Claire is appropriately calling Cranberry Sauce.
For all the gradient shades of red I layered colored card stock, paper roses, and inked up the heart in three different shades of ink. To make the accordion heart I stamped 3 hearts, folded them in half and adhered them together stacking one folded half on top of the other. When I fan folded it open I adhered it to a plain die cut heart.
Here's my finished card:
Don't forget the blog party is on the 17th of this month. The theme this time is doilies We've all got some - I can't wait to see all the beautiful designs! You can get all the information here.
