CTC192 – Tranqil Textures


It’s been an exciting week for Demonstrators this week.  We have finally been able to register for Onstage in Orlando!!  And luckily, all 7 of us who are staying together, were able to register so Orlando Onstage Live, here we come!!!!  74 days until Bronwyn, Sandra and I depart.  I “may” have an app to count down.  Bring it on!!

So back on track with this week’s challenge, which is the Tranquil Textures section, pages 154-163 of the 2018 Annual Catalogue.


As I was flipping through all the lovely cards in this section, I decided to case the card on page 161.


I decided to cover a retired note pad I found in my cupboard.  I used a piece of watercolour paper and trimmed it to fit the note pad.  I then water coloured the background in Balmy Blue and let it dry.  I then embossed the sentiment in copper on a piece of vellum and I tore around the edges.

I then kept the same layout and added the branch and flowers the same.  I used a piece of copper trim down the side and added a bow which I then pulled apart (one of the things I love about the trim!!)


Here’s a close up of the bottom. Don’t you love that copper embossing!


Next up is fellow kitty lover, Peta.  I hope Marvi is making an appearance this week!
