Hi! I'm thrilled to be joining in with a group of wonderful card-makers from Australia and New Zealand for the ANZAC Day Friendship Remembrance Video Hop. This is the brain-child of Therese Calvird and I was thrilled when she asked if I'd be interested in joining. If you're not sure what ANZAC Day is head on over to Wikipedia for an explanation.
Now, I haven't made a video in nearly a year because I was using my son's Mac to edit the videos and he got sick of me always borrowing his Mac, so I stopped making videos 😭😭 But I'm back and I hope you'll like my card - plus there's a prize as well. Details at the end of the video and this blog post.
So my original thought when I was contemplating what card to make was to stick with the poppy theme and create a friendship card, but then when I was visiting my mum a few weeks ago, she showed me this new CTMH set and it was just perfect for my card, so my mum very kindly lent it to me.
I started by creating the alcohol ink panel onto Yupo paper using various purple inks. Once I was finished, I set that aside to dry and worked on the card base. I stamped the two poppy images in Grout Gray ink across the bottom of the card base, triple stamping because I think my ink pad is getting a bit dry! The sentiment was stamped in Black Soot Archival Ink. Originally, I had planned to stamp the soldier directly onto the alcohol ink panel, but it just didn't show up enough, so I stamped him onto white and used my Scan n Cut to cut him out. He is popped up on foam tape (and conveniently covers up the failed stamped image!)
And that's my card! You can watch the video here, or over on YouTube.
Now onto the prize. Leave a comment either on YouTube or in the comments below. You don't have to subscribe to either, but it would be appreciated 😉 I'll randomly draw one name to win either a brand new copy of the ANZAC Day stamp set by CTMH or Mama Elephant's Playful Pups stamp and die set (which I inadvertently bought twice!). I'll ship by airmail post to anywhere in the world.
