Daring Cardmakers-Teen Spirit!!!

Rachel has set her first dare at Daring Cardmakers and a very good one it is too.
It came in very handy to make me get some cards done for the local shop and this is one of the designs I did.
Spotty background has been made by using a piece of sequin waste as a mask and applying Versamark ink through it. I then dabbed over with turquoise chalk to set the ink and then rubbed more on in places to give a distressed finish.
The white circle has been grunged with a StazOn ink pad and then layered onto a punched scallop circle.
The handbag is from a Sizzix die cut in silver with a turquoise layer which has been stamped with a tiny flourish stamp from a Studio G mini set and sponged with Asphalt ink.
Thanks for looking.

  5. Cool, card, Sheila! Like me I re-read the dare after making my card, not quite what Rachel wanted, I think! Love reading your blog as you go into great detail of how you made your cards. Just bought a set of alcohol inks this week what you did with yours interests me. Plus got a belated Chrissy present, a Cuttlebug, wait for it - for $65NZ about 26GBpounds!! Cos had none in sale after Xmas so got a raincheck!!
