CCCB#9 - Venice,beyond Gondola

Kirsty from City Crafter Challenge Blog has picked Venice as the theme for this weeks challenge. I got really excited when I saw what the challenge was because I knew I'd got some Venice themed papers stashed away somewhere that I'd never used.Venice is one of the places on my list to visit,it seems such a beautiful,romantic city,who knows one day I may get there!
Kirsty posted a beautiful photogragh of Venician masks for inspiration.

I really enjoyed doing this challenge as it was something a little bit different to what I'd normally do,in fact I ended up making 2 cards! Here's the first card I made with the Crafty Individuals 'Travels in Italy' paper pack and coordinating stamp.


I picked my favourite paper with the mask on as the background and stamped onto the tag in Milled Lavender Distress Ink.I edged the tag in Dusty Concord and added a flower,swirl and sentiment.
I made the flower from a brown paper bag,punching out about 8 scalloped circles, stamping them with a text stamp,add a brad and scrunch all the layers up then open out.The swirl is a Tim Holtz Grungeboard Element painted gold and distressed with Dusty Concord.
The next card I made was for Fathers Day using part of the same stamp and some Tim Holtz sheet music from the Lost and Found paper pack,then added some buttons.


Back Soon!!!
