Dress Form card - Kanban

What a beautiful day again yesterday, but nothing like it today. We had a great BBQ on Sunday with friends and the family here, sitting outside in the garden. It was gorgeous.
I have made a couple of cards using a Kanban set I bought from QVC a little while ago. Now normally I hate toppers and won't use them unless I have to, but these images really took me and I love them. The patterns, colours and images can all be intermixed from the set and of course I have added some distressing to go with them.


This is the second card I have made, and it's using the sketch this week from Simon Says Stamp. The other card  is sitting on a draft blog in Windows Live Writer on my now defunct PC, so I will need to photograph it again and show it to you at some point.


On this one I used the TH dress form die and added gold foiling round the edge using a Zig pen and a roll of gold foil also from QVC. The other things that have come from my stash are some green, brown and gold backing card, all the other elements are from Kanban.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Looking good...classic Brenda style! You have such a way with this style. I'll have to check out that gold foil. Glad your weekend went well, with family and friends. Our show was great, but we passed on the nice supper out. I had a stomach flu the night before...why not! My younger granddaughter broke her foot this weekend, just a small bone, but now she's in an air cast for 6 weeks. Some days are diamonds...no?

Juls said...

ooooh I just LOVE this .... I am the same as you, I am not really fan of toppers...however there are times when I just cant resist the images ... however when I make the cards up although i try and do my own thing ... and craft with the elements rather than slap it on a card ... however i am always dissapointed in the result, as it looks manufactured! ... I love how you have used the elements and created such a gorgeous work of art ... love your creativity!! Hugs Juls
