House of Cards - September 5th Week Inspiration

Hello Crafters,

Not much of the month of September left now but just enough to provide a 5th week of inspiration at the House of Cards Challenge.

Grab the badge!

For those of you who are familiar with the way things work, you will know that on the 5th week of a challenge, it's a photo inspiration theme and any card making style goes so even more reason to join in the fun!!

For those of you who are new to this fabulous challenge, here it is in a nutshell for you

Here's how House of Cards works --- there will be a monthly sketch or colour scheme given which covers all 4 weeks.  
Each week, we will ask entrants to enter a specific card making style.  

If there is a 5th week within a calendar month, it will be any card making style goes with a photo inspiration.

Here's the 5th week photo inspiration this time:


And here's the card I made:

I made a 6" x 6" tent card, the DP is from Country Companions and it's matted onto a muted yellow cardstock from American Crafts and also onto gold mirror board.

The image is the wonderful Tilda from Magnolia, still my favourite character stamps I think, despite there being many fantastic characters out there in craftland
I coloured her using my Copic markers and glittered her wings using Stickles glitter glue.
I sat her on a Spellbinders label die cut shape and matted her onto more muted yellow cardstock.  I went around the edges with TH distress ink - Vintage Photo.

The inside of the card was decorated to match the front of the card.

Please do join in with the fun over on the House of Cards Challenge and check out what my team-mates and what the other teams made too.

Thanks for visiting
