September Card Chain Challenge

Today I am sharing the card I made for the September Card Chain Challenge, from the four options I chose the sketch:

Here is my card:

 I used a stencil and clear glossy texture paste to get the stripe effect on the white panel (you can't see it particularly well in the photo) and mixed alcohol ink onto Yupo paper to create the effect in the circle. I added some foil while some of the ink was still sticky, I love this effect and it is so easy to do.

To finish it off I die cut a circle frame and stamped the sentiment. It went in the post to the USA and is now in the hands of the recipient.

I enjoy doing this challenge as it is great to actually receive a special hand made card and it could come from anywhere in the world. The feedback is even more special when someone has the card in their hands. I think I will take part again.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today.

Love the richly coloured AI piece and the foil gives it a special touch - beautiful! It is lovely to get a card as part of the chain, isn’t it? This was only my second month playing but I’m sure I’ll be back, too!
