I have often thought the print on the duvet cover in our guest bedroom would make a good card design, so when Shopping Our Stash announced their current challenge of Get Inspired By Your Bedding I knew I had to give it a try. I'd been trying to work out a way to make it when the new Allsorts challenge, of Frame It!, was announced, and then the vague idea that had been floating around in my head clicked firmly into place.
I made a background by lightly scribbling pink and blue bands onto watercolour paper, using watercolour pencils, then blending them into rough stripes with a wet brush. When it was dry I stamped all over with a tiny dandelion clock stamp (I got this years ago from an American company called Just For Fun - I don't know whether they are still around). Then I cut a triple-window frame: I don't have a die for this so it involved a lot of measuring and calculations.
The frame is applied over the background with 2mm foam pads. The finished card had no real focal point, so I added a sentiment on layered die cut circles.
and here is the bedding that nspired it
