I'm off today to visit my son and his family for some work projects. My daughter will be joining us and we girls will be painting and whatever else needs to be done to finish up projects around their house. It sounds like work I know but we always have a wonderful time doing it. Before I go, I have two cards to share with you.
First up is TIME OUT. I hate to tell you how many times I tried to make a card for this challenge. Nothing looked good. I was doing my old "follow the photo exactly" thing and I learned my lesson. Go with what speaks to me.
I tried strips of nearly matched to the photo DP with feathers of different colors. I tried paper piecing an arrow. I almost gave up when I found a piece of paper that gave the essence of the photo and everything fell together.
I cut up the bottom like the opening of the tepee and used that space for my sentiment from HA. I clear embossed the feathers from Clearly Besotted and colored them with Distress Inks. I'm happy now.
This next card I made for CASE this Sketch.
I just got an order with a darling dragonfly die and knew it was meant to be.
Isn't she just precious? I cut her from colored vellum and sparkle embossed it to give it that shine. Sorry it doesn't show in the photo. I cut a body from black and used black sparkle embossing powder on it. The flower from Memory Box is four layers, two white and two green. Finishing it off is a sentiment from Penny Black. Since the colors look lime and aqua, I'm also sending this to The Card Concept Challenge as clean and simple.
Thanks for stopping by. I won't be able to visit you for a while but I'll try to catch up when I get back on Thursday. Happy Creating!
