This first card is for the Card Patterns sketch 48. I'm really pleased with this card mainly because these aren't my normal "go to" colours. I find oranges, pinks & yellows really challenging especially when put all together. Tell me what do you think of this combo, is it too over the top? I kept the this card very simple just adding a ribbon to cover a join in the background paper & Swarovski Crystals to the owl's eyes & flower. These little "gems" are fantastic as they give such a brilliant shine. As usual my photography sucks ;), so you don't get to see them really shine.
This next card is actually for three challenges. Cardvaarks Red heart challenge, Hero Art's Friendship/Valentines challenge & also for Penny Black's Something Sweet challenge. Although I'm not sure I should enter this into the Hero Art's challenge as it only has a sentiment from them. Well as they say you never know if you don't give it a go.
The first pic shows a close up of the chipboard heart that I coloured in with my Prismacolour pencils, added a small amount of glitter, then a fabric heart & finally covered with glossy accents. I also used perfect pearls on the flower.
For this card I decided to use some of my patchwork fabric. I am really pleased with the way this card came together. I knew mucking around with my fabrics the other day would be a good thing ;D.
I can't believe how creative I've been over the last few days. I seem to have gotten into a real groove as far as my mojo is concerned :). I think doing sketches or having guidelines has been helping & also not worrying about which stamps I "have" to use. Well I'm off to do some more creating - TTFN
PS Happy Australia Day to any fellow Aussies :D
