Well it's another month over with, is it just me or are they flying by? So it is time to reveal what I did for Deborah's February CCC.
Firstly this is the card that I got from the very lovely Isha (in Switzerland). Isha tells me that she is quite new to stamping! I wish I had Isha's talent for colouring ;D. Thank you so much for this beautiful card Isha, I have it on display near my crafting space.
Now here are the cards & holder that I made for the very lovely & talented Pia. When I first saw the colour scheme for this challenge my first thought was "On NO" as I'm not a purple person. So much so I had to go out & buy some purple cardstock to finish this project.
I used a few different techniques for these cards, for example I used mini misters, ink & perfect pearls in green & purple for two of the backgrounds on the cards.
This next card is actually about a third of the size of the others & that is the one I used to write in for Pia. The others I all left blank so that Pia could use them as she wished. If you look closely at the frame around the bird you will notice it's slightly darker. I used my versamark embossing pen & clear embossing powder for this.
Lastly here is the card Holder I made for all these cards. For some reason after thinking it was going to be so very hard to make a green/purple card I ended up making about eight of them. Five to Pia & the others I've either donated or given away.
Thanks for sticking through this very long post :D. I hope I didn't bore you to much. Have a great Sunday - TTFN
