So, I went all crazy today and actually MADE A CARD! Yes, I did! Than I got even crazier and here I am posting it on a blog that was headed for shutdown (still probably is - jury's still out)! Here it is:
It's a graduation card for one of my nieces. Inside it says, "So proud of the woman you are becoming". It's also for today's Featured Stamper challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. Magouille has a very full, very beautiful gallery. I chose this card to inspire mine:
I liked the text background, dress and color palette and wanted to incorporate those elements into my card. As you may remember, I don't really "do" techniques (like the stenciling and sponging and all of those things that Magouille is obviously very comfortable with), so my card is mostly not that...
I did do some stippling around the edges of the card, but mostly I printed the beautiful image (Skirt of Flowers from A Day for Daisies) onto some Prima paper and added some soft color with chalk (technically, it's eye shadow - potato/potato...). I used my Perfect Layers tools to cut some mats and I was done. Card measures 5" square.
Know what? I had so much fun MAKING something instead of just purging/organizing/indexing/blah blah blah, that I might stay crazy enough to do it again! Further bulletins as events warrant...
If anyone's still hanging around, thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
