Color Throwdown-An orange, Mossy green and light pink-Missed it!
Craft Your Passion-Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps-Make your mark
Simon Says-Make for the border (I hope I got this right)
This card is for my best friend, Loretta, who is just the bee's knees (what the hell does that mean anyway??) and we are just meant to be friends forever! Her birthday was yesterday and she is going through one of the toughest times in her life and all I can say is how proud I am of her and will always be there for this wonderful lady. If she read this she may throw up:) I took some basic white cardstock and stamped and embossed in gold, the flowers. I used my tombow markers-I took my marjarine plastic dish and scribbled the marker on it, took my paintbrush, dipped it in water and placed it in the scribble. From there I "painted" the pot, leaves and flowers. I had the cut out remains of some shiny white paper and used my alcohol inks and dabbed it all over to get that mossy green with some orange peeking through. I layered the card in orange and soft pink, added the butterfly and pearls. I took some orange stickles and squeezed out the glitter around the border. She liked her card:) My hubby thinks it looks like it came from his grandmother's time:)
CHNC-Cute or Anything Goes Christmas
I was inspired by the song, and I have to admit, the video that was posted by Cherdo on the Flipside for her Battle of the Bands. The song she chose for the battle (you listen to 2 versions and pick which one you like better-it's a fun challenge-you can learn about it over at Battle of the Bands) is "Somewhere Only We Know." It's a lovely song and I have to admit I was taken with that video for my inspiration here. The bear comes out of hibernation to be with his bunny friend who really loves their friendship. I took some white cardstock, placed some tree stickers on and cut out a piece of paper to make it look a little hilly and used blue and purple stamp colours to colour in the sky. I took off the stickers and was left with the white impression which I then glittered up:) I cut out the tree with my sizzex machine and used perfect pearls to create the nice green colour on the tree:). I stamped the animals and used my gamsol pencils to colour them. I added the presents, some stickles here and there and Voila! I think this turned out pretty cute.
Today was a very nice day but it is supposed to get hot once again so get out your tiniest violin for me and play me that sympathy song. Hey! What song would you choose for such a hot summer?
