Twofer Card Challenge-Leaves-I am too late! Hahahaa
Of course, I am late because that's who I am but I am showcasing the 2 together anyways. I had some fun on the weekend despite feeling a little icky from the Astra Zenica shot. I had the shot on Friday and felt stoned when I left. I would not have been able to drive so I am so thankful hubby drove me. I felt tired on the weekend but I felt more icky yesterday but nothing major to be honest. I still did a walk and made some cards plus tried to watch some shorts on youtube for the Oscars.
Color Throwdown-Deeper yellow, orange, red and kraft
Addicted to Stamps-Birthdays
I stamped my leaves on basic white cardstock and coloured them in with prisma colour pencils before adding the gamsol alcohol to smooth the colour out.I took Kraft cardstock and embossed it for the background. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it in orange and red before adhering everything together. To give a finishing touch, I coloured the border stickers in red and orange and placed them on the card.
The Fairy & The Unicorn-Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations- Fantasy & Magical
Don't these 2 lovebirds look so happy!? They are in nature and just seem to dance to their own tune with no one else around. I was going to add red but, to be honest, I forgot. I still think love is magical especially in the early days before we let it all hang out, burp, fart and scratch while sitting on the couch. Anyway, let's get back to fantasy where I took this cardstock and sprinkled these new color bursts that are glittery. I add water to the card and watch the color just come alive. Once dry, I started stamping trying to make a wooded scene where the fairies are dancing in joyous rapture. I coloured the berries in sparkle blue and some of the leaves in green. I added stickles to their wings and berries. The leaves stamp is the same one i used in the above card.
Christmas Card Throwdown-Stamping
I was playing with my distress sprays as well and had bought a new one-Robin's Egg blue which I wanted to try. I sprayed it with grey and another blue to achieve this effect. I thought it looked perfect for an angel in the sky so I stamped my angel in a blue and embossed it in a dark blue and a sparkly silver. I did the same with the sentiment and the snowflakes before gluing it to the glitter base card. This was a lot of fun and not too taxing.
Today I am feeling better. I enjoyed watching the Oscars including the dresses where Regina King looked stunning but Laura Dern looked like she left her nest of eggs to come to this event. I do wish Boseman would have won...that was a big upset.
