I need to work on my titles, either start numbering them or come up with something witty and catchy, one day, in my to do pile.
For now we will just stick with whatever pops into my head at the time, as long as its not rude. I don't know about you but I spend a bit of each day looking through Feedly to see what challenges are on, how long till they finish etc. And I write myself little notes and my lists grow steadily as I have so many challenges I admire.
Then I go into my craft room, maybe make one card for a challenge cause its ending soon then
drift off into what I feel like making, then when its time to put on my blog have to go hunting for
challenges to suit the cards. Anyone else do that??? I must waste so much time, but then I love looking at all the wonderful blogs, seeing so many cards I want to do, I have a folder full of photos that had to be taken off my computer it was getting so data heavy lol. No shortage of inspiration there.
Okay enough sidetracking - here we go.
This card was inspired by the Less Is More challenge but I don't know if its
CAS enough to meet requirements but I sure loved making it. First I cut a tag
shape with just the paper cutter and then I taped it to the table top.
I used a NBUS balloon stencil and I cover the rows of
balloons only leaving one row showing at a time. Then I blended Distress Inks
light then bright going up the balloon, two colours to each balloon.
Once the blending was finished I added BoBunny glitter
paste, ohhh I love this paste, it dries clear and sparkly. Check it out. After adding the
paste I quickly remove the stencil so I can wash it and left the tag to dry.
Then I got a piece of kraft cardstock, folded into card and stamped all
over the front with Versamark ink and a couple of small balloon stamps.
I let that dry naturally.
I then attached the tag, a 'best wishes' diecut and finished off by taking a piece
of ribbon (I think its actually for binding) and added colours I had used for the balloons
with the blending tool. Sprayed on a bit of shimmer spray then left it to dry.
Made a double bow by first watching a clip on Youtube. Attached at the top of the tag
with a glue dot.
This is my second use of this card. Stamped and coloured with Copics.
This time I used three colours with each flower to five better shadow and light.
Started out it was going to be soft colouring but got brighter as I went.
I then used a glue pen to fill the 'hello' and added extra fine white glitter.
Added the 'gorgeous' sentiment and a few sequins and outlined the flowers in B000.
Yep found another poor unloved Penny Black stamp in my NBUS pile.
Isn't he wonderful, he actually comes with a sentiment but I decided to
go in a different direction.
Stamped on watercolour card stock, painted with zigs then finished off
with some copics. Outlined in blue.
Doesn't his face say it all. Then instead of the sentiment 'Hang in There' I
decided I liked this sentiment:
Is about to happen.
Finished off with a few enamel dots.
my 'Best Wishes' card was inspired by this challenge.
'Best Wishes' card for this challenge without
going with the Topping. I don't have felt
so that was an easy one.
