This week none of my photos have been matching any of my patterned papers... what's wrong with me?? It's just not coming together. So... I've done some cards instead. I grabbed my scraps folders and I've been determined to empty them all out so I have an excuse to go scrap shopping. Maybe. Or maybe I'll just pretend to be a cardmaker until my scrap mojo returns.
So... the first card:
# Some Odd Girl ~ Style Challenge ~ sketch
I used the April freebie - Mae's Bouquet
# ABC Challenge ~ S is for ~ sparkle
I used Stickles 'Crystal Ice' on the flowers and Mae's eyes and the embossed dots.
# Kaboodle ~ Challenge 28 ~ digi girl
Other products: MME and Basic Grey papers, Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' EF, Fiskars edge punch and Spellbinder Nestabilities dies, Brilliance ink (gold), Bazzill kraft cardstock
I got a shout-out at Some Odd Girl for my card!! And I get to display this awesome blinkie:
Bit of a story to the next one - I had a lovely scrappy night with this gorgeous girl and this gorgeous girl last night. I took all night to make just two cards - we did a LOT of chatting and experimenting with some other "creative recipes" (*wink*) so it's no surprise we didn't actually do much scrapping... But anyway, the Stickles glitter wasn't quite dry when it was time to go home, so I left the cards on the top of my scrapping box so they wouldn't smudge. And it was raining... and on the way to the car the cards got sploshed... and I didn't notice till I got home that my pirate card got all smudged :(
The art critics here at home tried to placate me and said it still looks okay because pirates get wet all the time; it just looks a bit more distressed than intended. I'm not so sure. I haven't decided yet if I'll reprint the image and colour again to replace that layer, or just leave it and wallow... Hmmmm... for the moment, this is the warts-and-all version:
# Pollycraft ~ Challenge 39 ~ pink, brown and yellow
I used 'Ethan Pirate' - a Friday Freebie from earlier this year
# Simon Says ~ Let's go to the movies
My theme is 'Pirates of the Caribbean'
# Allsorts ~ Week 48 ~ In Stitches
