I'm back with another early morning post. I was so tired yesterday I promised myself an early night last night, but it never works out that way does it?! I always find some way to distract myself from going to bed at night but yet I can't seem to tear myself away from it in the morning. I've always been the same, I think it's a family trait!
Time though, for another challenge with the Creative Card Crew. This fortnight we are being sponsored by the fabulous Scrapping Center
They're offering a $15 store voucher to one lucky winner!
The challenge for the next fortnight, to be in with a chance to win, is...
No Designer Paper!
How's that for a toughy! I love my papers and was a bit stumped as to what to do.
Some of the DT decided to use the fabby Saturated Canary "Sweet Oklahoma" image that Krista did especially for our Mari with the proceeds going to her lovely daughter after her home was destroyed in the Oklahoma tornado. So I knew that I wanted to keep it simple.
Here's what I did;
I printed the image out and kept the card big enough to make up the front of the card. I coloured the sweet image with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E44,43,42,41. Clothes: RV06,04,02,BV04,00,0000,G24,21,20,Y15,13,11,RV13,11,10,BG07,05,01. Grass: E49,31,YG67,17. Puddle: B01,00,000,0000.
The sentiment is computer generated and the font is called Ribbon Happy. I used different coloured bakers twine and attached a charm from my stash with a jump ring. A few swarovski's were added to the corner just to finish it off. I mounted it on some corresponding card to hide the icky colour bleed on the back of the card.
The inside is even plainer than the front! With a WRS sentiment and some more bakers twine.
So take a trip over to the Creative Card Crew blog to see the rest of the DT's work and see if you can join us with no design paper - I dare ye!
