I spent most of my weekend preparing for my Christmas card workshop coming up on Sunday. I decided to take a small break from that to create something different.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
|Inspired By #47|
Paper: Lucy, Blush CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH), Kraft CS (MFT); Stamp: Pure Innocence-You've Got Mail (MFT); Inks: Chocolate, Sweet Leaf, Heavenly Blue (CTMH); Tools: Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors, Corner Rounder, Sponge Daubers, Watercolor Pencils, Blending Pen, Glue Pen (CTMH), Scallop Border Punch (SU!); Other: White Daisy Embroidery Floss, Smoothie Brads, Paradise Flower (CTMH)
I was inspired by the pretty wrapped envelopes and color combo in the inspiration photo. I love modern technology, but gosh I wish I had that pretty pink typewriter. LOL I thought the soft color palette could best be enhanced with the fabulous kraft paper from MFT for my card base. Then, there's the sketch...if you know me, you know that I prefer things to be straight on the page. This sketch showed me that I could step out of my "comfort zone" and still love the finished product. (What do you think of my sponge daubering? This was so quick and easy. I can't believe I have never tried that technique before.)
Hope you have a happy, crafty Monday! Stay safe, my East Coast friends.
