I have had a very productive day today - when the creative juices seemed to be flowing. This first post is about the card I made initially for the CD Sunday Challenge & then I later spotted it would probably fit the Allsorts Challenge as well.
Over at CD Sunday Challenge the theme is "Imagine" & I tried to imagine what this lovely character was thinking of. Then over at Allsorts Challenge the theme is "Spread your Wings" - well my lovely character has spread her wings.
Here is the card & then the way I created it
First I must say that the photo does make my images & background look rather blue when they are in fact different shades of lilac. Why does that happen? I notice on other blogs quite a few people make the same statement.
The background papers are plain & in fact are taken from the "colours" section on the CD, which is MCS Illustrious Images CD2. The image also comes from the same CD. I used one of my scalloped dies to cut out the main image & then added some flat back gems to decorate. Behind the image is a small doily that I have recoloured with a Promarker to match the image & background papers. The bow at the top of the card is one of those where you punch 2 holes a small distance apart & then thread a piece of ribbon from the front to the back, cross them over at the back & bring the ends up through opposite holes to create a faux bow. The ends are then trimmed to opposite angles. I had the idea, from absolutely nowhere, to put the greeting peel off on a matching piece of ribbon. I think it mainly came about because I didn't want to waste even that small piece of ribbon - which by the way was originally white & I used my Promarkers to colour it to match the card.
I hope you like my little card. I am now off to link it to its challenge blogs & then I will be back to tell you about the other challenges I made cards for.
