My Cards are becoming ongoing projects, an idea is spurred from a few challenges, and then as the week goes on, my card evolves as more challenges come up. I'm having a great time playing! lol.
March is a busy month for me on the card front, which also runs into a very busy April too.
On top of my usual load of cards I have 3 leaving cards to produce for work too, sadly for people I don't want to go.
This is the 1st of my leaving cards, not your usual leaving card admittedly
but it's personalised for one of the lads I work with.
I had some papers leftover from my mum's steampunk card, so I thought I'd use them up.
My colleague is into skulls, so I made some skull paper. Embossed some other paper with those Tim Holtz steampunk embossing folders that I purchased last week, and then distressed them with a sanding block.
I followed the sketch from sketch Saturday, turning it on it's side. I have to confess the sketch didn't really do anything for me to start off with, until I saw the lovely designs by the DT team, and inspiration was sparked!
I had some cardboard on my desk, from a delivery I'd had earlier, it almost went in the bin, but I started playing around with it having had the thoughts of a couple of challenges in my head of colouring on kraft & something recycled. I thought I'd grunge it up a little, added an inked border and cut down the edge with spellbinders edgeabilities classic scallop die. This time I've used 'Bodacious Bev' from Kenny K's. Coloured in tones of green to go with those papers.
I've given her some wings, so she's now a sexy vampish guardian angel to look over my colleague for what ever the future holds for him.
I'm entering the following challenges with this card
CES Challenges - Challenge # 77 - Kolouring on Kraft - Kraft layer coloured with distress ink, and border applied
Flutterby Wednesdays - Challenge 195 - anything goes as long as your creation has a butterfly, fairy or angel on it!!
