First up is a card for the Create Along with us Challenge. I was inspired by this card by Erin Lincoln.
|Erin Lincoln's Card|
I stayed pretty true to Erin's card, with the exception of the border die she used (not released yet) and my color scheme, which was both darker and brighter than hers. I impressed my card front with the Peony Cover plate and that gave me a rough guide about where to sponge my flowers and leaves.
I thought the white areas looked a little stark, so I went over them with a very light sponging of Aqua Mist.
My next card is for the Day 5 Sampler Square Challenge. I've recently been teaching both of my teenaged daughters how to drive, so I find myself looking at road signs more closely than usual. I had this idea to use a bunch of the different arrow dies from Get to the Point.
I pulled out 9 different colors of PTI card stock and die cut 9 different arrows from Get to the Point. Then I stamped each arrow using Versamark ink and a variety of different PTI background stamps.
It was still looking a little stark, so I boldly (foolishly) started doodling--I added faux stitching around all the boxes and random little white dots from my white gel pen. I stamped a sentiment from Retro Style Graduation and an arrow from Live Love Life. I think this will be a fun card to give one of my girls as they head out on their next adventure.
Thanks for Visiting
