Today’s card turned out pretty formal. I had this idea of putting red and gold scribbled roses from MFT into a rectangular shape. I tried several different color combinations and stopped on the formal black on black square. Maybe later I’ll repeat this design in craft or white.
Yesterday I continued experimenting with my “leather”. Turned out that it can be embossed just fine. I made an embossed stripe, put it on the “jeans” piece of paper, added the biggest sticker on the top, and BAM! The card is ready. I added a light border to bind it all together. Inside I added another piece of embossed “leather” imitating that label on the back of your jeans.
Today I made two more cards in country style and finished that set of stickers! Mission complete! Very proud of myself! 🙂
Today I continued to play with the Geometrical greenery set. First, I finished the green trio of cards with a partially watercolored one. Added a Spellbinder’s butterfly made from white cardstock and vellum.
Then I thought about the 4th of July coming, as well as red-and-blue card challenges, and decided to use the geometrical nature of leaves to make an abstract flag. So three simple cards came up with patriotic vibes and minimum embelishments.
Today I played with the MFT leaves set. It’s from last year’s collection, but I bought it only recently and I love it! The leaves are so versatile. I wanted to make a bright card, so I used the brightest greens I have – one from Jane Davenport’s bright watercolor set and one from Tim Holtz’ distress inks, Mowed Lawn. Plus some Forest Moss for interest. It was so bright that even vellum couldn’t tone it down, so I had to use two layers of vellum to make a focal point :))
The second card came very easily – I guess embossing and vellum always work together! 🙂 All in all I’m happy with the results 🙂 Here are pictures of the process and cards.
