A Day For Daisies
By grabbing snatches of time here and there today, I did manage to put together two new cards. Both use A Day For Daisies images that I had pre-colored.
The first I call, "Silver Cinderella" because I gave her silver hair. (Can you guess why?) At least I attempted to do so. I am not very good at coloring hair - YET.
I did this card for the POM challenge at The Outlawz this week. The challenge is to make your own DP. I made mine by sponging an embossing folder with Versa Mark and running it through my BigShot with a piece of white cardstock. Then I sprinkled on Moonglow embossing powder and heat set it. Next I lightly sponged Green Pear (SU) ink onto the leaves and vines. I finished by chalking the birds and other random spots with a sky blue pastel. I spritzed the whole thing with hairspray and used my heat gun on it again. I really like how it turned out. A bit of ribbon, pearls and flowers later and of course, that gorgeous ADFD image, and my creation was done.
My next card was quite a bit more challenging, but well worth the effort. It is a tri-fold shutter card. I saw one on a CDAC group today and was determined to figure it out. I found a tutorial, and after scratching my head in confusion multiple times, I finally got it figured out. The design was perfect for another ADFD image & sentiment set called, "Star Sleeper". What a lovely card it will make for a new baby boy. It think I will try this fold again soon so I don't forget how to do it. Once you figure it out, it really is quite simple. I hope you like the result.
Well, tomorrow is Saturday and you know what that means - YARD SALES, here I come! I'll be up early and in search of treasures, especially those I can use on my cards.
