While getting over my recent bout with bronchitis I started making cards with different flavors to them hoping to enter them in challenges. I managed to created a few that met some requirements so I am going to share them and go ahead and enter them.
My first card was the hardest for me because of what it represents. Sympathy cards are not my favorite kind of card, and its the hardest for me to decide on. "Do I want it dark and subdue?" or should I not be so somber. What will they think if I use white, is that too close to a wedding? What colors are allowed and which ones aren't acceptable? All these questions for one card and then when I do decide on what to do it takes me a while because I think about the representation and there's a sense of sadness to my card...so add flowers I tell myself...select a soothing color to offset the whiteness.
Fortunately I had recently made a very similar card so I just followed that with some changes. After all that pondering this is what I decided on:
I am entering this card in the challenges:
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
Perfect Sentiments - PSC44 Clean and Simple Sympathy
This Magnolia stamp has always been one of my favorites and now I get to use her. The papers are from a new MME 6x6 pad but I just can't remember which pad it was from. Anyway I am entering this card in the following challenge:
One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Anything Goes
This card was based on a drawing my grand-daughter did while watching television. The tags actually can be inserted inside the vertical brown ban but because of the sketch challenge I am entering I had to re-arrange the tags and somehow fit them to the outside so it would fit the sketch. I am entering this card in the following Sketch Challenge:
The Outlawz Sketch Challenge "SC080812"
Last but not least I finished my ocean card. I colored the image with copic markers and stained the edges with Distress Inks. I am entering this card in the following challenge:
Party Time Tuesday - By The Sea
BTW: There is a challenge or should I say blog candy giveaway over at "Doing Life" so make sure you check it out and enter for the prize drawing. Desire Fourie is a talented designer and I am sure you will like what you see on her site.
Well thats it for now. I have to see if there are any other challenges my cards will fit while I work on one I hope to enter before its over. I'm always missing out on challenges because I take to long to create the card. Now I have four more cards that need a challenge!
Thank you for visiting me and I would love to hear from you, so leave your comments.
