It was indeed the best weekend and I ended up with over 8 colored images that needed to find their place on a card. So wouldn't you know that a design came to me while I was at work and I could hardly wait to get home. But this must have been the longest Tuesday I have ever encountered. The last two hours were very painful but finally I made it home and then realized that I had to catch up with my challenge...especially since it was about to end..I mean in a few hours. Anyway while I wait on the ticking clock to wind down I'll go ahead and share a card with everyone.
I created this card using regular card stock (the really cheap stuff). I embossed the purple cardstock although on the photo it appears to have a blue tint to it and then I stamped the image on watercolor paper (again the cheap stuff). Then I proceeded to color it using Ranger's Distress Markers and a bit of water. I love how it turned out although you can't see it that well here. The flowers and ribbon I added after cutting the flower out with Spellbinders floral oval.
On this photo I tried to zoom in so you could see the shading I created a bit better and I added a little sparkle with my spytu pens (spelling error I'm sure) but you know what I mean. I don't have all the distress markers yet but I am working on it and should have them all shortly. There are only 37 of them so far but who knows what next year will bring.
Lastly, is the inside of my card. I used the same oval from Spellbinders, the same ribbon and then as an added touch I embossed the left side of the card with glittering embossing powder. It might be a bit to much but it added a little shimmer that I love. This card could serve for various occasions and that is a good thing.
Well now it is time to close out my challenge and it was absolutely wonderful to see all the creations. I wish I could give out multiple prizes but unfortunately I can only have so many per challenge. We have two winners that I am going to use Random Generator to announce and the winners selected are numbers:
I have decided to enter this card in Tammy's Scrapin Corner Weekly Anything Goes Challenge # 21
