It’s amazing how sometimes, even though your mind doesn’t know it, your hands know exactly what you want. That’s how I made this card. I was just fiddling with my distress inks and learning how to work with them. And this card was the end result 🙂
I’m not sure if the hand-drawn border did any good to the card.. Do you think I should have left the borders blank? Hmmm…
The Rhino , the sentiment and the grass are a part of the Lawn Fawn Stamp Set – Critters of the Savannah.! The hearts and the border are hand-drawn with red Sharpie. Coloured the Rhino using Spectrum Noir Marker..
Earlier this month, I came across the monthly challenge post at Catchy Challenges Blog.. 🙂 The challenge is to make a mini note-card of dimensions 3×3 and make a matching envelope for it.
Although it sounds pretty simple, it is tough to make cuz the area you are dealing with is very small. It’s about the size of the palm of your hand.
While making mini cards, it is kinda hard to know when to stop. I mean that’s how it is for me. Well, it’s like that for me with every card 😛 It’s like – how much is too much? I didn’t wanna go overboard so I have tried to keep it is as simple as possible.
I’ve made this card using the Lawn Fawn – Say Cheese Stamp Set and Sunny Skies Stamp Set.
I didn’t have any Airplane Stamp so I had to hand draw that one. Kind of screwed up the coloring on the plane though. And not sure if you noticed at first look, but I have forgotten to add the kite’s tail as well 🙂 Didn’t wanna spoil the card any more so I decided to let it be as it is.
I am back with another CAS card. I haven’t had a chance to use ribbons in any of my cards in quite a while. So, I had decided that whichever card I would make next would definitely have ribbons.
The card measures 6 x 5 inches. The white panel measure 5.5 x 4.5 inches.
I have used 0.5 inch wide ribbons along with Penny Black- Party Time stamp sets(cupcake and happy birthday sentiment) for making this card.
The following couple of photos will give an idea of how I achieved this look with the ribbons.
I coloured the cupcake using my Lyra colour pencils. Although initially stamped the cupcake using my ‘London Fog’ shade of Memento Ink, I re-did the cupcake outlines with my black Sharpie for sharper look.
Love the weekends. Saw the movie – ‘Beautiful Creatures’ today. It was a good movie but it could have been better. The concept was good so I am wondering if I should read the novel it was based on. Hmm…
After the movie, went to a Arts n Crafts Exhibition, sort of like Music-food-crafts festival, called the Madras Market. It is pretty amazing how many talented people are out there..
And then, I finally got a chance to use my new Floral Punch.. And here’s what I came up with..
What do you guys think?
So entering this card into the following challenges:
