Yep, a second card today from me. Not a DT card this time around, but one just 'for fun'! LOL. So I wrote down a few challenges & this is the resulting card.
I used the lovely sketch over at Glitter Geeks as the basis layering up my cards & papers with glue gel as well as tape for a variety of layers & depths. Whilst I had used these particular colours on a card which posted only last week, this time around the tones are far more subtle & soft - which I thought suited this picture of innocence from A Day for Daisies far more (& the image, if you are interested, is being offered as a freebie to anyone wanting to join in with their challenge). I coloured her (with my Promarkers, of course! LOL), but kept it all a lot more simplistic than some of my cards to try to retain some of that innocence. I popped her circular mat into the centre of a couple of layers created with a Spellbinders die to turn it into the centre of a flower - and the sentiment, from Artistic Whispers was recoloured & then also die cut to match the central mat.
The white satin ribbon (which is one of those my daughter brought back from India when she was there) was layered up with a narrower green satin ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons. The gems are by Anita's & the twine, in the centre of my layered buttons, is actually pale green like the 'bling' but it might be difficult to tell this from the photo.
|Sorry, it's not a very clear photo so I hope you can see the image too.|
I also gave the card a coordinating inside using a traditional kind of insert, recolouring the A Day for Daisies image to pink, fading it a little & setting it behind a sentiment that actually came from Mo Manning a while ago, placing to the top & bottom of the insert so that the name of the recipient etc., can be written in the middle over the background image. I then cut the insert to size using a scalloped blade which I thought also tied in with the scalloped flower shapes on the front. Voila!
Have a great day & happy crafting everyone.
