I've got one card for two challenges today. What started out with circles and a tag has morphed into something completely different. I know I'm not alone when what I create turns out (at least in my mind) blecchhh, and then it has a short rest on the desk. After it's little nap, a bit o' cussing (the kind Fred Flintstone used only, no 'real' words), and a completely different direction, I reworked it. And then did it all over again. And again. But my kitchen inspired me...the newish glass tile backsplash. You'll see where I'm going with this in a sec. First I'm playing over at CAS - Colours and Sketches. They've got a Fallish color palette going on over there, and I really need some cool here. Check out the colors:
I didn't have anything quite like Summer Starfruit, but I think I came pretty close with my color choice. And over at Little Tangles, they've got a fun challenge that I knew, without a doubt, that I wanted to partake in (isn't that just a fun word...partake...kind of cracks me up...).
At Little Tangles, we are supposed to use some kind of wood or natural materials when making our card. See what you think. I've got wood veneer, browns, and leaves. I've used the colors for the first challenge too. Even though it took a few tries, I'm liking how it turned out.
It's a thank you card. I don't remember who made the dp, I've had it for several years, and is reversible as you can tell. The base and small cream colored squares are SU, and some unknown brown card stock scraps. Studio Calico made the little lady, Neat & Tangled stamps, and some of my favorite unusual fun stuff -- drywall tape. That cracks me up....Happy dances everyone!
I also want to send out a thank you to Nina over at Waffle Flower Paper Crafts. I was a very lucky girl, and my comment was drawn at random to win the AE Texture Tiles: Be Cool set. Anyone out there hear me scream this morning?!!
