Some little time back, I saw that Jackie Rockwell was starting up not one, but TWO new challenges, The Cutting Edge Challenge, and Tag You're It Challenge. Missed playing the first round for both challenges due to commitments and a couple of things that came up without warning. This post will only have my card for The Cutting Edge. Hopefully by Tuesday I can post the other project for the Tag You're It Challenge. DT member Karolyn Loncon's card is our inspiration. Check this out!
How cool is that??!! So much inspiration packed into one 4.25" x 5.5" card.... This one was a bit of a challenge for me, as I don't do too much watercoloring. Love it, just have difficulty with it. I've got another idea, and maybe it will come to fruition, hopefully by tomorrow. For today, I did manage a card, after only one toss in the bin...
Oh Darnell, be proud of me...it's mostly NBUS. Or maybe I should be ashamed of myself after breaking my self imposed ban on no new goodies for the month of July....well, in all fairness, I did order this at the end of June, so it really doesn't count if it arrived in July, does it?!!! Anyway... Started with a Neenah white base, then watercolored a bunch of stripes on a scrap of wc paper. Die cut the stripes with my NBUS SC 'birthday' die, plopped it on a strip of black, and then added the rest of the sentiment above it. That's also SC. Three MME enamel dots, and done.
Next up is my second card for the fun-filled Virginia's View Challenge. Die cuts over there, and my whole card is nothing but die cuts! A little boat, a little stitched circle, and a word.
Every Wednesday, there's a regatta or sailing lessons or something with tons of sailboats on Lake Michigan. I can walk down to the end of my block (three whole houses) and sit on a bench and watch the sailboats as they float along the lake...very peaceful. Come on over, and we'll watch together!
Neenah white base, and ABSOLUTELY EVERY OTHER BIT OF PAPER IS FROM MY SCRAP BOX!!!! Yippee!! This was all cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I started out not really liking this card. But you know, the more I look at it, the more I like it. Must be one of those "grows on you" cards. And that's it for this post. Happy dances everyone.
Edited To Add: Over in the Moxie Fab World, they're having a "Wonderful Words Challenge," with option of back linking (up to four weeks) cards. Thought that both of these cards would fit well! Thanks to Donna Mikasa for letting me know! You're the best!
