Two cards with lots of white space today. It's opening day for the Pirates who are hosting my genetically favorite team, the Cubs. I can't help but be a Cubs fan, it's kind of a hereditary thing. Great Grandma, Grandpa, Dad, and now me. A few of my kids are too, and I've been teaching my Brewers influenced grandkids the "Go, Cubs, Go" song. But enough baseball...for now...
First card up is pretty full of shades of white. A few pops of color, but mostly white. This was my take on the very serene photo over at TIME OUT Challenge. Check this out...
Now, while I like butterflies, I don't own many suitable butterfly stamps. So I cut one out on my Silhouette. All the different shades of white, either from shadows or different items called out to me. As did the white painted paneled wall. Here's my take:
Every stitch of paper, except for the Neenah white base are from the two scrapboxes. I know that the dp is from a 6x6 Authentique pad, and the scored, woodgrain is from Gina K., and the white frame is a left-over from a die cut. A bit of Karen Foster twine, HA stamp with PTI ink. The photo is a little dark, but when I lightened it, the woodgrain faded. So bear with me on this one.
Up next, I'm playing over at the Card Concept before the deadline passes, and also at CAS(E) this Sketch, and Less is More. As I need to get ready to head over and have my taxes done, I'll keep the rest of this short.
You can see the requirements for the first two, and then over at LIM, the theme is 'round & 'round. Here's my take:
Again, all scraps except for the Neenah white base. The baseball was cut with my Silhouette, and the font was computer generated. A TE polaroid die for the frame around the baseball. Not quite CAS. I'd call it clean and layered, as there are several layers of cs on the focal point. And with that, I'll stop now. Happy dances everyone.
