Have you noticed all the 'first-of-the-new-year' challenges loading up this week? I've got tons of ideas and can't wait play along with more. For today, I'm playing along with Merry Monday, I'm pretty sure it's my first time over there, but once you see the inspiration photo, you'll totally get why! That and good friend Ardyth is GD there...check out her awesome card. And for the first time in I don't know how long, I'm playing along with Make it Monday. Over at MIM, we're to concentrate on the corner of our cards...Had a ping for that, and it worked out for both challenges.
And Make it Monday....
This was my little ping:
As hard as I tried to get the blue to lighten up in the photograph, no dice. Think a shade or two lighter... this was pretty QACAS, to quote dear Darnell. Brown mat from a scrap, a scrap of aquamarine-ish on a Michaels white cardstock base. I used PTI's Wet Paint with Ranger's Archival Ink in Potting Soil. I ripped the legs off some ancient brads (did you hear them scream?), and used some glue dots to adhere them to the blue cardstock. And that's it. I didn't have any PTI flower stamps, and since I have a teeny-tiny rebel streak in me, I wanted to be different - so I thought out of the box a bit. Hope it counts! The blue is gorgeous in real life, and I'm liking this look. Happy dances everyone.
P.S. I will do my utmost to get caught up on comments asap.
