I tripped across a nice card challenge today while visiting Angela Maine's blog "from the tool shed" (a must see as well). This card challenge is called "The Card Concept". Quite interesting, they analyze and identify the different styles of card makers. You select the DT to CASE, and the style card you'll be making.
I've been playing with watercolours and extra wet watercolour papers lately. It's fun...it's messy too!
I just bought my stamp set (Happy by Pink Paisley) at Bluemoon Scrapbooking and they are also the proud sponsors of the new card challenge (mine) AAA Card CAS Challenge. The first challenge will be May 5th 2014. I also got new inks there too. I'm SO LUCKY.....Bluemoon Scrapbooking is a mail order company and they just happen to be located in Tucson. Whee!
I've sewn the panel to the card body and stamped the 2 images in Tumbled Glass. It took a lot to get it dark/bold. I also took some of my beautiful yet drying out Color Box Petals to lightly edge the sentiment and umbrella. To get the 3-D effect of the sentiment I've cut 2 small dashes and inserted 2 opposite corners, like the way a business card is attached to a letter, but cut too small to make it bow outward. It's a little hard to see, but the umbrella is covered in fine clear glitter. Tiny, tiny pieces of pop tape were used as well.
I'm a "clean and layering" card maker apparently. I always wondered what my style would be referred to. I followed the style presented by Kay Miller and Kerin Sylvester
