I'm fighting off a cold that I've had since last Wednesday. I think I'm starting to feel better, but I'm not sure yet. None the less, apparently being sick does not cramp my creativity. I managed to craft five tags today before I just got too tired to continue. All the papers used are from K & Company. I'm not sure which line as I found the paper in a pile of scraps from a few months ago! Time to use those up!
Of late, things have been pretty crazy in Paper Over Shoes land. I'm thrilled that I finally found some free time to sit down and craft something. This week Mojo Monday was celebrating their 300th design challenge with several prizes up for grab. I just had to enter! Here's the design:
And here's what I came up with! I finally got to play with the Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar paper and embellishments that I won back in May! I'm really loving the color scheme in this particular collection and had a lot of fun picking and choosing which to use in this card.
Here's a card I created using my Perfect Layers tools and the Violet Leaf stack from DCWV. I stamped the peacock in teal chalk ink and used markers to color in the white spaces with green and add purple accents. I'm really pleased with how this one came out!
So, I've discovered the Mojo Monday Blog! Every Monday the folks at Mojo Monday issue a new sketch challenge. This card is my first entry. I used DCWV's Violet Leaf collection and stamps from Studio 112 and Recollections. I colored the dragonfly in with markers and highlighted it with a Gelly Roll Stardust pen. I really like how this one turned out!
Here are a couple of cards I've made in the past couple of weeks. The birthday card was made with DCWV's Mango Frost collection, and the other card was made with the Spring Fling collection by Teresa Collins. I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, especially the birthday card. The flower was made by embossing the images on white paper, and then I used Faber Castell Gelato medium to color them in. I'll be experimenting more with those in the future. They're a pretty versatile medium.
A good friend of mine celebrated her birthday today, so I crafted this card for her from Basic Grey's Lauderdale card kit. I livened it up a little with liberal use of glitter pens and bling. I don't think I'm capable of making a card without bling. It might be my trademark. . .
It’s time for a catch-up post! The holiday season was awfully busy, and a
shoveling accident messed my wrist up enough that I wasn't able to craft for a
while. I did manage to craft a journal
for a friend’s birthday back in December, and a Valentine card or two. This week I spent some time making tags, so
here are pictures of those, too.
