I am popping in to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do. It is for Jackson's Digital Expressions #20 (anything goes with an optional sketch), Craft Your Passion #125 (emboss it), Through The Craftroom Door Challenge #33 (diva or anything goes) and Tuesday Throwdown #113 (bold or rarely used colors).
Here is the JDE sketch, which I did use:
Here is my card:
I used SU Brilliant Blue cardstock for my base and mats. Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a big fan of bright, bold colors and I rarely use them. And look, NO patterned paper! I actually can't remember the last time I made a card with no PP! Instead, I embossed two panels of white cardstock, one with the Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade folder and the other with a Sizzix folder called Damask. My elegant image is Diva from Fine Arts by Robert Jackson. You can find it in the Females section of Robert's store here. I printed her on X-Press It and colored her with my Copics (dress: B28, B26, B24, B21) I added Star Dust Stickles to her wrap to make it sparkle. The sentiment is from Create With TLC. It is part of the Glitter and Glam Digi Stamp set in Paulette's store here. A double-loop satin bow and a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my card.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day and hope to see you soon!
Your card and image are very elegant and love the blue and the embossed backgrounds and the bow is just enough embellishment-thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown this weekReplyDelete
