I hate it when I think I've done something, and then something unrelated reminds me that I haven't done what I thought I had done... yes, I managed to miss another personal blog post.... I had the challenge post set all good and well, and completely forgot my personal post. I can't even say that I left it set on 'draft' ... I plum didn't do it! Argh! So here goes..
This week at Card Crafter's Circle, our #34 challenge for you is SHAPED CARDS. We want you to think outside the square and rectangle. We are sponsored by MelJen's Designs and Stamp Art Design by Kathryne (both offering a prize of 4 digis for two random winners) ...
Stamp Art Design by Kathryne.
I have printed the image and changed it's colour settings in MS Word - the white parts of the original image are now 'aged' a speckled off-white. I coloured it's beak, eye and feathers with glitter pens and metallic pens, and fussy cut the image. I fixed the top half of the image to a cardbase made of handmade paper/card, and then fussy cut... the card is hinged at the left. I then created a layer of hessian fabric ( I removed some outer threads) and fixed it to the cardbase, then added some wee chocolate pearls. I then fixed the lower portion of the image.
Although it is still a larger than normal card, it doesn't leave much space inside for a message... but it looks good sitting on the shelf!
So I hope you'll grab your scissors, templates and die cutters, and join us in our SHAPED CARD CHALLENGE at the Card Crafter's Circle this week! Thanks for peepin'!
