I am having a great crafting weekend with a couple more cards to share this morning.
I've been wanting to use this big & bold Mama Elephant sentiment and when I saw the colors for Colour Me Creative Challenge #99 I decided to make a Christmas card in nontraditional colors. Zig Clean Color watercolor pens were used to color the panel after the image was heat embossed. A splatter of white Color Shine was added after the panel dried and then it was mounted behind an MFT Rectangle Frame.
This card is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge at the Wednesday Challenge Blog.
This next card was inspired by Tracey McNeely's Muse #143 inspiration card.
This is definitely one of those cards that started in one place and ended up somewhere completely different, but I am really happy with the final result.
As you can see, several elements are used from the inspiration card with a slight twist. I used the same white/gold/red dominate colors with the gold embossing became gold glitter paper and the stamped ornament a die cut shaker forming the "o" in the die cut sentiment. ETA the ornament is made from the Memory Box Cabrini Ornament die cut three times. I just used scraps to cut the holly leaves & berries.
The shaker ornament is filled with microbeads and course glitter. It is amazing how photographs from different angles highlight different elements in the shaker.
The ornament string is wrapped over the top and adhered to the back of the card.
I hope to have some more crafting time today.
