Ambers Crafts and Stuff has a challenge right now to try a new technique. I thought I would challenge myself and try to make a card using technique,s or products, that I've never used before- or use them in a different way.
A challenge it was! I felt completely out of my comfort zone and got a little frustrated at times.
I usually use my Cricut and make traditional style folded cards. I usually use colors that I love like pink, green, and black, and I tend to over glitz sometimes because I love the bling!
I made a shutter fold card that is yellow (I've never attemped a shutter fold, and I very rarely use yellow- except for a background). All the paper is from the DCWV Lemon Flower Stack.
I used distressed ink and a distressing tool on the square paper (Never tried that before! Don't even know if I used the ink right!)
I also used the distressed ink to water-color the flower (It started out white).
I used a circle hat pin and free-handed the "hope shape". I put an EK Success clear round sticker over the word Hope to enhance it.
The stamps are from Pink by Design and the ribbon is from JoAnns (OK- I've used these before!)
And I HAD to use a little bling with the brad in the center of the flower.
I am entering this into a few challenges:
