I really needed a break from what I was working on earlier today and I had another LOTV image colored from the other day, so I decided to assemble a card with it. Shocking huh? Have image...make card! I remembered seeing a sketch that I liked on the Wild Orchid Challenges blog, so that's the route I took. I'm going to enter the card into some other challenges too and I'll give a list below. I think I'm going a bit crazy on the 'challenges' thing, but I'm really enjoying it :-)
Wild Orchid Challenges - sketch
LOTV - new beginnings
Stamp Something - glitter
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Fab'n' Funky Challenges - anything goes
Here's my card...
This sweet image is Lili of the Valley's 'On the Garden Wall'. Doesn't it make you remember the first boy you liked when you were a little girl? As mentioned, the layout follows the Wild Orchid Challenges sketch and it was a ton of fun to work with. The dp's are from a brand new 6x6 paper pad from BoBunny called 'Crush'. I actually used a whole bunch of new things on this card: Spellbinder's dies - Large Octagons and Classic Heart; the stamp itself was new; and a new MS punch for the black paper lace. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The adorable love potion bottle is by Making Memories and I filled it with some colored water - I'm hoping it won't somehow ruin my card if it leaks! Ahhh! The gems are from my stash and I colored them with a Copic marker. Finally, I added stardust Stickles for some 'bling'.
I colored this image with a combination of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger Distress Inks. I can't find the little note where I marked the details so I don't have them for you - so sorry!
That's it for today. I hope you're having a wonderful 2011 so far! It's the beginning, so it promises everything. Decide what you want and make it happen. And try to have fun in the process :-)
