Hey, I'm back - last week I was just too tired to even think about making ANYTHING. This week I'm cheating a little because I've covered 2 challenges with the one card- Kristina's Colour Inspiration Challenge and 2Sketches4You sketch challenge. (Well, I've missed the cut off for Kristina's but I'm still in time for 2S4U)
Here's Kristina's inspiration piece - the colours are Rose Red, Regal Rose, Sage Shadow & Whisper White. You can see Kazan's sketch here.
This is what I came up with
As soon as I saw Kazan's sketch I knew I wanted to used Always - from the New Spring Mini which starts on August 1, 2008 and when I saw the colours in Kristina's challenge, I had the idea of stamping the bird with Versamark on white then embossing with clear EP and then colouring the details using my markers. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I was really happy with the result. The rest is pretty self explanatory - no complicated techniques here!
Thanks for looking - hope you're all having a great weekend and keeping warm (the nights have been particulary cold here in Melbourne this week)
Catch you next week!
PS: I have received my copies of the BEAUTIFUL new Spring Mini - if you would like a FREE copy, leave a comment or send me an email with your address deets & I'll get one out to you!
