Today has been a fabulous (while incredibly busy) day! I have finally managed to get my new blog design that I have been working on all month completely implemented and set up! It feels so good!!
It did have a few hiccups...and probably still does. But nothing major :)
I have to say that without the help of my dear husband, I would not have been able to do this. He helped me work through so much HTML code, viewing and fixing and going cross-eyed looking at all the funny little symbols. But now, I just might be better at HTML coding than him :) (sshhh...don't tell him)
Look around and let me know what you think!! I always love reading your comments, and appreciate them so much! I'm hoping with this new makeover to start trying new things here on my blog. Not just posting cards, but food and favorites and other fun stuff like that. Of course, today it's still just a card :)
I'm also happy to say that my Etsy shop is finally back open! Not much is listed right now because my camera was throwing a fit today...but more will be coming, and I'm in love with everything I have to list! I honestly think it's my best group of cards yet!
Anyhow, onto today's card!!
I've been playing around with images from this fabulous company-Some Odd Girl! Just love them! They are so easy to color, whether it's simple coloring or all out shading with depth and such (which I don't know how to do...but have seen lots of other people rock it!).
I only have a few of their images, and am dying to get more! But decided for now to play with what I have.
Forest Friend Fairy. And! I used my markers again!! The more I practice, the more comfortable they feel. But of course, I only have pinks and browns...so I'm kind of limited on what they can be used on. But they were perfect for this card :)
I used these fun papers again because I just love them! They are so wild and bright. And they sparkle! Now who wouldn't love that?
Some Odd Girl has a sketch challenge going on right now, so I decided to try and play along. Here's the sketch:
I used my Silhouette and cut out the bright pink scallop circle behind my image. Then used my scallop scissors on the light pink circle, which was then embossed with my Swiss Dots folder.
I pulled a few of my handmade roses out of my stash and colored in the centers with some of my copics. Once everything was put together, I spritzed the roses with some shimmer mist so they also had a sparkle to them :)
Love the way this card turned out! The fun and crazy papers get mellowed out just a bit with the soft colors in the image and the elegant lace. So girly and sweet :)
Thanks for stopping by! I love having you visit :)
