Happy Monday my crafty friends!
How about that Superbowl!! We're not big sports fans here in this house. Soccer is about the only game we pay attention to...but the Superbowl is another story. Of course, it's not as fun when you're home alone with no friends to hoot and holler with, but we still enjoyed it.
This week at Digi Makeover we are challenging you to use the colors Red, Black, and White only on your creations! I love this color combination and had a blast putting together my card.
Of course, as you know, I've been attempting to make uniquer more creative cards lately. I've been playing around with the slider pop-up card design (and really enjoying it) but struggling to get it just right. But I decided to keep trying with my DT card this week :)
I used the Shaela Fairy image from Paper Makeup. She's a new digi in the store and I just love her!
Another new thing for me that I'm showing off with this card is that I actually used markers! Crazy!! (I learned that I need a lot more practice...but still :) )
I received a set of Spectrum Noir markers for Christmas and purchased another set myself so I could play around with them and see if I really liked them. It's going to take some time...I'm not very good at shading, and maybe that's because I don't have all the filler colors...I don't know. But using what I had, I think it turned out pretty good.
I embossed the scallop circle with my D'vine Swirls folder and layered that onto a die cut heart circle.
The edges of the pull tab are punched with my MS Doily Lace edge punch. I love how that added so much elegance to the whole card. The edges of the white paper are distressed with some black ink and I added stickles randomly around the patterned paper. (I also added stickles to her wings and sparkler...but that was after I took the pics :) )
I hope you will join us this week at Digi Makeover. Just remember to use a digi, and be sure to check out the rest of the makeup artists gorgeous creations!!
