Hi out there,
how are you all?
I managed to squeeze in a bit of creative time last week-end, which made me really happy.
I managed to finish two cards I had started during the week for Challenge up your Life. But I can't show you these yet.
The third card is a Birthday card I needed a for my friend's 4 year old daughter.
I had planned to do pink and glitter for her, because she has two older brothers, so she gets plenty of non-girly stuff... But when I started creating, my card somehow went in a totally different direction.
I often see those Polaroid cards, and I really like that idea, so I really wanted to make something like this for ages. I started out by picking two of my new Purple Onion Designs stamps, the large flower and the squirrel, stamped and water coloured them with my Inktense pencils.
While the images dried, I created my own Polaroid frame and the shaker element. Then I fuzzy cut the squirrel and picked the part of the scene I wanted to show.
After the shaker was all done and closed, I started thinking about the card base, and nothing seemed to make me very happy. So, I let myself be inspired by the "Less is more" texture challenge.
I applied white embossing paste through a stencil on a white card base. That was the point when I was really unsure if this card wasn't a bit too white for a little girl. But in the end I went with it, because of the shaker and the cute squirrel.
Have a great day
