Hey there. Remember two posts ago when I shared a card that had the angled front on the card? Seems like I had all these angled pieces of DSP left over when classes were finished last week. I suppose I could have thrown them all away, but I just had to play with some to see what could be made from them. Here's the result...
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, and Watercolor Paper with Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (ret)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral with Crumb Cake marker
Accessories: AquaPainter, Decorative Label Punch, Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, and Dimensionals
After trying several other options for the focal point on the card, I settled back on the stamped and watercolored images that were used on the previous cards I'd made for classes. Why mess with a good thing, right? Besides, nothing else I tried looked right. So this is the card I gave my daughter for Mother's Day. If you notice, only part of the image for the sentiment was used. I omitted the crown above daughter because it really didn't fit. Anyway, I was quite pleased with the overall look when I finished and wrote her a little note letting her know how proud I was of her and what a great mother she is to her two little boys. What more could a mother ask of her daughter than to be a good mother herself?
Ok, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping in to see what's new. Maybe I need to get cracking on using some new products and seeing what can be created with them? What a novel idea! Guess that's next on my list to do... Sharon
