I have another card using a Ching Chou Kuik image today. The image is coloured with promarkers (thank goodness for the new nibs!) and I've resisted the temptation to give it a mat which is unusual for me, but I'm trying to take myself out of my comfort zone more often because I think it's great for creativity. The main bp is from the mottled stone collection and the brown one of from the embossed hearts collection. The orange piece has been on my stash since the year dot - It has a nice, very fine corrugation to it but I don't use orange very often so we have another step outside the old comfort zone! The third step is the distressing, something else that doesn't seem to come naturally to me - it does help to give the layers texture though and I do seem to be getting better at it. I don't have a 'proper' distressing tool but my thread cutter for embroidery silks seems to do a decent job although I probably won't be able use it for cutting anything else now...........
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
- Heart Song Inspirations - use the colour orange
- OLLCB - dies and punches
- Digital Tuesday - People (the yellow and brown dps are digital)
- Crafting for all seasons - Fall Colours
- Sweet Pea Stampers - Fall colours
- Passion for Promarkers - Sketch
- Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
Fortunately this card is destined for someone who loves bright colours!
