Now that my card making journey has lasted a little over a week, I feel that it’s time to take this thing to another level. Or should I say another dimension. The THIRD- dimension! Wow. I’m so clever.
I just spent nearly two hours making a card. Adding layers takes time, especially when chosen motif is a flower and all those pesky petals had to be cut separately. If you want to make one yourself, here’s the how-to:
Stamp different kind of flowers on white cardstock with black ink.
Colour some of them. Or every single one, if you fancy a colourful bouquet.
Cut the flowers and try to preserve the black outline.
I’m assuming that you have some kind of cardbase already at hand so the next step is to stamp few flowers here and there on it.
Draw flower stems (I did this after I’d done attaching flowers and it wasn’t a good decision)
Now arrange the cut flowers as you wish. When you’re happy with the look of things, use glue and foam dots to attach flowers on the card. This way you get the layered look.
Make a bow out of whatever ribbon you have and use tacky glue to attach it.
This card was a hard one to do. The challenge has a colour palette AND a sketch. I tried to follow Tim Gunn’s advice and make it work but I’m not so sure I’ve succeeded. Oh well, a lesson learned I suppose. The papers are from Amalia- shop and by Sassafras, MME and Daisy D. The pleated paper is from an old book.
For the P*skarteluhaaste- challenge #97. The theme is “Main focus on text”. My inspiration for this card came from Helsinki Juhlaviikot- brochure where I found tons of those black and white doodle illustrations. Story behind the text is: This way a shy art school student would ask another shy art school to go steady.
The font is from dafont.com and is called Pijamas.
Now it is confirmed. I’m genetically built to become addicted on things. First it was Abba when I was a baby. Then became candy and other sugars. At some point it was dancing. I’m still fond of hoarding vintage fabrics and other thrift store finds and I’ve barely begun my journey into ATC- world yet I’ve managed to find something new to obsess on.
I’ve participated on two Finnish ones now and I must say it’s nice when someone else gives you “orders”. This is an excellent way to force oneself to do something by the rules and yet make it have your own personality in it. When do we get the addiction part? Well, first of all I’ve found about 20 challenge blogs which I have organized in a separate Bookmark- folder. And secondly, here’s the third card I’ve made specifically for a challenge. This one is for Sketchy Colors.
