This week on Craft Your Passion we were asked to use scraps. I didn’t really go all the way with this challenge. I mean, with scraps, the possibilities are really endless but in my card I only used two different papers and a piece of washi.
Then the doodling didn’t come out as I wanted. The extra bump after the letter “i” is there because I forgot what I was writing and just kept going. I also briefly thought about adding paint splatters which is totally something I should have done.
Only things I’m happy about this card are the papers and colours that I used. I definitely could have done a better job if I had put more thought on it during the making process. Oh well, it’s a lesson learned. Join this week’s challenge “Use Your Scraps” and you can win one of the fabulous prizes from Stitchy Bear and Robin’s Nest.
I looked at the picture and thought hey, it’s an autumn rainbow. From rainbow I got hippies and from autumn I got the colours. Here’s my Autumn Hippie-card:
See the text on the lighter paper? Flower generation, love…That’s hippies, my friend. I bought these papers at Amalia and they are all from the same set.
The shapes were fussy cut from a patterned paper, the big flower in the center originally had some journaling space and I wrote a greeting on it. It turned out ugly so I covered it with the same paper I used on the background. When I eventually use this card, I’ll just add a number or a greeting, depending on the recipient.
Hearts! And glitter! So girly! So pretty!
I just love these papers. I might have to go back and buy the rest of them. You know, for hoarding. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to take part in the challenge! There are prizes! As always!
October in US is a Breast Cancer Awareness Month so this week it’s pink week at Craft Your Passion. We got to choose from two different sets of digi stamps and I went with owls. Because. You know. They are owls. Since my background was very full on pink, I decided to leave my owl b&w, just adding blue eyes raised with foam dots.
Yes. I think the eyes are my favourite part. If you want to see more fab DT-cards, click HERE. Don’t forget to take part yourself as this week’s prizes include 5 Promarkers! I wouldn’t mind winning those…
