Happy Easter! Hope you're all having a wonderufl Easter Sunday! For me I confess that I have acquired a nice pile of scrummy chocolate eggs and I'm yet even nibble on one (I'm so impressed at my willpower! LOL) I know that I'll find it nearly impossible to put half an eaten chocolate egg down so best to wait until I can share with someone ;D
No Easter card from me today though, in fact something entirely different!
This card was for the fourth challenge issued by the Papertrey Peeps group. We had to pick one of Nichole Heady's creations from the previous two releases and CASE it with the added catch of NOT using a stamp set released from that month! Why oh why did they have to release my two fave sets of the moment (Butterfly Dreams and Studio Style) in the same month?! I found it so difficult to tear myself away from them but I was really drawn to the simplicity of this card and desperately wanted to CASE it!
Hmm...now I look at Nichole's card I really do need to add some ink around the edges of my Kraft panel! It's the little touches that your eye takes in but hardly notices that totally make her cards work. I'm off to take my little card for some more inking this afternoon LOL!
(OK, so after adding a touch of ink to the edges here's the final card!)
All PTI Supplies Unless Stated
Stamps: Friends 'til the End
Ink: Versamark (Antique Linen Distress Ink after re-touch!)
Cardstock: White Blank from stash/Kraft
Accessories: Detail White Embossing Powder/Promarkers/White Gel Pen
Friends 'til the End is just one of those sets that I love to play with *sigh*. I love the sentiments, the font and the endless opportunities for a good colouring session or paper piecing session with those flowers and leaves!
Now I'm starting to learn a little more about photography. I'm completely inspired by the way I see creations photographed. Seeing as my Mini Eggs props keep disappearing, I'm pretty sure that I'll always have a stash of buttons on hand ;D
Becky Oehlers has posted some fab tips about photography, I recommend you take a peek here! I know my photography has a long way to go but nevertheless I'm enjoying the learning curve!
Catch ya later!
