Emo birthday card and OSAAT reminder
I made this card for a few challenges, but now it's finished I don't think I like it :( It was going to be for my sister-in-law, who likes emo stuff and has a birthday coming up in a few weeks. Maybe it will have grown on me by then :P
The image is a freebie from Stamp Happens, she's called Maddie and she's fab, lol, I just don't think I've done her justice.
The challenges I was following are:
The Sherrod Studio Tuesday Throwdown challenge is distressing. As well as the obvious piece behind Maddie, I also gently distressed the green chequerboard pattern as well, but I'm not sure if you can see that.
The Papertake Weekly challenge is "Check this out" and you have to use a checked pattern somewhere, and I made my background to match.
The Tellen Place blog is having a birthday-themed challenge
The Easy Breezy Kewl Colour Challenge is to use the colours Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Whisper White. I actually subbed a soft cream shade for the white, hope that's ok :)
The Character Cafe is a recipe challenge, and you have to use 1 digital image, 3 pieces of paper and 5 embellishments. The embellishments are 1 ribbon, 3 brads, and one gem in her hair. The pieces of paper I may have not done properly, I was counting the background piece os distressed card behind the image as one piece, the brown pattern as 1 piece and the green checked background as one piece. It wasn't until I was putting it together that I realised that I hadn't counted the sentiment piece, and then I realised that most people don't include the image piece either. LOL, all the boundaries get blurred a little when you print everything from your pc. So, I guess this card could count as having 2, 3 or 4 pieces of paper, depending on how you count :P
I followed the current sketch over at Sketch Saturday.
And the KL Stampin' Scrappin' blog is having a Go Green challenge, where you have to use an item that a non-crafter may have thrown away. My ribbon came from a piece that was tied around a pair of pyjamas I received as a Christmas gift.
And just a quick reminder, there's still a week to go to enter our very first challenge over at the One Stitch At A Time blog (OSAAT) there's some fab candy up for grabs, pop along to the blog to see all the details :D
Thanks for looking, it's all snow again here now, hope it's better weather wherever you are :)
