Use a black background
There's another new challenge up at the Tellen's Place Designs blog, and this week we'd like you to create something using a black background. That's right, no other restrictions at all. And since my last couple of cards have been relatively attitude-free, I thought I'd go all out with this one :P The fabulous image is called Creepish and you can find it, along with many others, in the Tellen's Place Etsy shop. And although I LOVE the darker images, Tellen's Place do have some more traditional digis as well, with sassy divas and cute holiday characters, so go have a look. You can win three images of your choice in this challenge, so what are you waiting for?
These are the other challenges I made it for:
Sketchy Colors - green and silver
Sketch Saturday - followed the sketch
Digital Tuesday - use something that you purchased but never used before. The sparkly black bg was created using a spiderweb stamp that I got in a set but have never really liked. The web is almost invisible, but it does show droplets of dew or ice hanging off it. And I realised I could make it into a non-webby bg by hiding the shape of the design and stamping it more than once.
Top Tip Tuesday - use an image you've coloured in. And my tip for this one is: Do what makes you happy! For whatever reason, cards like this make me ridiculously cheerful, even if they're not considered the norm ;)
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Crafty Purple Frog - sparkle
Stamping Vacation - build a sketch (I snipped the bit that was White 5 1/4 x 2 1/4, to create the bg with the mesh and the sentiment) ETA - darn it, I forgot about the scalloped strip, sorry ladies!
