I've been creating, in between uni readings, and assignments... One of the cards I had to make this week, was for my Nan's birthday, which is next Monday... She's tough to make cards for, generally, as she's not big into florals, or typical nanna colours etc... So, I had to think a little outside the box for this one -
I started by going through my paper stash, to look for my Nan's favourite colour, teal... I came up with this script pattern from Teresa Collins, and paired it with some old My Minds Eye, and a piece of more current My Minds Eye (one of their journaling/Project Life boxes). I then went through my digital stamp files, and thought this one by From the Heart would be usable, as my Nan actually really likes birds... I printed it on to Vanilla card stock, and then coloured it up with my Spectrum Noir Markers.The sentiment is made up of two different stamps, one from Some Odd Girl, the other from Kraftin' Kimmie. I trimmed the image panel down, and popped it on to the journaling card. I built up the rest of my card, using Kraft card stock (behind the spotted paper, as a border), Kraft coloured ribbon and an aqua medium resin rose. I also added a trio of rhinestones, and a die cut doily shape (from Vellum) behine the image panel...
