OLW113, TMS171 - Happy Holidays
I have spent the afternoon so far just tidying my craft room, finishing cards that were not quite there (usually adding an inside white panel where the cardbase is dark, or stamping my 'Ardyth' stamp on the back). While I was doing that, I came across this card I made earlier in the week, and promptly forgot about.
I made it for this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge, to use dark red, green and gold. I used an Impress poinsettia in Cherry Cobbler, gold beads for the centres, and Almost Artichoke for the Papertrey sentiment. I added depth to the petals by going over the centre-ends with a copic marker - it really does add something!
But, during the week, I also came across a new (to me) challenge called Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's obviously not that new, since it's at challenge 171, but the fun, simple sketch also inspired me while I was making this card.
Now I'm hoping to get back upstairs to think about some more horsey cards. FYI - I added a link to this morning's post, so that you can find Deadbeat Designs' online store if you want.
