Okay, the weekend is over now and its time for me to dive into some creativity. So, once more I ended up making two completely different card. I will play each of these cards for different challenges :)
Now to my first card... the challenge at CAS-ual Friday's #111 says use buttons and I wanted to represent buttons as a part of my idea and not just as an embellishment. I got this idea of showing someone playing with button... a "CAT" was perfect for this as it loves to play with yarn balls and I created the same look on my card. To make this card I decided to use the FUN & CUTE Sketch Challenge at House of Cards this month and the colors at Dynamic Duos #64 . So, here's my card...
On my card base I scored horizontal lines using my Martha Stewart's scoring board to match the sketch, the focal image i.e. the cat was hand drawn, colored (with pencil colors) and fuzzy cut. The sentiment was printed using MS-word. I chose the buttons to match up the colors at Dynamic Duos :) All the elements were stuck using foam and glue dots. The buttons were additionally linked by Black embroidery thread (purchased from Walmart) and finally I added Glossy accents (from Ranger) on the eyes of the cat :)
The challenges for my first card are -
Now my second card :) I decided to go floral in this one and use some of my stamps. I was inspired by the colors at CAS Colors & Sketches #36 to create this card and since its a one layer card, I will play it for Lawnscaping challenge #63. So here's my card
To create this I did some masking on my card base to create the background grey. I then stamped the flowers (using Scrappy Cat - Sunny days stamps) and leaves (from Scrappy Cat - Garden collection wood stamp), the floral stems are hand drawn. the flowers were colored using a Sharpie Marker and glitter was added. Sentiment (from My mind's eye - the sweetest things) was stamped. Finally few drops of glossy accents was added. I purchased the Glossy accent yesterday and was excited to use it, so much so that I used it in both the cards :D
The challenges for my second are -
