This one was for the Makeshift Costume challenge. Which was to use scraps. And I so hate to admit just how many scraps I have!! LOL You know those ladies who just can't bear to cut into a new sheet of cardstock or dsp?? And they use up every little piece before they can cut into a new one??? Well...........I admire them sooooooooooo much!!!!! I have an "issue" with just grabbing a nice, new, fresh piece and cutting it to the dimension I need!! LOL Oh my you should see MY pile of scraps.........it's huge!!! As are many of the actual scraps!!!! My sister-in-law loves to come over and just cut up, punch out and cuttlebug some of my scraps for her stash!!! I'm sick, I tell ya!!!! :) And far toooooo addicted to Designer Papers!!! Anyway.......sorry I got off on a tangent.......LOL........I really wanted to try a weaving technique. I never have before, and so this is what I came up with. I used Bella Rose dp ( I LOVE IT) and wove a piece big enough for a 5" square card. Then accented with these butterflies from the Butterfly Beauty kit by Unity Stamps. You know how much I'm in LOVE with this kit????!!!!! TONS!!!!! LOL Of course I had to color and glitter them!!!
Allright then........seriously I have issues with this card!! It was for the Quick Costume Change challenge. Which was to use the Emerging Color Technique. Another brand new one for me!! And I sooooo love learning new things!!! The only problem is that I didn't use a dark enough ink to brayer over the top, so the color shows through more than just through the butterfly. Oh well! I did like how much easier this technique was than I first thought!!! So I'll try it again sometime. I used one of the butterflies from my Butterfly Beauty kit again!!!! Any surprise??? LOL Also the Hullabaloo stamp for the background. A very cool design I might add!!!
Now this is my favorite card of the evening!!!! I don't often say that because it's always hard to judge your own creations without seeing all the flaws!! I know there are flaws in this card too..........but this Dream Tree by Unity is so elegant, beautiful, stately, delicate.......that even on it's own it is just STUNNING!!! But I chose this image for the Inspired By Moulin Rouge challenge. Which was to pick one of the costumes and make a card using it as your inspiration. I chose one that was entitled Pink Diamonds. Okay, now I ***know*** none of you can possibly be surprised at THAT choice!!!! ROFL So this elegant tree just called to have pink diamonds adorning it!!! And I used one of the sentiments from the Simply Said kit. Such beautiful sentiments!!!
Well......I made some other VSN creations, but I'll share them in another post as this one is long enough already!!!! LOL Do try to play along as I know you'll be inspired by the fun Cabaret theme of the VSN challenges!!!
