Happy Monday All!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was quite fun although I was obviously tired because instead of cleaning off my lawn, I laid down and took a nice long nap! It was quite relaxing but the yardwork still needs to get done so I guess I'll be busy throughout this coming week *sigh*
Anywhooo, my post for today represents the Color Throwdown Challenge to use Kiwi Kiss, Not Quite Navy & Blush Blossom. When I looked at these colors together; I instantly knew I would be making a square card so I just started cutting and fiddling around. I want to give you a peek inside my crazy, creative mind as I try to create something....here goes:
I start with a Kiwi Kiss base and layer Not Quite Navy on top. The Rockabilly DSP is gorgeous so it's a no brainer to use it & for a bit of detail; I use the Eyelet Border punch before layering it on top of my NQN cs. There's 4 more layers (I'm a layer freak too) of NQN, Kiwi Kiss, Blush Blossom & Whisper White which I scallop again after stamping my flower from Soft Summer (yes, I got new rubbah on Friday!!!) I use my fave Butterfly die and emboss it with a texture plate--love those things too!! Even after embossing him, he still looks sort of plain so to jazz him up a bit, I gave him a pearl body, tail & head....looks much better now! I stamp my sentiment in NQN, punch it out with my large oval punch & layer it on top of the new scallop oval punch---it's fast becoming my fave too LOL!!! I sit back and look at my card for a bit....needs something I said; I add the Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon---needs just a bit more...there's white space that's freakin' me out so I punch 2 flowers, a circle & add a pearl. Dang...too plain so I give it a few swipes across the NQN & KK ink pads. LOVE IT so I attach it with some dimensionals. Ugh, the bottom corners are plain so I better add some brads....VOILA!! I'm finally happy with it but alas, it's another heavy card!!!
There, so now you know what I go through each & every time I attempt to make a card/project. Hope I didn't scare anyone away....I'm actually pretty normal outside of my creative process LOL!!
Well, I better get moving here....kiddos have to get ready for school! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
