It meant missing the start of the final Canada/US hockey game (thank goodness for radio) but yesterday I took a great card class at Clipper Street. The theme was "purple" and each card was quite different in its design. I intentionally (and unintentionally) changed each card a bit so any deficiencies are probably my doing and not Jo's (she was the instructor and designer). I am entering some of these cards into challenges where they meet the requirements - it will be noted right after the description.
- Crazy 4 Challenges - use 3 different textures (at least 4 or 5 textures,depending on how you rate embellishments - smooth PP, rough PP, glittered chipboard, glittered flower, smooth button)
Card #3 is my favorite because of its simple lines and glittery detail. I coloured the stamped image with my Copics and then glittered over it with translucent blue highlight. I love how the glitter takes a somewhat non-descript image and makes it very appealing and fun.
- C.R.A.F.T. challenge - ribbon and sparkle (you can't ask for more sparkle and aside from the ribbon bow on the top button, I also think the border punched purple swiss dot paper has the feel of lace or ribbon to it too)
Card #4 is a simple little side fold card. I like the offset scalloped circles though. Jo's design had an embossed sentiment in the centre but I decided to go with a few more circles topped with a flower instead. I thought I could add the sentiment on the far right side of the inside once I decide what to use the card for.
