I neglected my to-do lists today and made a card for the Kenny K challenge of no squares. This was so hard for me because I really like the look of square cards, period. Rectangle, okay. Circles, scalloped circles, ovals, etc, uh-uh, nope. So, I really struggled to get my entry in, but I finally settled on this shape and now I kinda like it! The image is "Fun Faerie" colored with Copics- purples, pinks and aquas.
I used Prima Nature Garden papers which I distressed and flowers from Prima and WOC. I tore the paper at the bottom to try and get the look of the flowers coming out of where I tore it. My watermark kinda covers it :( I used glitter glue on the wings and flowers to give it some fairy-ish magic. I used my Silhouette again for the leaves and the tag. I added distress inks to the edges of the tag, an eyelet and some seam binding that I colored with spun sugar and a blue-ish color (the name escapes me). I colored the base papers with Copics as well as the leaves. I wanted a soft aqua, but it blended too much with the papers and I only have two BG Copics to choose from: a light one and BG15?. I guess my card now works for the Color Me Creative Challenge of Bright colors!!
The day is a little overcast, so I had a hard time getting a picture with which I was happy. Oh, well. A little photo shop helps!
