We have a great challenge for you at Crafty Creations. It'll run for two weeks, ending March 30. Yes, a great challenge with a wonderful theme:
Chevrons or Stripes
And, if you look closely at my card, it has neither. Mmm hmm. I completely messed up the themes and so there are no chevrons or stripes on my card.
But, Beccy's Place is our sponsor and she sent me this absolutely beautiful digi to work with (Petite Fleur Set~click here). I fell in love with it ~ so I:
~ heat embossed the background paper and sponged on color;
~ fussy cut the flowers and leaves;
~ inked and colored all the pieces (there were many layers);
~ carefully added dimension to the flowers and leaves;
~ then strategically placed foam tape and glue for additional dimension to the entire image.
And, I was pretty happy with this card . . . until I realized there were no Chevrons or Stripes on it anywhere. So, I'm sorry, my Crafty Creations DT buddies, but this card will have to do. In fact, I'm not even going to write anymore . . . just enjoy the pictures. I've listed the items I used on this card at the bottom.
And you may want to stop by the Crafty Creations Challenges blog to see what my Design Teamies created ~ actually using chevrons and/or stripes. LOL
