The sun has not yet risen on this new week, but I have tons to accomplish before I leave town on Wednesday so I am up and at 'em. I'm glad I get to squeeze in one more entry for Moxie Fab World Gingham Challenge which ends today. Apparently, I am not the only one who is a little "giddy for gingham"! Check out the great cards submitted for the challenge and in Card Creations Volume 10 magazine.
AND CASE study # 93 has hosted guest designer, AGA during the month of May, and this is the last chance to case her beautiful style. So here's my card:
I was particularly inspired by the misted panel, banner detail, and large floral focal image of Aga's card:
Here is a close-up of my focal image, shined up a bit using a Sakura Glaze Pen. I used the same treatment on the sentiment banner.
I chose the landscape orientation because of the misting. I love the randomness that comes with using misting products such as Mister Huey in Pretty Pink, but I can't quite get the larger, spattered effect yet. I'll have to work on this technique some more. I bought a variety of Mister Huey colors and look forward to the practice. As you can see, the focal image as well as the misted panel are raised up on dimensional foam. The card base is made from Papertrey Ink Simply Chartreuse Pattern Paper Collection. I am a little nuts about the patterns as well as the available colors for these 8 1/2 X 11 pattern packages. I'm adding them to a lot of projects where I have not used patterns before. The chartreuse gingham is showing up a lot!
I guess it's time to get on with the rest of my day. I hope your week holds lots of crafting time. Leave a comment for me so that I
can visit you in return and see what you're up to as well!
