Well, I got down to making Mum her Mother's Day card tonight (LATE...UGH!)....Mum if you are reading my blog....avert your eyes....you can't look until Sunday (ok?).
Anyway...I decided I'd use Kristina's Colour Challenge Colours again...because, as I said last week, all that stuff was strewn all over my craft table anyway.
This is the card that I made:
I saw a card on Jayne Mercer's Blog recently that had a flower with multiple stems and I had to use the idea....although mine are a bit swirlier than Jayne's. Thanks Jayne!
Now, really quickly because my eyes are drooping out of my head and I'm yawning every 15 seconds...I have used:
- Brilliant Blue Cardstock
- Jersey Shore Double-Sided Designer Series Paper
- White Embroidery Thread
- Crafter's Toolkit
- 3/4 inch circle punch
- On Board Blossoms and Basics Chipboard
- Crystal effects
- White Gel Pen
If you check out the flower centre closely, this is what you will see:
Apparently this is what happens to Crystal Effects when you are impatient for it to dry so you whip out your Heat Tool and give it a blast to speed along the drying process! It looks like little shock waves rippling out from the centre of the circle. It still dried glassy though, so I thought it looked kinda cool. It sort of reminds me of a Lifesaver. I had punched the hole in the centre of the circle (using the Crop-a-dile of course ;-) thinking that I would put a brad of some sort in there.....but after I got the ripple effect in the Crystal Effects I thought I'd leave it as is.
And that is all there is to it!
