2 Cards 2day 4 a sketch challenge at Caardvarks
My friend and Cuttlebug Challenge DT sister, Heidi, designed a sketch for the current Caardvarks' Sketchfest challenge.
This is the first Halloween card I have made this season! I used a glittery rub-on I purchased after Halloween last year at Michael's when they were on clearance. The papers are K&Co. The border punch is Martha Stewart (I finally bought this particular punch last month.) The sentiment, "Things have not been the same since that house fell on my sister" is computer generated.
My second card is an image sent to me by blog friend, Chris Dark. I used BasicGrey June Bug papers. I colored Tilda from top to bottom. I was really happy with her top and frock until I got to her stockings. The stamped pattern was different than her sleeves, and using the red and yellow didn't look right. So I added the blue...eek! This is definitely a "less is more" situation. I decided to put the plaid BG paper on the bottom half of the card hoping to make those awful stockings less noticeable. Today I was blog surfing and saw the same Tilda on Martine's card. She colored the sleeves and stockings in one color. Yep, that's what I should have done. Oh well :)
