Today I finished a card for a couple of challenges. The card is in a distress/vintage style that isn't really "me". I'm trying to develop that style though and I think I'm getting better and better at it.
I used a sketch from the Besic Grey challenges. Did you know they are back again? They disappeared for a while and now they're back - better than ever! This is the sketch they have for challenge number 1. I thought it was wonderful so I used it. But Imust admit I had a hard time cramming every detail in there, lol. I couldn't make the tag with the text so I had to make it a little plaque instead.
In order to join the challenge you need to use at least one item from Basic Grey. I used patterned papers that I had bought on a sale. They are called Wassail and I love that vintage look!
I decided to join just magnolia's challenge this week too by using a Magnolia image and the theme for this week: "friendship". I thought the papers and image worked beautifully together as did the text: "If friends were flowers I would pick you".
Finally lili of the valley have a challenge where you need to use charms. I went through my jewelry stash and although I mostly work with silver coloured metal I did find some bronze/golden chain and the butterfly. The butterfly hangs loose on the chain but I'm thinking about glueing it to the middle of the ribbon. Can't decide :)
Promarkers used: coral, ruby, saffron, marsh green, pastel yellow and primrose. Hair coloured with an old pantone pen, similar to promarker's sandstone. The outer flower is a white one coloured with marsh green to match the image exactly. I also used my square nesties and CB embossing folder.
