Hello! I'm entering a few card challenges today - a good way to keep that creativity flowing.
The first is a new card challenge blog started by two OWH bloggers - Words 2 Scrap by. The challenges take their inspiration from words and this month's challenge is to use a lyric from "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music. I listened to the song and chose the words - "wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings" and imagined geese flying against a setting sun.
Here's my card:
First I made a circle mask for the moon and put it onto the watercolor paper. Then, I used Distress Inks to create the sunset background, which I misted over with Perfect Pearls. The geese are from the Silhouette store (#5442), stamp from Technique Tuesday.
This challenge pushed me to try a new technique and that's always a good thing.
The second challenge is the monthly Our Daily Bread Designs challenge at OWH , which is stripes. Here's my card:
I used three Memento Dew Drop inks and made a simple design, pulling the colors from the striped paper. I used OWH sketch #201 for this card design:
I'm still looking over the many cards posted in the OWH Top 13 of 2013 blog hop and writing down cards that I want to CASE. There's so much inspiration in the blog world.
Hope you have a chance to enter these challenges in between the football playoffs, that is!
