Hello there, frozen bloggers! We're going to climb out of our deep freeze here tomorrow and I cannot wait! To keep me warm and busy, I cards for a few challenges.
I have fallen in love with Doodlepantry images since they offered a set for OWH and using my Silhouette to print and cut them makes it so easy to use them on cards. I had this cute elephant printed out and went through my scraps to create this quick card:
I stretched my green paper by piecing it behind Mr. Elephant and the dots around the edges are done using a Pearl Pen. This is my first time entering the Doodlepantry monthly challenge and I'm going to do this regularly - check it out over at their blog here . You get a featured digi image just for playing along, which is wonderful!
This week's throwdown challenge over at OWH is a chalkboard technique. I learned this last year, but this time, I used the Picket Fence Distress marker to make the shadow effect on my embossed images:
I went over some of the embossed swirls with Inktense pencils to add a little color. It was fun to revisit this technique. Great challenge idea!
Thanks for stopping by.
