Live and Learn with a Squigglefly Challenge
Today I made a Spring card for the Squigglefly Challenge Blog, whose theme is SPRING!! I used a new March release called "Over An Egg" by artist Fawn Palmer. I love the image, but I tried a different coloring technique and I don't like it, so you'll probably see more than one card using this delightful Spring digi very soon.
I mistakenly put photo paper in my printer instead of cardstock, then thought I would still color and use it to try something different. But the alcohol inks don't blend on the glossy texture, and it can smudge unless you wait longer than I am used to for cutting and handling purposes.
But the overall design of the card still rocks it I think. I used a small piece of patterned paper for my inspiration, then added coordinating cardstock to frame the image and the pp. The trim, rosettes and parls are all Michael's clearance items that I snagged for 50 cents a bag. The black stitching is part of the pattern on the paper, and I punched the scallop design at the bottom with my CM punch system.
I think Robin's Egg Blue is my fave Spring color! What's yours?
Whatever it is, get over to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog for your chance to win free digi's, and there are so many new ones from which to choose!!! If you don't have any Squigglefly digi images, pick up some FREEBIES. Have fun, and happy crafting!
