Second post here today. I am a day late posting my high hopes weekly challenge card. I am so thankful that we have had gorgeous weather here the past few days but unfortunately the change in the weather has played havoc on my sinuses. I have had a very bad sinus headache for days now and nothing is relieving it. Even my ears are hurting so I hope that it will get better soon. So anyway, I have had the image colored for a few days but just could not put it into a card. I tried yesterday but I was sewing the image onto my matte and screwed it up. I was able to salvage the image by distressing the edges which I did not originally plan on doing but at least I was able to still use it. I decided that it was best to set it aside and come back to it today. It was a fairly good idea because I checked the challenge today on SCS and found that I could indeed use my finished image and combine the 2 challenges. So here is my finished card:
I have to be honest, I am not sure if I am completely happy with how this turned out. I am wondering if this image is too big for the ribbon frame technique. You can see how to make the ribbon frame HERE. I do like how the coloring came out though. I colored the image with copics and used some stickles to accent the flowers. So, here is a closer look at that for you:
stamps- high hopes wishing well and sentiment
CS- white, wild wasabi, pink pirouette
accessories- pink taffeta ribbon, pink rhinestones, copics (RV10, RV11, E31, E33, E37, W1, W3, G21, G94, BG10, E50, E00, R20)
So, this week the challenge was brought to us by our wonderful guest diva Diana and she asked us not to use patterned paper on our card. This has become a challenge for me as I frequently use dp especially on colored images because I choose my colors from my papers usually. Please check out the challenge details, prize info, and the rest of the divas' amazing samples on the high hopes blog.
Hope your day is going well!
