I am popping in with a little card for the Fusion challenge today...talk about last minute hey?!! That's just how I roll ;)
Once again, I decided to go with just the sketch. Don't get me wrong, the colours and the flowers from the inspiration image were wonderful, but there was no way I was going to be able to make them look anything other than an experiment in achieving the ugliest recycling paper! I am aware of my limitations and sometimes it does just as well to stick within them as it to push them :)
Here is the fab Fusion sketch and image for this/last week...
...and here is my card...
This card is another one that is destined for my Mother's address. Her friend is moving at the end of the month and she asked if I could make a card for her. Now, I am aware that there is no mention of 'new home' or even an image of a house anywhere on this card, but I think it is a cause for felicitations. Her friend has been trying to sell her house for over a year and it has finally happened! Too tenuous? I don't know - I'll send it to Mother and see what she says...I still have plenty of time to make another one when she says that this one won't do! ;)
I had a bit of fun with this card...you see those outer rings? They have been heat embossed with glow in the dark embossing powder! Te he! The inner circles have been embossed with clear gloss embossing powder. I thought they looked like little planets and that it might be fun if a card on someone's mantel piece was to glow in the evening! (I think this cold has gone to my head a little more than I first thought!) I did try to take a photograph of it 'glowing' to no avail...I was not impressed. Danielle Daws made this card and she seemed to be able to capture the 'glowing'...my photo's just came out black :( I'd love to blame the camera, but only a bad craftsman blames his tools. You can see in Danielle's photo what it look like in the dark though :)
ETA: Lyndal kindly pointed out that this card would also qualify for the challenge currently on over at Catered Crop so I'm popping it in there as well! Thanks girl! :)
Thanks, as always, for stopping by...your time and comments mean a lot to me ;)
