it's that time again, darlings...by which i mean...CAARDVARKS' challenge time, of course! this challenge was devised by our "lift it" micro-challenge winner, lesley langdon who is now also a CAARDVARKS' design team member! lesley challenged us to create cards using one of her favorite elements (and mine!): chipboard!
my card was one of those ones that just popped into my head fully formed, down to exactly which chipboard alphas i was going to use for which words! dontcha just LOVE IT when that happens?! (ok, well, i had actually intended to use basic grey monograms for *all* the letters of "cake"...but it was very cramped...so i swapped out a, k & e for the smaller chip chatters.) the awesome dcwv 8" "rock star" stack was a total impulse buy at michael's--i had NO IDEA what i'd use it for--but with each sheet covered in metallic swirls & skulls & guitars, i had to have it! as it turns out, i've already used it 3 or 4 times, including this silly "rock & roll" birthday card for a pal o'mine who just happens to be a dj, thank you very much!
(chipboard alphas: mambi (glitter), basic grey, chip chatter, heidi swapp; dcwv patterned paper; plus: acryllic paint, glitter nail polish, jewelcraft gems, colorbox ink)
