first let me show you the sketch i used, it's kazan's 52 from 2S4y...i ♥LOVE♥ it...it's already in my "print & save" notebook!
pursuant to my "turquoisey blue" obsession, i was excited to see this week's color challenge at design dollies:
ok, in all honesty, i was only 2/3 excited about this color challenge: i love the black and the turquoise...the yellow...hmmmmm...i wasn't as sure about that one. i tend to be a bit yellow & orange challenged, actually. but being the brave and intrepid card-maker i am, of course i did what brave and intrepid card-makers always do in these situations: i cheated! :) ok, sorta-- i used gold instead of a true yellow. i didn't really even use MUCH gold, for that matter, but i think it still counts. i hope it still counts. (hey leah! does it still count??!)
i used an extra digital collage i had printed out on inkjet transparency when i made this butterfly card for the "font throwdown" a few months ago; here i layered it over a bit of vintage french dictionary. i used an eiffel tower sticker from my stash, some brand new dymo-inspired alphabet stickers, leftover glimmer-mist-dyed lace from my mom's mother's day present, some layers of wonky hand-cut scallops, the aforementioned bloomers, and a few other bits and bobs that were laying about. and that's about it really, but after a week of not very much crafting, to me this represents a REALLY GOOD friday night! :)
