Today is Friday, and that means it is the day for me to share some of my cards from this week with you. I hope you have had time to read this week's posts. The topics were about Loneliness, and feeling alone--NEVER AGAIN! And, on how to have the peace that you can only find in the Lord.
I made this card for Al, Michele G.'s Dad's 75th Birthday. It is our current challenge. I'm not included of course, I just wanted to share this card with you.
I used SU! White card stock. I put some through my Cuttle Bug, and created swirls with birds. As you may remember, all of my cards are size A2 unless stated. I took a piece of SU! White card stock, and stamped this image on it with VersaFine Onyx Black. Then I was in a quandary. I couldn't decide whether to paint it, or use my colored pencils on it.
I ended up using something I bought almost a year ago. I used my SU! Watercolor Crayons. They were so easy to use. I used my finger to blend colors, and extend them. I like how it came out! I hope he does!
I love this image. It reminds me of all that is good. The background was put through a Cuttle Bug, and the top piece was given to me with some other papers! I believe it is Mulberry paper, and it has little stars embossed on it! Just like his jammies! I believe I used water color pencils with no water on this. My son has red hair, it has toned down a lot, but this isn't far off from the beginning!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of my cards! I hope you have made Al's Birthday Card for the Challenge by now..and you are ready to stick it in the mail. The deadline is November 15th!
