World Cardmaking Day Preview
Saturday is a day that celebrates the card maker in all of us. There are many sites that are blog challenging, check them out!
This card is made for 2 sites. The sketch challenge came from Twisted Thursday and the stamps are Sherrod Studio- Harvest Blessings. I have struggled with images that require coloring in, but broke down and bought a cheaper version of Copic Markers, called NeoPiko. I like them. But, still learning the coloring in, blending in and erasing too much color. I like how this card turned out. I stamped in Walnut Distressing Ink (Tim Holtz) and colored away. I wanted the turkey to stand out more, he has more color. The pilgrims, used grey to color in the aprons, but the rest of the clothes I left plain. Too much color becomes too busy. The twine is part of the S2G twist (use raffia or twine on your card).
I am very excited about tomorrow! I think I am going to find alot of inspiration and put my creative juices to work!
