Two Cards for 2S4Y #44.
LUCK O' THE IRISH --
Well, I think I got in just under the wire. One of these days I will get things done earlier. However, I am early for the Color Throwdown challenge. I'm not completely satisfied with the Irish card. Now that I look at it I did forget one element for the sketch on the bottom. I was going for something a little quick and started out by making the colors of the Irish flag. I also wanted to use the shamrock stamp alongside my sentiment, but it was too large and since I was running out of time, I chose shamrock gems instead. Still, it was a fun card to make.
Stamps: Shamrock stamp and sentiment.
Paper: green, orange and white cardstock.
Extras: Nestability die, green brads, shamrock gems, green and orange ribbon.
The Love card I like a litlte better. It is for the bonus challenge. Although now you cannot see the image on the patterned paper as well, the heart columns I made with a heart punch and gell pen mirror the image of the pink hearts hanging off of green vines. The color scheme is from Color Throwdown 76. Again, I had to improvise a little on the colors and get them as close as I could.
Paper: Patterned paper, olive, pale yellow and raspberry cardstock.
Extras: heart punch, olive gel pen; Sizzis skittle dee doo alpha die, rapsberry patterned ribbon.
Well, it's late and I'm up as usual, but not for much longer.
