Just a quick share tonight-a last minute entry for the Card Patterns #75 Sketch Challenge. For this card, I used DeNami's Scarecrow from the new releases. Isn't he just too cute?
I am also entering this in the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #14. The challenge there has two parts: 1) use a color you don't normally use, and 2) use a technique that you haven't used for a while. The color that I chose to use was yellow-I never use yellow! It was only after choosing the yellow cardstock that I decided what the theme of my card would be. The technique that I haven't used for a while was to use the negative part of a punch. I actually used the negative of the pumpkin punch to dry emboss the orange border. I then shaded the pumpkins with orange and brown colored pencils to make them show up a bit more.
Another technique that I tried on this card was to make a watermark background using Versamark ink and DeNami's new Polka Dot Background. Because the cardstock was slightly coated, it didn't absorb the ink much. I wanted to see the polka dots a little more, so I shaded each polka dot slightly with a colored pencil. Not too carefully-I wanted it to look a little distressed.
And last but not least, it fits in with the color scheme for Color Throwdown #104. although my cardstocks were from Momenta, they are similar to the Color Throwdown colors of Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.
Thanks for stopping by again today-three posts in one day is a record for me! I just have so many projects accumulating and I need to share them, lol!
