At DICC each fortnight we are given an itinerary of items that we may choose from and have to pick at least 3 for our project. Sharon was our winner 2 challenges ago so she got to set the itinerary. Here's what she came up with:
Not a Card!
Black & White
Unusual Sentiment (ie. not “Happy Birthday” or “Best Wishes” etc).
You have the next 2 weeks to join us! To see more of what the DT created head over to the DICC blog. And be sure to stop at everyone's blogs and leave us all some love :)
For my card I ended up using a fancy fold, black & white, and an unusual sentiment.
This is Lil Allsorts Fairy Kira from Tickled Pink Stamps in Australia. (Don't worry, they come in rubber AND digi) Isn't she gorgeous? The TPS challenge this week is to create a card with Black & white and one color so I chose green. You can see the copics that I used at the bottom of the post.
After she was colored I added some Lime Twist Glimmer Mist to her wings and flowers in her hair directly with a paint brush. Its a bit hard to see from the photo, but you get a glimmer of it, LOL.
I used a Joy Fold for my fancy fold...it just seemed to be right for the card. Here are shots of the card open from 2 angles. The top panel tucks under the upper flowers to stay closed. (The gems are half on and half off when open but reassemble in a complete swirl when the card is closed )
