Some Odd Girl is having a Facebook Fun Day today and I just happened by this morning after it pulled up in my newsfeed so I thought I would play along with at least one of the challenges! The first challenge of the day is to create your own embellishments (using one of the ideas from a video tutorial found at the SOG blog)
I used Beach Mae for my card today. I've also colored her in some bright colors, which I'll share another day, but I thought she would be fun in the pink and brown tones I pulled from the Lost and Found Blush Collection by My Mind's Eye. She was colored with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to match the papers. Here's a closer peek at her. I just love the big wide eyes on Kristi's stamps!
I chose to make my own flowers following the tutorial. (See link above) I also included part of another DIY challenge by misting them first. For each flower I started with a square of ME paper that I misted with Biscotti Perfect Pearls and dried. I then cut it into a circular shape then cut into the center in a spiral cut. The flower is then rolled up and I used Beacon Fabri-Tac adhesive to hold it together. The gems n the center are also from MME.
I also misted my BG paper, first using a Glimmer Mist stencil and Melted Chocolate Dylusions ink spray. I then sprayed the whole thing with Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist and heated it.
My pink panel and Mae are both popped up using Crafty Foam Tape from 3L so here's a side view to help you see the dimension! My ribbon is from May ARts, and I added Stampendous! Multi Crystal UF glitter to Mae's bathing suit and shoes with a Quickie glue pen by sakura.
