Day 4 Part 2, Again
Today was the day for our 10-Minute Challenge. My first card, (see below, with the folded circles), created soon after 9 AM class, was a success, as far as the timing is concerned. I wasn't too excited about the card, however, so by 4:30 in the afternoon I decided to try another card.
This time I went for Marion Vagg's example where she gave a tutorial for "Colored Die Cuts." I figured that couldn't be too hard, so I added some extra steps. For one, I die cut the edge of the cardstock that is embossed with Stampin Up's Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder. I love that EF--it looks so elegant. The Die-namic Bracket Edge Die just arrived in today's mail, which was exciting, so I had to use it! To help direct the eye, I added a strip of yellow paper just above the curved edge..
The butterfly is colored with Copic YR04, YR07 and RV29. I did not have the same colors Marion used in her example, but they are close. I also used a Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star Glitter Pen and some small pearls. The sentiment is from Flower Friend stamp set from SSS. I think that's it...oh, yea! Did I make the 10-minute deadline? Did you notice how crooked the sentiment is? That's when the buzzer went off!
And here's how crooked everything else was by the time I got done!!!
Hope you like this afternoon's card. I am so glad you're here! Please leave a comment. Online Card Class Summer Card Camp 2 is awesome!
