Well, I'd admit, these cards are being posted with no time to spare! But what do you do? The friends these cards are going to read my blog. A girl has to keep a secret or two.The first is a card I CASED from Connie Babbert. She used the Good Friend set, which I failed to read until I did mine and figured out my mistake. I used the On Board pieces So Tweet which are slightly larger so I had a bit of trouble fitting everything on my card. On the positive side, it forced me to be creative and NOT do a straight CASE. Also, Connie used glitter on her birds, I used some glitter paint I had in my stash.
The second card came about because I was going to participate in a challenge here. But the goofball I can be, I forgot to use one of the colors required! So, here it is MINUS the Certainly Celery it was suppose to contain! I can't believe I waited so long to buy Branch Out! You know, even though it's not in the catalog it's not retired, just dormant right now. I would highly recommend it. It's one of those sets that makes you look a bonafide ARTISTE! You can't mess it up So, I added a little masking and the bats from the retired Halloween backgrounds and VOILE! Elegant Halloween card.
Just to add, I used my new Perfect Details Texturz Plate on the Pale Plum. For added dimension I used a brayer and inked the plate before sending it through the Big Shot. Love the texture.
No promises, but I am working on another Halloween post! Stay tuned!
