This week's Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home http://www.operationwritehome.org/index.html is "Get Creative with Ribbon." Here's my card:
I've been practicing with my Bow-Easy the last couple of days. The directions that came with it weren't all that helpful, so I looked up a tutorial on youtube. I love youtube! You can find so many helpful videos on so many crafty things. The stamp is from DeNami and I colored with with Copics. I adore their little chickies. The flower and leave have Crystal Effects on them that don't show up in the picture. I'm thinking it still needs a little more. I'm going to try adding my "hey chickie" sentiment below the bow. Hubby said it should go in the upper right corner. I explained to him about focal points and how that distracts from the real focal point of the card. He just kind of rolled his eyes lol.
This also goes with last week's Throwdown, which I thought was really this week's about using dots, or was it polka dots. Don't you hate it when you get behind?
Here's another card I did this past weekend while hanging out with my STD's:
All of the stamps are DeNami. I colored it with Copics used some Crystal Effects on the plane to make it pop. It needed something to make it shine a little more. There are 16 of these headed over to Sandy in a couple of weeks for OWH.
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
