Hello! Today is a special day indeed as it's World Card Making Day! Yay! It's been a quiet day over here and I am working on some cards! Hero Arts is having a wonderful contest of making a card with your favorite colors! I am excited about this challenge as I have a lot of favorite colors, or favorite colors to use together. I am more of a favorite colors to use together. I love kraft, red and brown together. I also love pink, brown and orange. Another favorite is aqua blue with anything....
Over on the Hero Arts Flickr group a few of us thought it would be fun to have a hop showing your first card and a current card! So I went hunting through my computer to find one of my first cards. Just like you (probably) I didn't take a picture of my first card I ever made but this one is one of the first I did take a picture of! It's a card I remember making and loving. It was one of the thank you cards I made after Carter was born! I think I gave this to my OBGYN!
And here is the first card I ever uploaded to the Hero Arts Flickr group!
And here is a new card! I am also going to enter this into the Stamping Month at Two Peas challenge which is to use that stamp or supply you've been itching to use!
For me it's the musical background stamp, so happy that I got it! I love it because I love to sing!
I inked the nestie with wild honey ink than stamped the poppies on it, masking one of the poppies and hand drawing the rest of the stems. Than I colored the poppies with my prisma pencil, than I did a technique I that one of the HA ladies told me about at Scrapfest. I painted with water and perfect pearls and a brush over the poppies and let it dry. It's my first time trying it, it looks a bit messy but kinda cool too! So much shine! I stamped the musical background with vintage photo ink and distressed the edges! I also colored some pearls with a black sharpie and added them to the middle!
I hope you are having a great World Card making day! I am so thankful for this hobby! And I am so thankful for all the friends I have made online through this hobby! :>
