Have you spread your wings a little bit lately trying new techniques? One needs to do it, you know, just to keep growing. Otherwise our minds become stagnant and refuse to let in the good stuff in life. In part of my life I design samples for a wonderful company in northern Wisconsin called THE PAPER CUT. Sarah, the sweetest gal in the world, asked me to make her some samples of the Funky Accordion Card. Whoa Nellie! Accordion cards? Yeah, accordion cards.......not sure I can handle that task. But alas I came up with 3 beauties I just love.
In the other part of my life I spend mega hours designing cards for a few design teams, one of which is our own beloved OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGES. Our sponsor at OUTLAWZ this week is Aurora Wings and the challenge is to use texture on your project. So I chose the Peace Rose Digital Stamp (Aurora Wings) and proceeded to have some fun with my art. The texture is done with my Big Shot and my embossing folders and distressed a bit with distress inks and a finger dauber.
You can ask my husband how many hours I spent in 2 nites working on those roses! I love the Peace Rose. One year when my eldest daughter was still at home and showing items in our county fair, she won a blue ribbon with the peace rose she grew! And that hair - well that's another challenge for me. But I think I hit it right (for now).
Come on over to OUTLAWZ and have some fun this week! And check out Sarah at THE PAPER CUT and perhaps grab a beautiful digi like my peace rose above at AURORA WINGS.
I mentioned I had done 3 for Sarah - so here are the other 2.
Bye for now -have fun with your art!
