Yes I am uploading a 2nd card tonight for the same 2 challenges that I used for the previous post. I had so much fun with the previous card that I had the supplies out and I had leftover double sided sticky coloured paper that I didn’t just want to throw into the bin. So this time around I decided that I would go closer to the sketch this time around and use stars in my background. My card ended up a little different to the sketch but I will tell why after I show you the results.
and here are the 2 challenges that inspired all of this creating tonight
As you see from my card and the sketch #276 by Chrissy; I did come close. But I will tell you now that the sentiment star is hiding a horrible horrible mess of both gold blobs and my attempts to fix said mess… more on this later. As I was going through my stash of paper stock I found out that I don’t have any Aqua … I was sure I had every colour but there you go! So I had to substitute a different blue for the Color Throwdown #497 combo … hope this was OK.
The cute Unicorn image is from the Stay Unique Photopolomyer Stamp Set by Uniquely Creative. It is such a cute set and is one of the add-on sets you can buy to give you more choices for your creations with the Stamp & Colour June Kit.
The horrible gold globs happened while I was making the background piece. I cut a piece of black paper and put it into my colour splatter cubby. Then I mixed together gold Perfect Pearls with some water and flicked this mixture onto the black paper with a paint brush. Well lets just say a HUGE glob went where I didn’t want it and I tried fixed it and I thought that I had got away with it. But it wasn’t until I was nearly finished that it stuck out that it wasn’t fixed so I almost threw the whole thing in the bin but I persevered and figured out a fix. I had to go a little off the sketch but I hope that it will be forgiven.
Thanks for stopping by to have a look at my card creation. Before you go though I would love to leave you with this thought:
