Hello everyone, I had so much fun creating the last card that I decided that I would make a second one using the same sketch. And I also recycled the circle I had cut for the previous card and used it to make the frame on this card!
Just to remind everyone what CAS Game #123 from AAA Cards looks like here is the details
Again you can see that I created another A6 sized card. All of the products used on this card came from the Uniquely Creative Dreamy Card Kit plus Unicorn image came from the Stay Unique add on Stamp Set. The Unicorn I coloured in with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils.
As I mentioned above the circle frame was made with the leftover circle from my previous card. To make this frame I used 2 dies – firstly I used a scalloped die and once I cut this I left the die in place and used Pinked Rashberry Distress Ink with a sponged dauber this left a nice halo which I was pleased with. I wanted to used the outer edge from the die cut but because it was so thin I was afraid that I would rip it when using my 2nd colour of ink. To prevent this I flipped the inked die cut over and replaced the outer cut back around the scalloped piece which gave it a bit of stablity then I carefully sponged Fired Brick Distress Ink.
I flipped it back over and placed the pieces together and placed some tape on the back to keep it together. To make the frame for my image I used a smaller circle die to cut out the centre. I backed this piece with some of the patterned paper from the kit then glued this whole frame down onto the pink textured card stock. Then added my Unicorn to the centre. The enamel dots are from the kit and the Happy Birthday is a sticker from my stash. And that completed the card.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. This post is a little longer than usual because I wanted to let you know my process for producing the frame. But as usual before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought:
I try not to stay in the past for too long. But I do look back to see where I have come from.
Have A Happy Crafty Searching Kind of Day
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:
