Very seldom do I make a card without a mat behind the image, but I thought I would do it this time. My card is showing LuLu from CS Designs starting her Christmas shopping. The greeting, which is perfect for the ocassion, is from my sponsor Create with TLC. The small circles under the ribbon have a little spray webbing on them and the little lady is colored with Copic markers. Notice all the jewels she is wearing as she dresses very fashionablely when she shops. The ribbon is a piece I salvaged from a gift I received last Christmas. This makes this usable as an entry in CS Designs' Recycled Christmas challenge.
MicheleCircles are wonderful -- I've noticed that I use them often in my work even without thinking about it. To get started with this challenge I went to the TLC Creations website because they are the challenge sponsor. I found and bought some very fun goodies. The products are made available in a couple of different formats so you have some flexibility in using the digital sheets. This creation is something a little different for me. I used a sheet from "My Garden Set Papers" and several circle images from the "Summer Sherbert Set." In photoshop I dragged the circles into the background paper sheet in a random fashion. I love the background this created. I then printed it and adhered it to some lovely Paper Temptress card stock after cutting with decorative scissors. I liked the background so much I really didn't want to mess with it but in the end I attached a nice K & Company butterfly. I hope you'll join the circles fun!
The sentiment is from Create with TLC. I thought it was amusing and somewhat a bit of truth. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday with its prominent circle for the layout of my card. The background is done using a Tim Holtz texture fade. The image stamp and metal wheel is also from his collection. The Steampunk flavor adds a bit of fun.
ValerieI have made a tag to accompany a wedding gift. The background has been distressed with TH inks in stormy skies, Victorian velvet, wild honey and forest moss. I used a flourish stamp and a *Love words* stamp for the background, and added 2 rings, a heart and a white rose. The wedding rings are the symbol for eternity, as they have no beginning and no end.
