Got heaps of proper work to do today so i am going to make this a rather brief blog entry. Just the facts (ma'am) on the cards for this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge.
Kathy set the dare which is all about food and the results are mouthwatering!
I was s inspired I made two and have thought of lots of other fruity cards which will probably never get made now. maybe just as well.
The one I put on the blog was actually the afterthought which now I prefer!
Piggy tales patterned paper. Printed text boxes (so excited to have mastered white writing so expect more of this). The apple looks scrummy in real life. It is strips of various patterned papers glued onto card and cut out in an apple shape then triple embossed using UTEE. One of the buttons is a doodlebug spotty one. The others are plain doodlebugs which I have added to using a cheapo paint pen from Wilkinsons. It is pants for writing but the bizz on buttons. So expect to see more of these soon too!
When I was first panicking about the dare I suddenly remembered an old SA kit with lemon paper and lo a card was born.
(ah flashback to Hywel aged 2.5. we walked past some houses and I said that while I was pregnant with him those houses hadn't been born. The precocious cheeky brat looked at me with scorn and said "houses aren't born!" . Those of you who may wish to have children who learn to speak early, trust me. it is never good. it just gives them more years of putting you right)
Papers all from that SA kit - April 2006 - there are still some for sale. Printed out words. Lemonade glass is white card behind vellum and a tiny piece of one of the small patterned paper behind. Loads of black pen. The lemons have got some glossy accents on them to give a bit of depth.
Must fly now!
