It literally took me HOURS to do this card because I kept taking it apart, redoing the images etc. trying to make it just RIGHT! I have to admit, I'm really not that creative when it comes to "cards"; however, when it comes to scrapbook layouts, you are going to see some amazing work from me!
Ok, so this weeks challenge was "What has the weather done for you lately? What's in your forecast? The challenge this week is to share a WEATHER related project. This can be a card, a layout, anything your heart desires."
So, here is the card I'm submitting... calling it "Love is in the air" well, because that is the sentiment!
|"Love is in the Air"|
Melisa Marie McConnell 2011
For Scrapbook Place Challenges
The 2 big white hearts are punched out on glitter paper with my fiskars heart punches. On the hearts on the "love is in the air" sentiment and the heart the girl is holding, I used white glitter glue. it is SUPER glittery, you just can't tell in the picture. The rain is colored over with my prisma's and gamsol, and then I ran some "true blue" stickles over the lines it looks all globby, but it's really not. the lines are very thin and uniform (I just wrote "unicorn" and had to erase it. lol) I used wired ribbon for the background and a few small PINK gem hearts in the top corner. they look purple, but they really are pink that match the lines in the paper. ;) I colored my images with prismas and gamsol.
And to top it off, I just realized, I didn't BUY anything that was used on this card, I had it all on hand, so it gets to go towards the STASH BASH too! (yep, even the stickles, cause I've had it for a few weeks now!)
