Did you have a big Super Bowl Party? We had one but I'm not that interested in the game but some of the commercials are pretty funny. It is time for a new TMITA/PCC challenge. This week we are working with this beautiful digital image from Nina May called "Flight of the Fuschia". Patti J Gilliam is the design team hostess this week and she has asked us to make a "comforting" (thinking of you, get well, sympathy, etc.) card using flourishes and/or pearls.
I'm not sure this shows up well in the picture, but I embossed the white cs with Sizzix Final Press embossing folder then cut a frame out of the middle of it with a rectangle Nestability -- so this is an open frame rather than a layered frame. There are flourishes in this embossed design. I then cut a smaller frame out of a piece of black cs and mounted this on a piece of Sahara Sand cs. "Thinking of you" was black embossed on the bottom of the frame. The bird and fuschia were printed off then colored with Copic markers and cut out. The design was mounted with dimensional tape. Some leaves were punched out of the Sahara Sand cs and put in the corner. Black pearls were added to complete the card.
Be sure to go over to TMITA/PCC this week to get this free digital image and enter a card into the challenge.
