I once again tried to get my Diva on and made another card for the "Get Your Diva On" Verve Stamps Challenge. But this time I swapped out one of the elements...don't worry they said it was allowed. So, again, hi my name is Andrea and my card must contain 1) blue, yellow, and cream, 2) have 3 layers or be square and 3) have flowers, ribbon, and eyelets which I switched to twine, buttons, and brads from one of the other recipes.
I wasn't in the mood for a ton of coloring and a needed a masculine birthday card, so I pulled out Mr. Webster the Owl and matching sentiment from the Cutie Critters Sayings set from Paper Makeup Stamps and colored the stamp directly with markers. Then after it was stamped I filled in some areas with an aquabrush, dragging the colors out from the lines. This card has a lot of brown which I considered a neutral...maybe I kind of negated the color scheme by using so much. Oh well!
So now you should jump over to Lisa Kind's Blog and wish her a Happy Birthday (and check out the other birthday creations!) and definitely participate in the Sketch Saturday Challenge #151 (and make sure you link it up to that site) so you could have a chance to win a gift certificate to PMS...you know you want that cute owl! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
