I have cards for 2 challenges here. The first is for the Doodle Dragon Studio challenge blog. They want a card with "Fancy Folds". The second card is for a GinaK card challenge. She wants a 'fall' memory as the idea for your project. To see this card, scroll on down. Feel free to check out the DDS blog entry along the way! I don't know about fancy but this is at least a little different.
The images are all Dustin Pike images in a collage on the card. All are colored with copic markers. The glitter is SU dazzling diamonds. They are all colored, cut out and pop-dotted (is that a word?) on a black card blank. The edge of the card is punched with a MS border punch. The ribbon is from my stash.
The horn of the monster above the 'beware' catches on the bottom of the bat to hold the card closed.
My second card is for the GinaK challenge to make a card based off of a favorite fall memory. My favorite part of fall is just the colors. This card was easy to put together.
I sponged the background using memento inks and masking with post-it notes. Stamped the image, again with memento inks using a stamp from Rubber Stampede. The darkest set of trees were stamped with the mask removed to allow them to be the foreground. The leaves are a punched out shape colored with Ranger alcohol inks. The ribbon is from Michaels. The sentiment is stamped and cut out with SU wordpunch window. The card base was embossed with a CB folder. The leaves are up on pop dots for some dimension. (I believe I read a tutorial on doing this background on Crafting the Web)
This is quite an easy card to do, took about 15 minutes.
