Wild 2

Wild Wednesday challenge at Simon this week.  I almost went wild trying to create this simple looking card.  ARGGGGHHHHHH!!!!  I chose some wild colors from my distress inks and muted them down for a color wash.  then added some more concentrated color on top.  Here’s where it got wild.  I wanted to do a frame but i didn’t have the right design in an open frame die.  I used THIS die from Sizzix to get my frame.

The tricky part was getting the wordws out of there.  I’m not so handy with those cutting knives but that’s what i used.  I positioned the word “are” back into the frame but moved it up a quarter of an inch.  i was going to try and use the “your” and “my” from this same die but they did not cut through all the way and it was a pain to try and cut them out.  That’s when i decided to cut the whole thing apart with the craft knife. I used the u and my from two different sentiments.  okay can you see the wild coming out yet!  I decided to use the embossed polka dots on vellum after seeing a kristina werner class and i thought the dots would give this kind of a “wild” creature look.  the sunshine die is a Simon die.  thanks for stopping by.  i think i should quit for tonight but i have so little time in the craft room these days i like to take advantage of the time.

Checking into Word Art Wednesday 242-243 also.
