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.
