I love making cards that represent alliteration. Plaid, Peach, Poppies, Piano, Prayer card.
It has been a long time since I joined a Tuesday Tea Party Challenge. This week was to make an encouraging card for fellow cardmaker Kathleen who is going to have surgery. For today's sketch, I did something with my card that I rarely do, I flipped the sketch sideways. My card was inspired by this piano card. Super easy. I used my word window punch and punched 10 white and 7 black to make the piano keys. The two intersecting small panels I made with drywall tape that I rubbed copper inka gold on top. The copper looks really good with the peach/orange color combo. The black and white plaid dp, sentiment and the poppies are from a digital set from Daydream Designs. It is from one of the new Spring sets called. POPPIES FOR YOU I made my card into an easel card. It is finished off with baby's breath and die cut branches. I used 3 different techniques to do the poppies. I printed them out and Watercolored them. Then I cut them out and did Paper Tole and finally I did Burned Glue to make the centers. This card will be entered in this week's Word Art Wednesday (WAW126) If you would like to see close up photos check out this post on my blog. Mississippi-McGyver
