A big CONGRATS to Emily! Emily is always a regular in the challenges and she has such a wonderful gallery. I chose her God's Love Sympathycard. I kept the half tree type image, but changed most everything else. Really, I did case her card! But like everything I've worked on this last week, it took a left turn. Sometimes that happens and you just gotta go with it.
The images are a sneak peek from DRS Designs. Love this lazy leopard but I bet you never thought you'd see a pink leopard. Pink Panther, maybe. But hey, I found this really neat pink ribbon w/ leopard spots and I just had to use it.
I'm also adding this to the Inspiration Challenge because I saw this really cool Leopard Necklace and my image is perfect for it. Also the Fan Club gallery cause she's a fancy pink leopard w/ a pink diamond brad on her pink leopard ribbon!
Love this lazy leopard but I bet you never thought you'd see a pink leopard. Pink Panther, maybe. But hey, I found this really neat pink ribbon w/ leopard spots and I just had to use it. So I planned on using the same layout Emily did, but when I was looking for some black card stock, I found this cute little black oval frame and that was all she wrote. I decided I needed to use it and I did a quick little out of the box cutting on my image to fit the oval.
The background is an embossing folder. It took me longer to figure out how to color it like I wanted than anything else on this card. I arrived at this final result by sponging on the pink ink (not too carefully..there's a lot of background so go for it!). Then I rubbed the soft sand ink pad across the high points and lastly, tapped the black ink (with a light touch) on the high points, kind of hit and miss. I think it goes with the ribbon really well now. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups and more details on how I did the background are on my blog: The Write Stuff
