I was inspired to make a card for the tuesday morning sketches challenge when I saw that this week they are being sponsored by My Creative Classroom . I have taken several classes at My Creative Classroom, and the teachers and courses are just awesome, so whoever is the winner of this challenge will be greatly blessed to receive a free class. If you have never been to check out My Creative Classroom, they have many courses that are certainly worth checking out.
When I read the challenge for the week, I knew it would be a difficult one for me. First off, I love to work from sketches, so this part was great, but this week they added a twist which is to do the card in monochromatic GREEN. As much as I love green, it is one color that I find very difficult to work with, especially solo. So off to my craft space I went. I pulled out all my greens, and stared. Yup, just stared for quite awhile...then I decided on the focal point of the card, which I just love...I made it with my Lacy Labels cricut cartridge. So I placed it on the card and stared some more. I found the background piece of paper to compliment the main piece, but I just could not figure out what to do next.
When I finally clicked in to what I needed to do is when I started tearing paper. The rest of the card is very pristine, but it needed something totally different. The torn paper did that. Like in life, it is often the things that suprise us most that seem to be just what we need. I then was able to play with embellishments adding the stars from my Don Juan cricut cartridge and the swirls from my Cindy Lou Cricut cartridge. The pearls I added for a touch of elegance, beside the torn paper. I think the effect works very well together.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
tuesdaymorningsketches:sketch and monochromatic green
thepinkelephantchallenge: the color green
