Well done to last weeks winner of Challenge #33 - Paula (email entry). Today over at PTD the challenge is 'Blue', you can create anything you like.. aslong as it relates blue - interpret that how you wish.
The sponsor this week is Cardmadfairy's Creations, they offer a gorgeous range of digis and their blog is very inspirational, with loads of hints and tips. Why not pop on over and take a look? For my card I have used one of their digis called 'Butterfly'. The winner of this weeks challenge will recieve x3 digi images of their choice from Craftmadfairy's Creations.
Here is what I came up with:
I'm loving the butterfly digi - its really versatile. It looks so delish in blue. I decided to take the challenge quite literally, and make the whole card.. BLUE!!.. with a few hints of silver here and there. I don't know why but one of the staples looks rusty.. trust me, its not. Strange how photos can twist things, LMBO!
This is my first ever easel card, its only 3.75" square, but that is all this image called for. I printed it onto Rymans 200gsm white coated cardstock and cut it into a simple rectangle. I then took a 3/4" circle punch and took out the corners - it sort of imitates a ticket shape, I like it - it adds something different to the image. I ripped some Not Quite Navy SU! cardstock along on edge and attatched a strip to the top and bottom of the main image. I added a little stitching - both real and faux to define the clean lines.
The sentiment is from Basic Greys 'What a Pear' stamp set, I have embossed it in silver. I added some velvet scalloped ribbon from My Minds Eye Lush Collection in BLUE!! to keep the card standing up right. I added a tiny die cut from my nesties Labels Two in order to write a sentiment. I finished the card off with some corner rounding, some little staples and a few BLUE!! pearls from Prima.
