It's Thursday again my friends! ;) Long day at work today, yack. Tis monies though.. so I ain't complaining. I bought myself some new (walking) boots (for work) on Tuesday and they're the comfiest(sp?!) ever! :) Happy feet = good times. They're Brasher and just awesome. I have numerous pairs of walking boots but of course none of them were black.. so hell - I just have another pair to add to my collection. It ain't like my feet are gonna grow anymore though, right?
Onto some sadder news! :( I lost the first round of darts singles last night. I won't go into details.. but to say I was gutted would be an understatement. Ahh well, there's always next year. Plus I have the doubles to play yet, so fingers crossed for me and my partner for that. I want at least one trophy this season! :)
Okay, now I've sufficiently waffled on.. let's introduce the new challenge over at SOG this fortnight. We want to see..
BLACK AND WHITE IMAGES
Challenging for me, definitely. But that's the whole point!! I find it so hard to create enough definition and depth between the shades of colour. I used a mix of Copics and Promarkers - ice, cool and warm greys.. so my image looks a bit higgildy piggldy. I was waiting on my delivery of a few more Copics to try and do the whole image in Warm Greys, but they didn't arrive in time. I was already a day late uploading my card to the DT blog. Silly me! :(
As warned.. here are some more papers from that delicious American Crafts - Hello Sunshine collection. *blush* I told ya!!
I dunno what it is.. but for a neat freak I've got a love for adhereing papers at wonky angles lately. Hopefully it's just a phase as I think my cards are starting to look a little 'samey' - please tell me otherwise! HA. Anywho, I used the gorgeous Kimono Kaylee from the latest SOG digi release.
I went a little OTT with the Liquid Pearls too, but I kinda like it - ties it all in and adds another touch of blue aside from the seam binding. I used a sentiment from Hero Arts and punched three pieces of blue patterned paper from the Hello Sunshine collection using SU! Decorative Labels punch to create a strip across the card for my sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
