Gahh!! My first post of DECEMBER 2011. Have you any idea what that means?! Well for one, it's waaay less than a month to Christmas.. only like TWENTY FOUR DAYS, and secondly.. it's nearly the end of 2011!! Come ON!! Where has this year gone?!
Anywho, here I have for ya another Christmas commission showcasing the new challenge over at Some Odd Girl this fortnight.
That's it. Easy, right? Everything else is entirely up to you!! :)
Why is photographing easel cards so damn tricky?! I dunno, you can't ever get them to look right! :/ No point in asking anyone for tips either, hell.. I can't even photograph a normal card normally. HA!
Here I've used Angel Kaylee, and I've coloured her using the usual mix of Copics and ProMarkers, fussy cut her out and adhered her to the card using Dimensionals. ..You've guessed it, my papers are from Basic Grey - Jovial 6x6 paper pad. I can't get enough of it, and only a few cards ago I was worried I was running out of sheets, it seems this pad self generates.. it's never ending! :D I guess that won't last for long, huh.
Here is a shot of the main portion of the card. I've die cut some angel wings using my Slice to adorn either side of the panel. The whole card base has been cut using Labels Ten nesties - hence the 'easy easel' title. This makes for a narrow card, so I went with hmm.. how can I say this un-size-estly? 'slimmer' embellishments. :) A strip of natural coloured striped ribbon from The Ribbon Girl along side some red bakers twine tied in a pretty bow make up the centre of this card. To keep the easel standing I added some red gemstones from Papermania.
How'd ya like that then!? Check out the rest of the awesomeness over on the Some Odd Girl Blog - those girls are sure to inspire anyone!
