Cardmaking Contrasts

Hi Everybody,

Thanks for all your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.

Today I have two completely different cards for you.

Here is my first card, very CAS using some of the free Easter Downloads from the docrafts Creativity Club:

Hi Chicks

I simply used one of my lovely Xcut punches to punch my border, cur a strip of green paper, attached it to my card and added some pink ricrac ribbon (Fantastic Ribbons). I then fuzzy cut some chickens, adhered a wing to one of them (bird builder punch by Stampin’Up!), attached them to my card and added some gems as eyes. I then hand wrote my sentiment and doodled a border around my speech bubble and added it to my card to finish.

On my next card I went a bit ‘bling mad’. I used the lovely Penelope Pansy image be Lacy Sunshine which is on offer here.

Penelope Pansy

I was in two minds whether to post this card or not, but then decided to go ahead with it anyway. As you can see I have used another quirky colour scheme, it was either going to be pink/lilac or the one above with its contrasting colours. For my colouring of Penelope I tried something different to what I normally do and I rather like it.

I also decided to link it up with a couple of challenges
