Today's challenge at the High Hopes Blog is to make a card using Pink and Brown as the main colors! It's brought to us by the lovely Guest Diva Tab! Her card will display the two stamps up for grabs as blog candy! Why not join in the fun, link up a photo of your project onto the HH blog, and you could have a chance to win the stamps!
I did a tutorial which is the post just below this one, and used this image Brayden as my example. Not sure what occasion I want to use it for, so I left it without a sentiment. I might just give him a party hat and balloons for a birthday party, and perhaps give him a sign that says, "please don't pin the tail on me". That might get a chuckle, what do you think?
I used my CB and Distressed Stripes folder (thank you Janette, for that great gift!). I used "Doodle Parts" Spellbinders die for the little swirl. The pink heart button is hand made using Sculpey (that stuff is addictive!). And I sponged some Tea Dye Distress ink on the pink layer. The other distressing was done with the edge of a metal ruler. I've tried other tools, nothing works faster or easier!
Here is a close up of the colored image. I couldn't help myself, I touched it up a bit. I went back with some E71 and E74 and gave the neck more shading, and then I actually livened up the highlights by removing some color with the colorless blender. I love the furry look I achieved! (see my tutorial below to find out how to get this look).
Here is a peek at the inside. Thanks for looking today, and God bless you my friends!
