I hope you come play along with the Queen for the Day Challenge.
I've been gone for a week and so this is my first card in a week! I tried to get caught up on a few challenges...
1) Technique Lovers Challenge - create your own faux embossing (use punches or die cuts of the same color on your background). I immediately thought of using this fun die - Tasteful Trim
2) CAS challenge - scallops
3) Color Challenge - Tangerine Tango (I don't have any so I used CALYPSO CORAL), Daffodil Delight and Old Olive
4) Of course - the Queen for the Day Challenge. I was inspired by Charlene's card.
I am having fun finding different ways of using my edgelits and embossing. Here I did a fairly wide strip and embossed the middle.
I added dots to my lily with marker and also colored it a bit with versamarker. The leaves are from the bird wing punch and I also colored a bit with versamarker.
I used my edgelits to create the rainbow!!!! Also for the "grass". I used the cupcake punch to make the clouds.
I just got this fun set and what I did when I was mounting it was I cut the sentiments off so I can use them separately. Then I think I will be more creative with them. I actually curved the sentiment a bit when sticking it on to my clear block so it would follow the curve of the rainbow.
I think this will make a good card for many occasions and even cute for a little boy.
I was inspired by Charlene's card here.
