I couldn't help it - had to make another card for KW's color challenge. On the left were the colors that Kristina challenged us with this week. I loved the card that I made last night for this color challenge (you see that card here or scroll below) - but I kinda had this idea in my head and not enough time last night.
The card enough was simple to make - a little tearing here, a little circle punching there and slap on some adhesive and call it a day. I guess the only thing somewhat different was that the image of the cheetah i stamped on the white part of the black cardstock and then cut it from the white side so that the it was reversed. It kinda worked better that way because of the way I tore the "hill" for the cheetah to sit on.
The stamped sentiment was inked with white craft paint and when it was dry I went over it with a paint brush with white paint... why? you ask did I do that? I have no idea... I didn't want the craft experience to end ?? Now that I think of it, I could have embossed it with white - Oh well!
Maybe you are wondering what does a cheetah have to do with a thank you card? Well, cheetah's are my most favorite animal ... I think they are beautiful and amazing. When I was in Kenya I got to see a few on the "hunt" and I totally fell in love. So for me, to send a thank you card to someone with a cheetah on it - is sending them a thank you card with so much love in it.
Well, I am going to take off my craft hat and put on my chef's hat now... ready to wrangle up some supper. Since school has started, we are trying to get everyone back on an early routine.... Can ya'll believe that tomorrow is Friday! Where did this week go.
Thanks so much for coming over to a visit.
