SRM Sticker Challenge and more Pink and Green
Of course, after having made the first card I had a bunch of scraps laying around. So, trying to be thoughtful and use up my scraps when I make them, I created a second card. I actually like it better!! It all started with that strip of the designer paper. I liked the pink flowers on the right. They were in the perfect spot for the sketch!! So I took one of my long owned Metal Edge Tags (Stampin' Up! - retired). However, it was the copper color which wouldn't work. So, I used my silver Sharpie marker and it colored it perfectly!! Then I added the flower (Prima) which I dyed a darker brown, a piece of punched paper for the center and leaves (Martha Stewart) and added my sentiment (Birthday Basics, Papertrey Ink). It is a bit hidden up there but I liked it better there than on the green base!
Sorry for the horrible photography! I am still waiting on new lights for my photo box and today it is dark and dreary here. I also am having trouble with running photoshop for some reason so I am using a different, less effective editing program! :-(
All in all, a good morning's craft!! Now I'm off to Michaels for a craft supply run :-)
Have a great day.
