Now that's odd! (CYP)
A new week...a new challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges. The theme this week is That is Odd and the challenge is to have odd numbers of embellies on your card. I worked in groups of odd numbers (5 buttons, 3 beads) but as it turned out there are also 11 embellishments on the card in total, another odd number. Obviously, I have no trouble being odd :)
I chose to work with the sweet Annabel digi from Sugar Nellie Stamps. I had purchased several of the Simply Adorable line the other day so I was anxious to colour this little beauty. I used Prismacolor pencils...I know, what else is new. I love my Prismas. Annabel was cut out around the circle frame provided and the edges were inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink. The scalloped frame around her was cut with a Spellbinders die from the MME Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing 6x6 paper pad and matted with dark brown cardstock. The framed image was popped up with foam dots.
More of this gorgeous paper collection was used for the background and striped band. Since the paper is double sided, there are an amazing number of patterns that work together. Both the background and the band were matted in the same brown cardstock. Five little buttons were threaded with brown floss and adhered along the band.
To embellish the top right corner, one piece of cheesecloth was adhered to the back of one felt flower button which had three letter beads glued to the center. The left corner had one corner piece cut with a Martha Stewart punch adhered a little in from the corner to balance the card. There you have it...one odd card...LOL. Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT on the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog for more inspiration. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for this odd challenge :) There's a wonderful prize on offer from our sponsor, Sweet Stamp Shop, this time around.
Thanks so much for visiting today and thanks also to my followers. I think it's so cool that people want to follow my art journey. Thank you so much.
