...for making this first card!! lol...
My schedule for Monday included making an "I'm Sorry" card. So I looked through the sketches I had for challenges this week and decided on the sketch at Sketches by Carly:
So I get started on my card, choose my papers and colors...and produce this terrible, awful, never going to show this again card!
Well I couldn't end my day that way, so I tried again. I looked up a different digital sentiment to use and changed my colors a little bit. I didn't want to totally give up on the patterned paper or sketch I used...what would be the challenge if I didn't try to improve on something I didn't like?
Once I had my plan set out, I started putting it all together. And this is the result:
I cut out some floral shapes with my cricut and started constructing the flowers. I spent a good part of yesterday looking up details, styles, and techniques on how to make different flowers. That was so fun! But ultimately put me 2 days behind on my initial "schedule." Opps! Oh well :)
The centers of the large flowers are just big blobs of 3D paint. I don't have any gems or pearls large enough to fit in those centers. I was hoping it would have been a bit more shiny when dry...but doesn't appear to be.
I made some buds using the same petals as the large flowers, I just cut out the centers so the petals were in a strip and then twisted them up. Then punched out some little daisy shapes, added a little glitter to them and a gem in the centers, and shoved them into the arrangement :)
