Welcome! I had a lot of scraps around from a 6x6 Pebbles paper pad called "Family Ties." I decided to try the OWH starburst technique. After piecing the starburst and trimming it to make a card, I had this nice strip of starburst left over so I decided to make another banner card for OWH. Here's the banner card first:
And here's the starburst that I cut the banner strip from:
I haven't used this technique in ages and it was extra fun to get two cards out of it! Thanks for stopping by.
And what really caught my eye was Cindy R's inspiration card:
It has a clean and simple look, but with an artistic background. I'm not good at either of those styles, I decided to get out my Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer tool, which I really haven't used, and try to C.A.S.E. Cindy's design.
I made the background spritzing Copics and then I added some inking with a stencil. I applied some white paint to a corrugated tag and let it dry overnight. I didn't have any Washi tape, so I tore a strip of paper and distressed it. Here's what I came up with:
Typical of me, my card lacks Cindy's Clean and Simple feeling but it was fun trying something "out of the box" for me and I like how it turned out. I am working on cards for my final OWH box; cards are due by August 1st!
I haven't joined in a challenge at The Shabby Tea Room for quite awhile, so it's about time! I've been feeling a little mojo-less and their inspiration photo for this week's "In My Garden" challenge perked me right up. First, here's their pretty inspiration photo:
