I have made only two cards today and both were entered into the 'CraftyMess Daily Challenge' over on their facebook page CraftyMess Facebook Group
The challenge was to make anything as long as it had a main colour of Green...GREEN??!! I so dislike green with me being a pinky girl n all :D
Well my first card I used my new stamps AGAIN. I stamped the same image three times, die cut around the images and then distressed them with Crushed Olive ink.
I then distressed the edges of the backing paper with the same colour and mounted on black matt mirri board and added to a DL size card.
I added small green flat backed gems and four black gems to the corners.
My second Card I die cut a tree out of black matt mirri card and mounted on backing paper which i inked the edges with peeled paint distress ink. I then mounted on a die cut black mirri board die cut.
I then cut backing paper and matted onto black mirri board, rounded the corners and added to 6x6 card blank. I added a smaller die cut with happy birthday and painted with glossy accents. I added a button with some matt black leaf flourishes.
I added little green flat back gems to some of the tree leafs to add a little bling :D
The three tree card won the daily challenge so I am really happy :D I have set tomorrows daily challenge as 'Anything that isnt classed as Paper Crafts'. The reason for this is that CraftyMess have started discussing other crafts like cooking, knitting, Jewellery etc rather than focusing on cards, ATC's and Scrap Pages.
