This time we have a really fun challenge for you, its time for
#57 Topsy Turvy Mismatch!
Confused? What we want you to do is to take an image clearly meant for one thing and make something that mismatch! A Valentine image for a Helloween card, an Easter image for a birthday card.
I choosed Daphne Pin Up- an image I would consider as a birthday/to-my-best-friend/maybe a communion kind of image. I used it for a Christmas card in VERY untraditional colors and to be honest- I had a blast making it!
See something else strange about my card? The image looks kind of grainy doesn't it? From an angle;
After finished coloring I was really happy with it, look; she even got makeup on! Thats something new for me :) But I wanted to try something more. Something I have had on my "things to try-list" for two years: covering an image with microbeads. I did it! I took a thin, a very thin, layer of glue over the entire image and sprinkled loads of microbeads over it. I love how it turned out :)
I also borrowed my moms sewing machine- I can't sew! I didn't even manage to get "straight foreward" stitches with it *lol* Other things I have used; seam binding ribbon, Distress Ink, raindrops, white leafs, roses in different sizes and colors, MS snowflake punch, MS corner punch (for the circle behind the image), and berries. Unknown sentiment stamp. DP from Maya Design.
Will get my recipe card in here when Blogger is done acting up.
