Unity World Card Making Day Challenges...continued.....
It was very difficult to conceive of a card that didn't have black matting somewhere on it, but for the "No Patterned Paper" challenge (#17), I even avoided the matting and went with a little masking and I have to say I like it. I could actually save the extra stamp in mailing it because it has no bulk. I'm really enjoying these Suzi Blu girls. And I'm testing the Ippity waters with this postcard stamp image. (Ippity is a Unity line that is sold through individual agents as opposed to stores or the company website.) Love that the postcard has writing on it. I just had to vintage it up with Ranger's Distress Ink. The Eiffel Tower and sentiment are from the Sept KOTM. Another fun fact: I made a happy mistake. I forgot to mask the girl when I stamped the postcard but I like the script on her skirt, so... no problem! Lol.
The shaker card was for Challenge #2. It just so happens that I was planning on making a shaker card for the holidays, so I had this neat "sweet treat" cup from Stampin' Up on hand to use on my card. The funny thing is that as much as I planned out the placement, I didn't realize that the "snow" in the shaker was going to wind up looking like it's drifting in mid-air! Lol. Oh well, it looks cute when it's flat. Too bad, the light didn't capture the extra "sparkly-ness" of the white paper. It's glistens, really.
Thanks for looking. Card specifics can be found in my SCS Gallery. Stay tuned because I really hope to do all 23 challenges, so I'll try to post often. Have a great day!
