Last of the cards from last weekend...

Here are the last of the cards from my big card-making marathon last weekend. On this first one, I altered the white flower with Glimmer Mist and chalk inks, and then I added a pearl and gem combo in the center.

Products: Blank Card: PaperSource; Patterned Paper and Diecuts: Marks Paper Company; Ribbon: Offray; Flower: Prima; Rub-on: Making Memories; Gems: Michaels, Mark Richards; Pearls: Mark Richards; Spray Ink: Tattered Angels; Ink: Clearsnap.

On this one, I wanted to make the flower more brownish purple. Marks Paper Company does make both a digital and physical version of their kits, so I could have just altered the digi version to brownish purple, printed and used that, but I thought I try to alter the one I already had in my hand. I lightly colored over the flower with a brown colored pencil, I like the way it turned out, I think this technique could be used for a lot of those times when something is just a shade or two off of what you want.

Here I covered the butterflies in German Glass Glitter, I like this type of glitter, it's not as bright as regular glitter and it has more of old old-time nostalgic feel to it.

The is just a simple card, after I made it I wasn't quite sure who I would give the card to...but now I'm thinking think it would really be nice for a young girls birthday or elementary school graduation.

So here is my first official holiday card for this year. I guess it's never too early to start, and in reality it must not be that early because the stores have already started putting out the holiday decor for sale!

So, that's it for that round of cards. I've been working on a few things today; maybe I can get the photos taken and get them posted tomorrow.  

Thanks for stopping by today!   Patty
