I made it just under the wire again to finish my altered playing cards for Claudine's challenge. This week was eaten up by several full days out, so I was glad the theme was an easy one--monochromatic, which I know you already know means using just one color in various shades. White and black are also permitted.
My cards are pretty simple so I'll only make a few comments.
This was one of the cards that I had created some texture on, so after covering with the lighter aqua color, I used my finger to lightly rub the darker highlights just on the "hills". I did the border the same way. My moose punch came in handy this week as did a piece of washi tape that is truly aqua but looks greyish in my photo. I added some highlights on it with an aqua marker and also circled the quote.
A metal stencil, acrylic paint, and a paintbrush was used to make the sunflower design. It is quite messy when I removed the stencil, and I covered up as much as I could with my favorite white pen. The quote just came to me as I was listening to the weather forecast of 2-6" of snow today! Really?! I rubbed darker green around the card's border with my finger as I did on the first card but neglected to take a photo.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy First Day of Spring! Have a happy creative weekend everyone!
