It's Friday....yeah! I'm so ready for the weekend since it's been a pretty busy week. I think a lot of you understand that! :) That also means I have a card to show you for the next Friday Mashup challenge. This week's challenge is from Tara, and it was definitely a challenge until I figured out what I wanted to make. Then it was a snap...minus all the water coloring I did. Here's Tara's challenge for us...
Create a project with "Stripes".
Create a project with "Movable or Removable elements".
or Mashup it Up! and create a project with "Movable Elements & Stripes".
I don't think I've made any cards that have movable or removable parts. I guess if I have it's been quite a while. The stripes part was easy. I new I wanted to use the stripes embossing folder one last time before it retires. I really like this embossing folder and I'm going to miss it. I guess I'll still have it, but it will be retired so I won't use it as much. I went with a removable bookmark for the other part of the challenge, and made sure the card still looked pretty after the bookmark was taken off. I did leave the glue dot on the card so you could see how I attached the bookmark...just a glue dot on the back of the ribbon. Anyway I really wanted to use some of the new In Colors that are coming out on June 2nd, so I did a little water coloring with the Blackberry Bliss, Moss Meadow and Hello Honey. I think they turned out pretty well, but inking a stamp and using the ink as a water color did give them just a bit of a different color. Not enough that it bothered me though. :) Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I used the Freshly Made Sketches challenge to come up with my idea. So glad it was out there! :)
Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup HERE because the other designers cards are awesome!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
