This week's challenge is all about doubles...double imgae, double embellieshments, double sentiments, heck just about anything to do with doubles! Me? I used two embellies on my project :) But we'll get to that in a moment. I first want to show you the image that the DT were given to work with this month. She's called Ella at peace and you can find her at the store:
I coloured her with my coloured pencils (trying to save my all important Sharpies from extinction!) and cut her out with a Martha Stewart circle cutter. I inked the edges of the image in brown roan ink.
As you can see from the above, I stuck little flat backed pearls on the centres of the flowers surrounding Ella, I like a little bit of dimension on my cards to really give them that extra PoP! I layered her twice (another double time!) onto plain cardstock and then placed her on my round card base, also cut with the Martha stewart circle cutter, but leaving a section straight for the card fold. You will see this later. I must admit, sorry AM, no scraps were used on this card! aaaahhhhh! I added to the pile with these leftovers!
Wait! I did use one ickle scrap! I made a banner sentiment from a Kaiserkraft stamp in my stash and a little purple paper cut off, inked it in brown and laid off the embossing for a change. I curled the banner over a pencil to get it to look all bendy :)
Then, to complete the double time requirement, I added a second embellie (first was the pearls!)...what could it be?
I've never tried a card where elements are literally running off the outer edges of the card and this is what inspired today's card. I think it adds a lot of interest to an otherwise very plain card.
See the straight edge at the top of the card? that's the part of the card base that I left uncut by the circle cutter to make the fold. Also, I cut off a sliver of the back of the card base along the bottom in order for the card to stand up properly :)
So that's it folks! Remember to submit your entry at the challenge blog :) Have a fantastic Thursday!
