Sorry...I'm VERY far behind right now, but am working hard to get caught up! So today I have 2 Prettie Wednesday cards for you that are from previous week's challenges. The first card was a challenge from Danielle to make a masculine card. Since my dh's birthday is tomorrow, I thought this little puppy dog would be perfect (since he's a real dog man!) I therefore made 2, so I can send one along to Jillian and have one to give to dh. Although, with my dh, I could have just made the one, given it to him with writing on a sticky note, then sent it along to Jillian since he never knows what to do with the cards I give him anyway. ;-)
I stamped puddles here (that's what I call him anyway!) from Rainy Day Friends with my Brilliance black ink pad, then colored him with Prismacolor pencils and OMS/blending stumps. Then, I stamped the puddle and rain with tempting turquoise. The papers are from this cute pet papers stack I picked up back in February - of course I can no longer remember who makes them...anyone out there know?
For the layout, I used a sketch created by someone in my SU! downline, Irina. I posted a card earlier that I had made at a class at her house when I was in California back in April, and she's got some blog candy right now with this sketch...so go check it out!!
My second card is for Christie's challenge to use acetate. I was having stamper's block with this one...so I stamped this wonderful MFT stamp from my April Paper Pretties kit with white stazon on acetate first (just inking the outside) then I stamped the full thing with black on stamper's select white cardstock to color in (with primsa's again since they were out!) I adhered my acetate to the white layer with some stickles I used to glam up the flowers a bit. Works great!
I also used some stickles in my ribbon slide...I just love that look! Once I got the coloring done, this came together pretty quickly. This one is going to Charmaine, guess it's a little late for Mother's Day this year, altho mom can consider it her mom's day card since it's the first I've had a chance to make this year!! I know...pitiful!
Ok...be sure to come back tomorrow because I'll have tomorrow's Prettie Wednesday card, as well as a Prettie Peek, and a big announcement of my own. You won't want to miss it!
