I did two quick cards today....getting only slightly ahead of myself because weekends are difficult for me to find creative time with everybody home and weekend chores and family time...but this morning, hubby has a dentist appointment and I took full advantage of the free time to do my cards for today and tomorrow!
The first one, I wanted to do a title card for the challenge and the second one...well...I actually started it yesterday and thought it might be going in the garbage because the spray paints went more than a little wild...but I let it dry and thought I'd give it another shot before junking it...So--two of our eight prompts for this week that I incorporated are zebra and a crown, and the week's theme is color-a rainbow of colors...I decided to start with red (where else to start but the beginning of the rainbow, right?) but decided that wasn't quite enough (nothing is ever enough--half my trouble, I think! Haha!) Using my zebra stencil and my homemade acrylic spray paints, I did the background on the second card. It all ran together and you couldn't really get much of a zebra feel from it...so tempted to just pitch it and move on...But then I did my title card with reds and oranges and zebra striping and I really like it! I dug into my slowly growing ephemera stash to do a little collage on the stenciled card, and, eh, it's not so bad...?? Too much critiquing!! Viola:
So there you have it, my first plunge into the Index-Card-a-Day challenge. I think it's gonna be fun playing with these cards all summer--click on over to Daisy Yellow if you want to play along!
