But the theme of my cards this week, is... "The Cards the White Pen Failed...". I tried using my white Silhouette pen on two of the three cards this week and it just didn't turn out with the intensity I wanted. On the first card it smudged (my fault, sort of) and on the second card it basically erased itself as it wrote. Annoying. But practice makes... betterment.
The first card is a St. Patrick's Day card. I love St. Patrick's Day... mainly because I love emerald green. For this card I combined a layout sketch and a challenge to make a card that is monochromatic. Other than the faint white ink and the smudging over the Never Iron, I really like this card. The green background is sort of iridescent and adds a fun element to the card.
I chalked up the problems with the white pen on the last card to user error. So I went straight into a second card using the white pen only to be disappointed again. This time it was as though the pen was erasing itself as it double wrote it. Maybe I should only have the pen write one time. But I'm still happy with the look of the card. It was a bit hard to photograph and everything looks really sort of blah, but the colors really are bright and vibrant in person.
Here's the sentiment close up:
I used a theme challenge (hearts or arrows) and a layout sketch for this card:
Here's another photo of the card.
The last card this week is actually the first of its type that I've made... a Get Well card!
I didn't get the cleanest cut o the words, I'm thinking maybe my blade needs to be replaced. I used a photo/theme challenge and layout sketch
Well there it is! Another week, another set of cards!
Check back tomorrow for my best dressed from last night's Academy Awards! Hope the start to your week is a good one!
