I am attempting to post a few cards I made this month but didn't have the energy to blog! I made a series of Graphic 45 Safari Adventure cards for Unstampabelle's June challenge. They asked for a masculine card with the twist of Add an Animal....and, as always, for their challenges with No Stamping. It ends tomorrow so I thought I'd better get these posted!!! Yikes!!!
Are you like I am and tend to hoard those amazing Graphic 45 products???? Well, I have been doing a lot better about using the papers and journaling cards, but I get stymied when I try to add the other little doo-dads like the chippies and stickers. I decided for this series of cards, I would use some of those embellishments whether I knew the right way to do it or not!! lol....
So with this card, I chose two of the small ephemera cards (I think these are designed for pocket scrapping, but I like them for fast card fronts!) and one of the chippies. I inked around the edges of the elements, tied a stray scrap of twine on the chippie, and added Glossy Accents to make the parrot really stand out. I LOVE MY G45!!!
Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 Safari Adventure Collection: Solids and Prints Cardstock, Ephemera Cards, Chipboard Diecuts
Distress Ink in Black Soot and Walnut Stain
Core'dinations Black Cardstock
