Bad, Bad Camera plus a FREEBIE!!

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR THE FREEBIE! Those of you who are interested in reading my post… THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Aah well… I am here with a new card… This means the picture has been shot using my cellphone… I am not very happy with the result… but I am SO happy with how the card turned out… it is absolutely fabulous (bragging is an art). There is a new flower that I tried I will be showing you guys that too... So beginning with the card.
Here we go… the cellphone picture.


One glittery card here huh?! But the black never looks gaudy…that's the best part about it.

The flowers are hand drawn (very very roughly I tell ya).The stems are hand stitched. The sentiment is hand written (as if you all couldn't tell!). The swirly thing, beneath the ribbon is one of the border diecuts (thank God I ordered this). I was planning on buying some border punches, but all those punches will cost me almost as much as a Silhouette will, well NOT almost… I am just trying to justify buying a Silhouette! Anyway, I think I will wait a while and get the machine instead. It was almost 150$ this time (Knowing it will cost me a little more than half of its cost just to get it delivered here, I still want it).

Oh yes, the butterfly is hand drawn too, and it was a pretty rough sketch. I am so happy it turned out so cute. I know it looks kinda abnormal through this angle but it’s really not. And the shimmery, holographic yellow ribbon…. matches with the flower centers! I really wanted to do this combo… The yellow really brings out the whole card.

I now see that I have not erased the pencil marks from the dashed line (the butterfly’s path). Most of you might hate the light glare… but this was the only way I could avoid the purple hue… see the bottom-right corner… that’s what I am talking about.
Totally forgot about the flower. Here it is:


It’s not complete…. and I wasn't even planning on using it. I was just playing with my father’s “stock exchange” reports and came up with this.

All right, enough with the blabbering. Gotta go create some more. Maybe again with black, white and yellow. I am just loving this combo right now. Or maybe I will use this ridiculously square sodding flower somewhere.

Challenges: Inky Impressions (flowers), Inktegrity Design Team Challenges (anythig goes), Craft Your Passion Challenges (Glitter), ABC Challenge (Glitter), PTW (sparkly&bright), Sentimental Sundays (distressing)


The freebie:
Made this for someone, she gave me the quotation… it is by Caryn Leschen. I thought I’d share.

Hey everyone! Oh how I missed Blogville! <3

I made this card couple of months back, this post got lost in the drafts.

This card has such gorgeous colours and flowers… I didnt want to give it away :P

I love the middle oval part of the card. I think I will try to make these kind of flowers again and use them differently. The papers are an internet download. And yes the mark on the left is from a water drop (clumsy me).

The tiny flowers and leaves are punched. The four bigger ones are handmade.


Hope to bring a new card next time, but sadly my camera is not working and I will have to take pics from my cell phone… no likey :(
