I'll show you a little card that I have been working on. I had one of those 'lightbulb' moments (I hear mine in the voice of Steve Carrel in Despicable Me) the other night, and I literally shot up in bed with an idea for the MFT Guest DT contest going on tight now here. Unfortunatly, the idea didn't translate exactly how I wanted it when I was put to task. Maybe it had something to do with the idea coming to me in dream format.
Anyway, the theme is RIP & ROLL (ripped paper, rolled whatever....) I did a crapload of ripping, so much so, that my digits are aching and I'm probably going to develop premature arthritis. I tore 5000 bits of dp for my leaves, tore up some hills of grass, and rolled up some little red felt apples. PLEASE tell me they look like apples and not roses!!! I coloured up one of my favorite PI's Caramel Apple and added some Crystal Effects to her apple, barrette and shoes. Along with my wonky felt apples/roses...NO Jenny- they are APPLES, damnit!- I am not a fan of the orange sweater. I only have a very small number of orange copics, and looking at this sweater, I am thinking another copic order is in the cards for me. I also wanted to add some texture to the sweater, using colourless blender and some real knit, but I ate lunch at McDonald's with the kids today, and frankly, that greasy garbage sucks the life right out of me....why don't I ever learn? So with my ambition nearly at it's all time low, and a rotten gut, I just let sleeping dogs lie with the orange sweater.
See the bits of paper on the grass? They are supposed to be fallen leaves and also some apples that hit the ground. I probably should have made the apple in her hand red as well, to tie the apples together and reiterate the point that those are not roses. Haha! And in all the twists and turns this card gave me, I completely forgot that I do have the MFT cloud die, and used my TCP cloud die instead. It was already tacked down with score tape, which some of you know is so sticky, it can double as waxing strips. No pulling that cloud off.
Here are a few close-ups:
And here is the inside...
Okay, that's it for me today! Stay tuned for some TCP goodness coming up shortly:)
