Design Team Call tryout
There's a new challenge blog opening up, it appears to be quite international and it would be fun to make more friends from around the globe! So I'm tossing my hat in the ring to be chosen as a designer, we'll see what happens! I like the fact the challenges are once every two weeks, that gives you time to think things over and come up with your best work.
Here is a link to their blog and their badge. They ask you to list your three best pieces of work for their consideration. I don't know exactly which three to pick, so I closed my eyes and threw a dart at the computer. (no, not really!)
Here are three that I like for different reasons. Looking forward to the first challenge on May 4th. Best of luck to all who are entering. They're giving away candy too; just leave a comment on their post.
This is a tent card, I haven't made too many of these but I do enjoy them. I also don't use digital images often, but Mo's (image from Mo's Digital Pencil) has such cute things. My printer tends to eat my paper when I try to print digis.
This card brings back special memories of time spent with family at the lake, inspired by a photo of my son walking along the sandy beach at sunset. The colored panel uses a wash of different shades of ranger distress inks to create the sunset look and then I overstamped and embossed the branch images with black craft ink, added a bit of glitter for the sun's reflections on the waves. Despite the amount of work on the panel, I still consider this an example of my CAS work. (image by PTI)
This uses a glitter window or stained glass technique, using different shades of glitter on a stamped image on acetate. So the image is 'colored' with glitter, then you flip it over when you glue it on your layout so the glitter won't rub off. The 'waves' behind the fish is a piece of DP positioned behind the acetate panel. (image by Inkadinkado . . .I think)
Thanks for looking and thanks for the consideration.
