Recipe Challenge at Some Odd Girl

The challenge today at Some Odd Girl is a Recipe Challenge! You may think those are restricting but really they aren’t! You just have to think a smidge and all your elements will come right together! When I got this card this far I was like “Where am I going to put punched/die cut element?” And then I was like DUH I already did! I die cut the circle! It doesn’t have to be tough 🙂 And I am famous for over thinking hehe. 

Have you ever gotten into a rut or just going thru the motions with your crafting? I can see now that I was like that before having my Intermediate Certification class at the beginning of the month. I admit to having more opportunity to craft than some people but I also have a ton getting in the way between family and running Some Odd Girl so actually craft time is once a week (usually Sunday while I watch Football :DD) . Getting a lot done in a little time is a priority but after taking the class it really reminded me to slooooow down and have fun! Well, I always have fun 😉

This was one of the first cards I finished after taking the class and I love how she turned out shading and all! YAY! I’ve got a new skin shading color that I’m really liking after thinking a bit at the class about what would work well. I’m using v93 and v95 and I love the color it gives the shadows, a real depth to me 🙂 

For the card I used Sweet Thinkin Mae stamped with Memento on XPress It. The papers are October Afternoon and the card base is DCVW. Mae is colored with Copics:

Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27
Skin: E00, E01, E11, V93, V95, R00, R01, R12
Clothes: YG01, YG13, YG17, YG61, YG63, YG67

Moral of the long winded story, you may not realize you’re in the rut until you’re shoved out of it.  :>

    Oh yes I too have felt in a rut. I’ve colored images and then have stared at them and have said, now what. Some of those are put away for a rainy day and some of them have met their demise. Lol.

    Beautiful card and I do love that shadowing.

    I came across your site a couple of weeks ago and am in awe of your work and stamps. I’ve even have one of my own to play with. Thanks for sharing it all with us. I especially appreciate you listing your colour combinations!

    […] the card design (papers are AC, Sass and October Afternoon) I actually lifted myself from this post and changed it up a bit. That card was one of my faves so why not lift it? 😉  Renew is colored […]
