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. :>
