So this week’s Tiddly Ink challenge is called challenge me. Although this card isn’t all the fancy, it really did come together nice. I picked the quote from
Mary Horowitz (aka Sandra Bullock)- All about Steve “ Why should you have to change to be normal. All you have to do is find someone who’s as normal as you are.”
I dedicate this card and quote to my daughter, but I feel we all can relate…. Remember the movie “Never Been Kissed” her true soles mates where the geeks and the science nerds. I think everyone can relate to that somewhere in their life. Anyhow, my daughter marches to a beat of her own drum and I am so grateful to get to share it with her.
So remember what is normal?
On the card side, I used copic markers to color in the digital stamp “Masked Avenger” from Tiddly Inks. I will tell you when using this markers good paper really does make all the different. Also although these markers are very expensive, honestly too expensive, they do have amazing blending ability which you should be able to see on the dress, cap, skin and hair. However when you scan or take a picture of a card it really never seems as vibrant as it looks in real life.
Again, the whole thing was basic, I started with the quote and the thought of which picture would be best after I colored them I put it together, base was big dot embossed, and then cut on the edge to give it a scalloped bottom from Stampin Up. Digital stamp was corner cropped, using punch from Creative Memory. Two very simple small star brads and star punch from Creative Memory add a little accent. Truly the stars where added to give a little something to that side of the card. Finally I decided I didn’t want to do a flat ribbon or a bow, so I did a layered ruffled ribbon across the middle of the card.
I think I must love Colors because it seems like the cards I make have a lot of color to them. I enjoyed this card, it came together super fast and my daughter is going to send it to Absolutely Mindy from Sirius XM Kids Place Live… She will understand it completely as she seems to march to her own beat also.
