No Evil

No Evil

No EvilHi there!! Been a while since I’ve blogged anything, as I’ve been feeling out of sorts, and blah lately…..hiding in my little hole in the corner of the world lol.  However, I’ve been crafting, and here’s one of the cards I made….using the adorable We are No Evil by Mitzi at Aurora Wings :)  This was one of the first images I ever had from Aurora Wings, and have only just now got around to coloring it and making a card!!  I used my SN markers to color it, adding some detail with a fine point Stampin’ Up marker that I’ve had for 13 years (and it still works!!!)  I wanted to retain the woodsy feel of the image throughout the card, so I embossed some leaf print background paper with a tree embossing folder, then dabbed brown paint on the embossed parts to give it some definition.  Then I proceeded to cover the better part of it up by layering burlap, and pieces of a damaged screened in gazebo that I scooped up before it went in the trash :)  I die cut leaves in a variety of greens, added a twine bow with some leaf charms, a sentiment and a square gold accent :)  Loving these little guys….I love owls, have always liked the No Evil characters, and am a huge fan of Aurora Wings images, so its a perfect mix!!

Rusty LavenderHi there!  I had this image, from the Kit and Clowder Elements of Nature class, colored up for a while.  I had an order for a birthday card, with the recipient’s favorite color being purple.  I don’t generally leave images card-less, so it was a perfect time to use it :) With the jug being rusty, I thought “old” and “distressed”, so went with that.  I distressed all the edges, and inked things up with some Distress Inks. The background paper is from an Old World stack, and the lace, velvet ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

I’m entering the following challenges with this card:
