Hope you are all having a great weekend. Mine has been super busy, but I did manage to finish my card for the High Hopes Challenge # 21. The challenge this week is to use Zigs and Zags on your card. Not too much on mine, although the card itself could be considered a zig zag in itself! When I first saw the new release, I just knew there was another stair step card to be made in the near future.....LOL!!
So this is my card for the HHC #21.
The time painting and cutting in this card is incredible. Not a card you would give to just anyone....for sure!! Actually, I am just keeping this one for me because it makes me chuckle when I look at it.
Well, you all know the drill by now...I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows...LOL! I used my pergamano hockey stick (which is a shaping tool) to shape the image and give them a bit of depth. I used some ultra marine shimmerz on the sky, and white liquid pearls on the flower. I also used my MS punch for the bottom grass. The grass is super thick mulberry paper that I dampend and tore, I brushed it to make it fluffy. Lots of stickles too! I printed the sentiment from the computer.
I took this pic to show you a different angle, its hard to see everything when you
can't hold it in your hand and turn it all differnt ways.
I just love this guy..."Farmer Clem", he is too cute. I am happy with the way my card turned out....I hope you like it.
Have a great day....and Thanks so much for stopping by.
Wow Karen, this is absolutely amazing!! I should say you DID put a lot of time into it. It is just fabulous and I can sure see why you would want to keep it yourself. Awesome!!
Love, love, love it. Karen, you are absolutely the best. I can imagine the time that went into this and if I were you...I'd get me a pretty little shadow box-thingy to showcase it but not touch it. But then again, in my world...Clem would be my husband!!!
