Happy Labor Day! Hope everyone is enjoying their looong weekend. Mine is just starting as we're off to Nick's Cove for a couple of days to celebrate our 36th anniversary on Tuesday. I'm looking forward to a little break from crafting and some relaxation on Tomales Bay.
Our challenge this week at BBTB2 was chosen by our fabulous Team Leader Heather. I couldn't help but make a Halloween card using the heart, as well as the font from Rock Princess, all welded together in DS. The colors were dictated by the batty DP from Basic Grey. It all still looks a little jarring to me, even though I tried to tone down the lettering with inking and embossing. Trust me, I tried about a bazillion different color combos and this turned out to be the best but... I do love the bat wings, though. They were embossed with the Tim Holtz Spider Web folder and inked with Alabaster Chalk Ink. OOOOH, SPOOKY! The heart was glittered by running it through my Xyron and sprinkling it with gorgeous purple Doodlebug Sugar coating. Yummy!
It's a shaped front card, but I bet you already assumed that. LOL Couldn't help but add some bling. the interior swirls and small gems on "Batty" are by Recollections from M's and the large purple hearts (honestly they ARE purple but insist on photographing more BLUE for some reason) are by Darice.
Lots of layers again, this one sort of took on a mind of it's own. The second layer of wings were left free to fly. Now don't panic if you don't have this cart. We'd love you to play along with any heart, or thing with wings, or drippy thing (Hmmm...I'm not going there) on a new creation and link it up mentioning the BBTB2 challenge and linking it back to our site so everyone can get in on the fun. Now go take a look at what the rest of the DT has come up with for this challenge and be inspired.
