Double D My Little Unicorn


Anything with a Rainbow~Unicorn~Mermaid

Look at this colorful imaginative Mood Board Diane created for us this week.  It has to make you smile. So the challenge is to use a rainbow, unicorn or a mermaid. 


I took my inspiration from the color of the mermaids tail in the bottom right corner.  This card is definitely out of my wheelhouse, but that is why I love Double D Challenges.  They often push you out of your comfort zone.  I have never before now taken a finished card and spattered it with ink or paint.  I do this with backgrounds frequently,  but never after the card is done. I must say it was fun and I like how it turned out. 


We hope you will come and join us for this challenge at Double D Challenge BlogYour designs always inspire us. As usual, the team has some fabulous inspiration for you.

Dies R Us Double Z Fold

 April 1st  and time for another Dies R Us Anything Goes Challenge . I decided to create a spring birthday card. 

I don't know why, but I buy pretty papers and then I look at them and decide they are too pretty to use.  Now I have all these papers taking up valuable space so I decided I needed to start using them.  One of the best ways, in my humble opinion, is  a double Z fold card which allows the papers to take center stage.  What perfect spring colors too. 


The papers are several years old.  I bought two sets when PTI had a fabulous sale.  It is time to make some cards from them and let someone enjoy them. As you can see,  I did very little embellishment. A few Poppy Stamps Little Humming Birds and an Impression Obsession Stitched Flower.  I used a little greenery from my stash and I had a completed card. 

We hope you will join us for this challenge at Dies R Us Anything Goes Challenge .  Just remember to use a metal die manufactured by a company that DRU sells.
