Hello Blog~Land Friends,
it's another rainy, dreary gray day here in BC, perfect for showcasing my latest card...
I created it for my friend Jeanette's swap 'Rain in the Forest' where - in her own words - "...swappers are encourage to create cards that have something to do with
rain : umbrellas, puddles, flowers (that grow thanks to spring rains), raindrops, etc....
AS A LITTLE EXTRA SOMETHING… and since I love to use found/recycled items on cards, anyone who uses a recycled or found item on her cards AND TELLS ME ABOUT IT will get an extra card in her return envelope. The extra card will be made by me and will include a recycled/found item in its creation....."
* BEFORE going any further, can you guess what I ended up recycling on my card? * :o)
Well, if I have to be honest I must admit that this card took 'life' on its own...
going to a direction totally opposite of what I had planned in my head...
(does that ever occur to YOU, my readers?) In my case it happens more often
than I care to admit....lol
Here for example, I didn't originally plan to make this card into a tent-topper one,
yet the size of this cute image turned out to be just right for that....I think....;o)
Here's a close up of this sweet immie by Whipper Snapper called 'Spring Angel'.
I wanted to give it some texture and decided to use a brush dipped in crystal effect
to apply on the umbrella...I love the uneven textured 'wet' look to it.
If you still didn't figure out what I used as part of my recycled items here's the reveal :
used yellow tape from ATG gun, and red netting from some plump tomatoes...
What do YOU think? Did these items served their re-purpose well? *wink*
Lastly...a group photo of cutie-patooties Spring Angels...
say *cheeseeee* pleezzzzz.... ♥
I hope the receiving peeps in the Forest's swap like them as much as I do....
Thanks for stopping by.....I'd love to hear what you think....
♥ Blessings To All ♥
