In this scheduled post I am sharing cards which were published in the Dec/Jan/Feb issue of Take Ten (Stampington & co). Below are three of the five cards which appear in the feature, I was so happy to see them be published.
The cards feature All The Gals (available from That’s Crafty).
The actual Gals have, to my eyes, quite a contemporary, edgy appearance to them. I liked the idea of the contrast of the edgy Gals set against pastel tones and pretty little bit of this ‘n’ that. The splatters and the black smeared onto the edges of the cardbase bring it back to that element of edginess once again and creates a frame for each of the Gals.All the backgrounds were swiftly painted with little concern about any of the white cardstock peeking through here and there (conscious of the time a card takes to be made when submitting to Take Ten), then the fun of creating splatters.The word stamps were used in the background with one word selected to describe each Gal.So there we have it, a collection of ten minutes (or less) cards. Those cards were made not so long after receiving the stamp set from That’s Crafty and although I liked the stamps on first sight, I have surprised myself at just how often I have inked up the Gals.
Many thanks for your visit to this scheduled post and for your continued support for my blog.
