Trying out a new format...

...and really having fun with it! It happened that two different challenge blogs this week offered a sketch for a long card. This is a truly nice shape to work with.
The first sketch on which I based my card comes from Lord Have Mercy! , and here is what I did with it:

Photobucket

I sponged the embossed background in a purposely careless manner with green ink, and then applied a silver one to the dots only. The central element is sponged with olive ink, and some glitter applied to the "snowy" parts of the image.

Next card uses the sketch provided by Tuesday Morning Sketches. Also, I chose the colours from the combo over atColor Throwdown, which are basic grey, old olive, rich razzleberry & really rust. Finally, I folded the ribbon, so that it applies to the "We're Folding" challenge at Daring Cardmakers.

Thanks for looking, have a happy weekend!

  4. oooh two lovely cards. Love that folded ribbon for our DCM. You're right, the long cards are great to do - somehow much easier that the same size but upright. Or maybe I'm just mad?
