I Miss You

Howdy peeps!

Everyone has their one little vice right? Alright, a few vices then! lol If you promise not to tell anyone, I'll let you in on one of mine. Promise? Ok, it's watching QVC while I stamp. :) Remember, you promised not to tell! hahaha So anyway, since getting our HD tv, I've been turned off watching it because nothing looks good on an HDTV if it's not an HD channel. Well, last night I found it - QVC in HD!!! Woohoooo! :D The funny thing is that I've never bought a thing from QVC! I just like to window shop and listen to the chatter while I stamp! :) So now you know my little secret.

This week's There She Goes Challenge (TSG61) is all about going green....literally! Trendsetter Danielle Lounds wants us to create a card or project using the color green and some type of plant (flowers, trees, etc) on it. No sweat right?

I picked this daisy from one of my favorite sets, Bloom, some of that gorgeous Origins paper from Basic Grey, this week's Sketch For You To Try and created this sweet card.

The trick to making the petals on the daisies white is to play up the color around them. I sponged SU's Cool Caribbean (my color of choice for most of my backgrounds) around the petals and added just a touch of Going Gray to the shadows for some depth. The decorative scalloped edges (done with some decorative scissors) keep the card on the feminine side even with all the earthy colors.

Now it's your turn! Create a card that uses GREEN and a PLANT, then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (July 5th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

Have a great Tuesday!

Very very pretty...be careful with QVC that it doesn't become a place to "buy" I find if I have the tv on I never get anything done, so I listen to music (from the 70s).

Gorgeous card, Sandra! Thanks for the tip on making white objects appear whiter. Love that Basic Grey Origins paper!!!

haha, QVC! Actually, if we had cable I'd probably have that on as BG noise too. I grew up spending a lot of time at my g-ma's house and she had a tv in every room--all tuned to QVC. There were always packages showing up on her doorstep. Omgosh, I just realized I've turned into my g-ma...but the web is my QVC...and DH is like my g-pa always muttering about various packages showing up all the time. LOL!!

hehehe, your secret is safe with me ;). I always turn on a movie but never watch it while I stamp and create. It drives my husband batty, but I like the noise, it's comforting. :)

love the card - the little black accents are so perfect for the softer colors - great job!!

Nina said...

Wow, this card is beautiful!! Love the colors. <3
