Here's The Card Concept's Challenge #7!
Since I couldn't really come up with anything I left The Card Concept's card alone for a bit and I started looking at Freshly Made Sketches. I don't recall when I first stumbled onto their blog but I'm quite glad I did! I find I usually need a sketch to start a project (though lately it's becoming harder for me to follow sketches! Maybe I'm losing my crafting touch, who knows. BUT I am pretty good at zombie/alien arcade shooting games! DAVE & BUSTER'S WAS SO MUCH FUN I cannot get over it.) and I quite liked the rectangular-ness Freshly Made Sketches' sketch 131 so I thought it'd be a great place to start!
*FUN FACT* I actually had a dream I was playing zombie shooting games. I was both in the game and the player. While I do love zombies and I love being scared I woke up almost peeing my bed :/ That dream was a whole different level of scary!!! ...But I did wake up wanting to play it.
Here's Freshly Made Sketches #131!
After spending about 10 minutes blankly looking at cardstock I realized I needed help with a colour scheme! I wanted to follow The Card Concept's butterfly colours but I didn't really have any cardstock or ink that matched in a way that ....didn't piss me off (maybe the lighting was off in the craftroom but everything just looked wrong. Who knew there'd be so much drama in card-making!) I remembered coming across Colour Throwdown in another card challenge about two weeks ago (just looking through other entries and reading their posts) so I figured that I'd give theirs a shot. I'm glad I did because this week's Colour Throwdown's inspiration challenge was absolutely beautiful! I'm such a sucker for pastel colours.
Here's Colour Throwdown!
|*FUN FACT* Every time I've looked at this picture I started craving mini-eggs|
*FUNNER FACT* It's time to take a break from this post to go eat a few mini-eggs :D
So I put all these challenges together and this is what happened. I would classify the card as "Clean & Layered":
I really, really wanted a light, pastel-yellow but unfortunately we didn't have any. This is the lightest yellow we have that isn't ....the colour eggshell, but I do think it's actually quite a lovely colour. I don't think the butterfly is prominent but...I guess I like the card enough to post so oh well.
And now it's time for a nap! I stayed up all night watching Game of Thrones! (the latest episode and random season 3 ones. Oh how I wish I had dragons) I hope you all enjoyed The Purple Wedding as much as I, and the rest of the world did! Game of Thrones, doing weddings right since 2011 ;)
I also hope you all enjoyed Margaery Tyrell's face reactions as much as I did: her expressions give me life. I would watch an entire episode of Game of Thrones of just Natalie Dormer's facial exressions caused by Joffrey antics!
