Another challenge

Playing with paper and scissors is FUN :) Colouring didn't go well, but vase for flowers is ok. It is printed tweed. Photo of it was sharp and looks pretty good printed imo. Description will be added after well earned sleep (it's 2am here).

Pics looked really weird, so here comes the second set. Now I need to work out how to add these and where :D Ok, this is the finished card. I was looking for to get 3D effect and not use anything but paper. The silver shining belt is card stock (from Home Bargains, England, and it was 80 pence for 16 A4 sheets). Green hanging thingies are made of very ordinary 80gms pastel coloured paper using Sizzlit. Card stock: White 14 x 14 square card. First I glued pastel yellow sheet on top of it.

Flower is made of 5 layers, bottom one is pretending to be leaves, then orange, red, yellow and the top layer is pink. Buttons. oh it was so fun to try to get buttons right. Water colouring pencils, smoothering, more colours etc. I like them.

Buckle was difficult. It just doesn't look "right" or real at all. Well, maybe next time, or 183 times after that then. ;) I can't draw, but I am soooo stubborn person, I am determined to get better. Hah. Because of the buttons and buckle, the vase "had to be" fabric, and what is more English than tweed? :) Found an excellent sharp pic and then printed suitable size. Voila!

This shows the 3D.

I would like to take part of these challenges:

PS. I honestly think I'm totally useless with all this, but thank you for your nice comments. :)

PS2. It says "Leave a direct link to your card (not just your blog) with mr linky... " So why there is me and another newbie ONLY doing that. All the others have links to blogs. Hmm... Surely I messed it up AGAIN!!! :p


  1. Goodness me, you're ambitious! All those 3D Glad to see you enjoying your blog. I wasn't familiar with this challenge so I checked it out and saw it was over at CDAC. I haven't joined in one over there yet. I suppose I should really.
    I always look forward to seeing what you come up with. :-)

  2. WOW!! Annemaritta, this is stunning! You've used the elements so creatively and coloured them to perfection. I love it all - the flowers are fabulous and you've made the buttons look so real. The buckle is beautiful too. Thank you for taking part in the embellishment challenge :D
