It's was my turn to set the dare for The Daring Cardmakers and several times this week I've asked myself the same question "Why on earth did I write that in as a dare?" Still, as you'll see if you pop over to the DCM BLOG, the team came up trumps - and I have to admit that the only one who moaned about the dare was me!
What's the Point?
I'd like to see cards featuring points or pointers of some kind - the hands of a clock, arrows, pointing fingers, view-points, pointy stars, pointy ears (hehe), pencil points.... maybe pins and needles could also be incorporated into your designs.
I was so stuck that I didn't even get as far as making any false starts, but sometime in the depths of Wednesday night when sleep was eluding me (grrrrr) I came up with an idea. It's a bit of a change from the things I usually make, but a change is as good as a rest, they say.
The pointing finger is some free clipart that I changed to print out in shades of grey and to the size I wanted.
All the lettering on the front of the card, and the stars on the inside was cut by Mr Robo (bless him ;)). The stars were included as another pointy thing, the lettering on the inside is yet more from the sheet of birthday message "rub ons" I made way before Christmas - it's still going strong!
I discovered something while making this card - I found out that I need to up my supplies of shades of grey Bazzill - I really had to scrabble through my stuff to find enough bits to make this.
Just a reminder that there's another chance to see Anice showing Funky Hand's new CD "Dreams Come True" on Ideal World this afternoon. Tune in at 2pm on the TV or click HERE and use the "Watch us Live" option on the menu bar (along the top of the screen, far right)
You can also order through the Funky Hand website too.
Please let me know if you spot any of these ;)
I love these papers, the designs are wonderful and there are sooooo many colour collections to choose from. The last show was a sell-out and I'm sure today's will go swimmingly too.
Please go and see what the DCM Team have been making this week - I'm blown away by the fabulous range of cards they've come up with - they obviously didn't struggle as much as I did, that's for sure!I'd love it if you'd join in and share your creations too, it's always such a joy to follow the links left on the message board - there is just endless creativity out there, you know! :)
