Hello my friends. Happy Monday. I have another card done for the monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art. Please refer to this post to see how I made the base for my cards.
Again, I reached into my inspiration jar for some ideas. My words this time were die cut, eyes, and triangles.
I used a very old Cuttlebug die called harlequin and cut several diamonds from pattern paper. Then I cut them in half to make triangles. Because I wanted them just a bit smaller, I trimmed off about 1/4".
To make my background blend better with the paper, I used a mix of white and orange acrylic paint to make a very pale orange. Then I lined up the triangles along the edge, overlapping them slightly.
I cut some eyes from a magazine and glued them on with gel medium.
I hand wrote the sentiment. To fill in some of the open space, I punched little flowers from the scraps left over from die cutting and added them. To make them stand out, I added some doodling with a black marker.
Of all the cards I've made so far for this challenge, this is my least favorite. I think that's because there is no real focal point.... no place for your eyes to rest. They just jump all over the place. For now, I'll consider that a learning experience, but I may come back later and redo this one.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous week.
