I've been pretty busy lately and I've kind of lost my mojo. I had about 10 challenges that I wanted to participate in, but couldn't come up with something good. I find that when I go peruse what other people have done, it usually helps me come up with something.
So I got some inspiration and made this card last night. It didn't take long to make, but it took quite a while to come up with the idea. I needed to use something from my "bits box" for the challenge at Less is More. I had a lot of things in there, so it was hard to narrow it down. I needed to do a girl power theme for Addicted to CAS, and the technique at Crazy for Challenges was Ombre. So I found a distressed background stamp and stamped it in various shades of orange for the ombre look. The stripe and sentiment for the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch were pulled out of my bits box. The blue strip was already stamped, which is why I chose shades of orange for the background.
I made sure to stamp the girl to one side of the card to leave lots of open space. She is stamped with archival black ink to give a good silhouette.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all can come play along with me at these fun challenges!
