Hola friends, thanks for stopping by. I wanted to fill you in my latest endevour... Remember the friend I spent some time with in Vegas...? Well she's quiet the entrepreneur and she's always on the move. Right now her latest project is to provide an upscale location and information website to the local salsa dancers in Las Vegas. And an awesome idea... especially since the only time she can get in her salsa dancing, was when ever she had some business to attend to in L.A.... Hell, sometimes she'd drive 4 hours just to dance Salsa for the weekend... although she loves it so, we as her friends, couldn't help to worry about her when she'd go on her journey back home.(sigh)
Anyway, when she saw my latest creations, she brought up the thought of me selling my cards at the venue.... what a thoughtful friend. So here's a card with my friend Jackie in mind.
What I loved most about this card is that at first glance you'd think I used a purple color, but in reality it's actually the SU! Basic gray. I started with the basic gray for the base, followed by the "Old olive", the mirage piece if you will, the designer series "A walk in the park" paper. Mind you, if you saw the piece by itself, you'd know it was gray? But when placed against the "Old olive" I somehow got the illusion of the purple... baffling really. So I continue.... for the center piece, I started with a scalloped circle with "Sahara sand". Then I cut the next piece circle at 3 5/8" and dried embossed it with my cuddle bug template "Spots and Dots". I wanted to show the layereing pieces by giving it some texture. Then I added another piece of "Basic gray" at 2 3/4" followed by "Very Vanilla" cut by the Spellbinder die cutter in the "labels three" nestabilities set.
I hope you like. Tooddles.
