Anyway.... Let's talk about this week's challenge on The Corrosive Challenge Blog! It's charms! I love charms! I knew right away what I wanted to make. I have had this Bella image and sentiment, along with the peapod charm. I was lucky enough to find this vegetable paper on my last shopping trip. It's by Cosmo Cricket and is double-sided; I love the cute little faces on the vegies!
Bella is colored with pencils. I didn't know if I wanted to work some blue into the card, since there was none in the DP. I was sorry right away, when I started coloring, because it was really hard to blend! Ack! If anybody has any tips for coloring with dark blue, please share them with me....
I made a little tag out of the Kraft, added the peapod, and tied it with some jute. I tied my knot with the ribbon and added a bit of a glue underneath the knot to hold the tag in place. I really love the ribbon on this card. It came from my friend Chrissy; I just hosted a PTI swap and she tucked some goodies into the package for me. I love how it's crinkly and just a bit shabby! It really drapes nicely too!
