CAS-ual Fridays is hosting a challenge that asks participants to create a clean and simple card based on his or her blog header. My blog header is actually a photograph that my mother snapped of a butterfly on her Bottle Brush tree. It is such a happy and serene scene and it represents the way I feel when I am creating in my craft room. This was a great creative exercise and win or lose, I really love the card I created.
I couldn’t decide where I wanted to place the sentiment so I stamped it on a scrap of paper and took two different photos to decide.
Doing this visual exercise usually helps me when I can’t decide about placement or color of my sentiments.
There are still a few hours to join in on the challenge CAS-ual Fridays Toot Your Own Horn
Such a pretty header and your card turned out awesome. I love that you shared such a useful method of deciding where to place things! Great tip! Glad you tooted your horn with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
Thanks, Michelle. It was neat to see my blog header transformed into a card. This was a great challenge idea.
Maureen, this is absolutely gorgeous!! It looks so real, and is the perfect representation for your blog header! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! We’re so glad you did!
I had to mask the stamp to make it appear as thought the butterflies wings were closed. This stamp is of a butterfly with both wings spread. This challenge pushed me a little to try new things and I enjoyed it a lot!
Beautiful!! LOVE your butterfly, your card is simply lovely:)!! I love how you tried out the sentiment in both places…my choice would have been yours…great idea!! Wonderful take on your header!! Thanks for sharing your creativity this week at CAS-ual Fridays:)!!
Thanks for the love. This project was fun to work on and I am thinking about using the image I created for my card as my logo for my business card. Thanks for the challenge!
