The Cutting edge - a BIG hello!

Hi there!

Back with the second card I made for the Cutting edge challenge this week.

I find it fascinating to look at the gallery and see the different ways a single photo can inspire different individuals. Even when the same elements are chosen for inspiration, the outcome varies so much!

Just look at the 2 cards I made (the other one here) ... each one has its own 'feeling' !




After cutting the front panel with my Silhouette, I masked the bottom part with washi tape and splashed it with watercolor paint. A butterfly to add the finishing touch!



Thanks so much for looking!

Oooo, ek's mal oor die effek wat jy verkry het met jou waterverf, vrou!!! Hierdie challenge is darem net die ding om jou te laat blom ne - so absoluut in jou kraal!!!! Mal oor die swart binnekant en die skoenlapper so in swart met die 3 enamel dots!!! Lieflik!!

Groete uit 'n lekker koue, maar sonnige George!!

Love that white paper, Hannelie... what is it? An EF, or some special card stock? Very cool. And your 'hello' is killer!! Such a brilliant idea, and a fantastic card. Love it. Bev

I really love the combination of the gentle pastels against the black. I would never have thought to try that, but it's really pretty!
