This is my first post as a 2 Cute DT member so I need to introduce myself before describing the cards. My name is Ileana, I live in Madrid (Spain) and I have a wonderful and supportive family. I discovered the digi world at the end of 2010 and I jumped into blog land this last January (my blog here), so I´m pretty new to all this and I´m loving every minute! I´ve been crafting all my life thanks to my mom but I started making cards four years ago, it all begun as a self imposed therapy and I got completely hooked by it! Soooo... enough of rambling about myself! let´s jump into the fun part.
For this first post I made two cards with different colors schemes: boy and girl maybe? I chose this overly cute Cat-knit, printed it out twice on white paper, I colored them with crayons and oil pastels and blended them with mineral oil.
The sentiment is from TLC creations that I printed out on craft paper and the finishing touches are flowers made out of scraps of paper, ribbon, left over buttons, brads... you can use whatever you have at hand! The green patterned paper is an oldie from my stash and the pink paper is wrap paper I saved because I liked the pattern a lot.
I hope I´d inspired you with this two cards. I´ll see you all next week, have a wonderful Friday!
PS: and don´t forget to stop by for daily fun and inspiration!
