I want to share with you a few creations I made using EarthArt International's Butterfly and Owl. These images are so detailed and beautiful. The creation I made is another tagcard. I mentioned in my last post that I would share the details of this tagcard. Well, I'm going to do that in this post because my butterfly card is also a tagcard. A tagcard (designed by me) is, as you probably guessed, a tag and card in one. The front of the card is a tag that you can tear off ( I used my perforated paper cutter) and use as a bookmark or gift tag. Here's my butterfly tagcard...
For my other creation, I used the wise Owl image from EarthArt International.
I wanted to show you some of the different ways to add color to these images. I used a hint of pink for the butterfly and I think it is a good contrast with the black and white. The coloring technique I used for the owl was to simply change the color in MS Word. I didn't add any Stickles or Copics to it. I love how they both turned out.
You can find these and other images at Scrap Orchard.
Now get to creating...
Remember: There are no mistakes in card making, only opportunities for creativity!

I hope you're Saturday is better than the one I am having. :-) I hate basements. I truly do not like them, especially Michigan basements. They are wet mold infested useless caves. lol Well, because of this reason I very rarely visit my basement. I try not to ever go down there, but sometimes it is unavoidable. Late yesterday I went down in the basement and noticed some unsual things along one wall. This wall is on the far side of the basement and I don't ever go over there. Well, upon further inspection I quickly realized that it was fungus. I literally screamed and ran back up the stairs. LOL I tossed and turned all night trying to figure out what to do and then decided to google it. I discovered a simple solution for destroying it (bleach and water) and a dehumidifier. I mixed my bleach and water, put on my mask and gloves, headed back downstairs (bucket in hand) and drowned the fungus. YUCK!! I will head to the local Home Depot tomorrow and pick up a couple dehumidifiers and some more bleach.
