Curvy Girl with a Message

Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday from Annapolis.

I finally had a chance to sit down over the past weekend and do some challenge cards. Whew, it has felt like forever since I spent a good block of time in the studio. While I did several cards, I wanted to tell you about the one I made for AAA Cards. AAA Cards challenge is a “clean and simple” challenge, where you have a maximum amount of white or blank space on your card. The twist on this particular challenge was Positivty.

How’s that for positivity?

The curvy girl in this image, is standing on a soap box with some bubbles. Some of the bubbles are in front of the box. Coloring them so they seemed see thru was fun!

First I colored my soap box, even over the bubbles. Hmmmm, you say?

Then I took the copic colorless blender pen (which in reality is an eraser or an ink pusher and NOT a blender at all) and erased most of the color from the bubble areas.

Then I took my BG0000 and colored over all the bubbles. Allowing some of the brown to remain, making the bubbles look see thru! Such an easy technique.

This being a clean and simple card I added NO extras! Do you know how hard it is for me to not pop on some dew drops or a rhinestone? But, sticking to the rules can be the most challenging part of a challenge. AAA Cards is a great challenge to try, I love that it makes me stop and keep my card simple. Drop me a note and tell me what you like about doing challenge cards.
