A Bit of a Weird One

Hi! I've slowed down on the card-making front, partly because we have a lot going at the moment, and partly because I've been having a lot of migraines. I've just upped the dose of my migraine-preventative pills, which has made me feel rubbish and drugged for the last few days, so I thought I'd try to make something to cheer myself up! So... this is what I came up with. Yes, I know, it's a bit weird. Still deciding whether I like it or not.

Less Is More has a 'Jewel Colours' challenge at the moment, Addicted to Stamps has a photo inspiration challenge which inspired these colours against black, and City Crafter has a 'Scribble Doodle Fun' challenge.

On white cardstock I doodled the flower with an embossing pen, and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I coloured the image with distress inks and a water brush, and then cut it out and 3D-mounted it onto black card backed with Tip Top Taupe card. I added gems for a bit of bling.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Less Is More: "Jewel Colours"

Addicted to Stamps:

City Crafter: "Scribble Doodle Fun"

CAS-ual Fridays: (Distressing, Sparkling, Embossing)

The ABC Challenge: "S is for Sprinkles" (Embossing Powder)

I don't think this is strange at all, it totally caught my eye in the Gallery!! Love the way you used the colours, especially against the black background. So sorry to hear about your migraines, my 10 yr old daughter has started getting them too and its just awful. Funny how sometimes the drugs can make you feel worse when they are supposed to be helping. Hope your feeling better soon and thank you so much for joining us at ATSM and CAS-ual Fridays!!!

Doesn't look weird at all and like Shona said, it caught my eye straight away in the gallery! It's got a really cool retro look about it I how it pops so brightly against the black! Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

I love your doodled flower, so impressive and those colours really pop against the black. Nothing weird about it in my eyes. I hope you're well again soon.
Thanks for sharing at Less is More and ATSM.
