Today I'm sharing my two Week 12 APCs with Claudine at Claudine's Art Corner. I encourage you to check out her latest blog post to see how she created her APCs this week, because, after imitating her cards, I didn't see a need to provide any step-out photos of mine.
Claudine started with scrapbook paper, but those of you who have been to my blog before know the only scrapbook paper I have are the pieces Claudine sent me, which I thought were too busy for this project. And yes, my backgrounds are usually all handmade rather than of the lovely scrapbook paper type.
This background paper was made using silver and blue glazes on heavy white cardstock. I added the flower and butterfly left over from a time I visited my friend Kathy and used her dies. The "I" is a sticker, and the words were written with a Zig pen.
The second card started as watercolor paper, over which I applied Twinkling H2Os. I started once again with a sticker, then used my green Zig pen, which quit working about half way through the wording. I had to finish everything, including the lines, with my Micron pen.
Since we have no APCs to make next week, I have a week to finish these cards. Thanks for looking, because I already know how I'm going to fill the lines on both of these cards: with brutal honesty!
