Thursday's Way To & Friday's Limited Supplies

I know I'm a bit late with these...but better late then never! Ok...so I was also feeling icky and my hand was swollen, but I still had to play along even though it took me a while to finish one card up with only 1 good hand. Still here are my cards. This one was made for Thursday's Way To challenge. The challenge was to show a way to use paint in your project...so I decided to use my Patina paints that I use to "antique" on this card. I first layeres it with the "primer" which is a sage color, then I brushed bronze over the green, dried with heat gun and then layered with gold. The gold isn't as visible, but IRL you CAN see it. After I was done with it, I thought "what was I thinking when I added the ric rac?", well, I took it off after...lol. It looks much better without it, but I didn't take a picture of it! *doh*

This next picture is of the card I made for Friday's Limited Supplies challenge. The challenge was to use up your scraps...and I so need to reduce my scraps! I have and this piece of DP was the one I chose to sacrifice in the making of this card. The outcome was a HIT! Now I need to buy some more of this DP because it was one of my favorite pieces that I had saved in the scraps pile! The vellum I used for the butterfly was also a scrap. I have to say this one was a true challenge being that I had to trim these pieces of 1 inch "tiles" using my left hand and then cutting the butterfly with my right (hurting) hand. I should have dome it the other way around...lol.
