It took some thought to come up with what I was going to try. A new coloring technique? A new product? A new card fold? Then, I saw a similar card to this one on a blog and had to try to figure out how they did it. I love a challenge!
Using Ellie's Bouquet, here's my "Try Something New' card:
I'm not sure what you call this -- see through the middle? peek-a-boo? It's created with a piece of acrylic in the middle, where normally there would be card stock. The next time I try this, I'll try to make the focal point smaller, but for the first time, I'm satisfied.
I thought Ellie, with her bouquet, was a great showcase for this card. Ellie's adorable, isn't she? I colored Ellie's Bouquet with Copic markers. The papers are from Paper House. I've never used them before (another first for me), but got them in an order I placed from England. The 'dream big' sentiment sticker was in the papers. Little Ellie has big dreams, I think, so I decided to use it.
