Yes, I'm a New Kids On The Block fan!! I was one of the screaming little girls at there concert when I was young. I was also a screaming girl at their concert a few months ago..lol!! I won tickets from the radio ( I listened all day just to be caller nine :) I drug my hubby along and he didn't complain..much!
This weeks Created By Courtney Challenge is an inspiration challenge. You have to make a card based on the CD cover of the album you listen to while your crafting. Most of the time I'm listening to their new album which is pretty good. I really loved the layout on the cover and thought this would be a fun card.
WRONG!!! This was a super tough layout!! The first attempt I made I also tried to to follow the colors of the CD and that was a big mistake. I don't like these colors together and it was really bad. I was going to show you attempt one and then chickened out. Trust me it was bad. I also tried using silohette stamps to mimic their black shirts. Another mistake.
Here is attempt two!
I'm still not totally in love with it but it's miles better than the first one. I asked my hubby what he thought of card one, his response, "Well, it's not a bad card.....". When I showed him this one he was relieved because he said the last card was really bad!! See I told you :)
I stamped my favorite Stampendous flowers on Kraft cardstock twice side by side. I colored them with my copics then cut them in strips. I staggered the strips to resemble the way the hunky new kids are on the cover.
I don't think I'll try this layout again but if anyone else gives it a whirl let me know, I'm dying to see!!! Make sure you go check out the other chicks creations!!
and say an extra special hello to another new chick Kim Gruetzmacher!!
