Flora and Fauna Challenge at Creative Knockouts

Hey there and welcome. Today I want to share with you my DT project for Creative Knockouts. This week’s theme is "Flora and Fauna". The Artsy Stamper is our generous sponsor and offers one digi set to one lucky winner, and that could be you, so I really hope you will find some time to play along with us!

For this challenge, I made two cards.
My unusual color choice for a turtle might seem weird, but the first card I made for a very special friend, who is suffering from cancer. I can’t imagine how hard it is for her, especially during these times of this horrible pandemic and social distancing. She happens to have two tortoises, and pink is one of her favorite colors, so I decided to use pink and purple shades for coloring. She also loves glitter, but I did not want it to come off and transfer on her fingers, so I used metallic paints instead. The metallic splashes not only shine beautifully, but you can also feel some texture when touching them.

The second one is a mini card. I have recently started to make mini cards, and I love them! The advantage of resizing digis is really helpful here. So, after printing out three small (different sized) turtles, I colored them in and used foam tape to adhere them. Then I stamped the sentiment, and my card was done.

I hope you like how my cards turned out, and I really look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge!
