Another fortnight has flown by, so I find myself here with my piece for the
Delicious Doodles Challenge, which this time is:
'Tales of the Unexpected'
Now this can be interpretted however you wish. Your unexpected thing could be a hidden something, an unusual style, exploding box, whatever!
I have a couple of unexpected things with my card. I unexpectedly made the thing in the first place. Was going to miss out on this one as time is so pressing at the mo, plus I haven't been a well bunny.
I made the card for our teamie Lyn (Blackdragon) who had a family bereavement, and I wanted to send her a something to show my support and hopefully offer a bit of comfort. Now our Lyn is a lover of all things BLACK, plus she is a bit of a Pagan, so I searched online for a pagan funeral verse to use on the card.
This is the front:
My dp is a lovely rose backing that I founf somewhere. It was coloured originally, but I made it black for this occasion. The frame is a frameabilites die. I wrapped some wide black ribbon round and tied in a bow to the side of the frame. The verse is continued on the inside:
I used my Rose image for the two little roses here, flipping one the other way. The verse panels are edged with black and green ink and layered onto silver mirri. I added some clear gems to the front.
My second 'unexpected' thing is my message that I put underneath the verse. I am not showing that here, as that bit is private, even though there isn't anything unusual about that.
I am not entering any challenges with this card, as that would be a bit unethical I think.
Hope all goes well for you today Lyn, thinking of you all. . .
