Gypsy Spot Challenge Week #1 - "Owl My Love" Card
Today is the FIRST challenge for the Gypsy Spot blog and I am so excited to be a designer! This week we were asked to use a cut from Gypsy Font or Gypsy Wanderings. I chose to use both as BOTH of these cartridges are just LOADED with great artwork! Gypsy Font and Gypsy Wanderings are the two on board cartridges that come pre-loaded on each and every Gypsy. Each cartridge features beautiful, whimsical artwork and great creative features as well!
I decided to go with the owl as the central cut on this card. I just LOVE owls! I cut the owl from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge both in regular and in shadow. I then cut the "O" from Gypsy Font using the "Monogram" & "Monogram Shadow" features. I really like the Monogram style on the G Font cart because it reminds me so much of the way that classic fairytales would start with those big huge swirly fancy letters.
The 'my love' is cut from the standard Gypsy font and welded together. I used prima flowers, ribbon, buttons and glitter to finish it all off.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to become a follower both on this blog AND at The Gypsy Spot! Happy crafting!
