I am hosting this week's Challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges, and I decided that this time I choose a theme. We're in March, and what theme is better than Spring? So I chose to base my card on these lively colours.. with lots of flowers in the background! That's what I mostly love in Spring.. flowers.. of all kinds and colours! As DT work I can't take part in the actual challenge, so I based my card on Mojo Monday's sketch! Read about it here:
This week it is Contest week over at Mojo Monday, and I couldn't resist to use this sketch.. it is lovely; and offers a lot of possibilities. I have used anotherHAnglar image for this card, and although I kept it quite simple and clean, it really stood out.
I coloured with the usual Distress Inks, and have worked a bit with the ribbons I used. First I positioned the pink satin ribbon with double-sided tape, and then I chose the green polka dotted one to place on top. I threaded some green thread through the length, and put it on top of the pink.
I didn't glue it in place, but positioned the image ready with the matt to see where I want to create the design (Don't know what to call it! sorry!!) I cut the thread, leaving some extra length on either side; and then pulled gently until I got the effect I wanted. I left underneath the image straight, so that it will stay flat. I also opted to created a different, stapled bow for a more funky look.
To finish off the dainty look, I embellished with a crotcheted flower and pearl brad.
The white background is embossed with Stylised Flowers Sizzix folder.
Swirl stamps and sentiments are Studio G.
As you see I stuck to the idea of decorating the inside, I like it and get to use some of the scraps from what is left. Have a lovely Blessed Sunday.
Thanks for looking
