There are a few challenges that I wanted to participate in this week, so worked to fit in bits & pieces of crafting time today. The house is now quiet, but I am "on call" to pick up my daughter & friends, so will post this as quick as I can.
This first card is for the Tuesday Trigger: A Little Romance at Moxie Fab World. Cath has done it again with another fantastic inspiration image.
My mind immediately went to vellum, buttons & lace trim. The sentiment is created with a few Technique Tuesday stamps and heat embossed on the soft green vellum. This vellum overlay is only adhered to the card base along the left edge.
A soft dandelion image is stamped & embossed on the card base and peeks through the vellum.
A mix of white, cream and MFT Sno Cone buttons were placed first and pearls filled in the blank space.
My second card has a completely different feel to it. The Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge is Cool Shades this week.
I paired this with the Simon Says . . . By the Sea and a new challenge, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Feeling Nautical.
The Curtain Call straw hat in the inspiration photo gave me the idea to use fabric for the kraft color on the card, so a little burlap backs the sailboat.
My favortie inks right now are from My Favorite Things - the coverage is truly amazing!
I'm heading back to the office to play until family duties call again.
Thanks for stopping by,
