My post today is for two challenges from two of my favorite sites; First a sketch by Lesley Croghan at Freshly Made Sketches with her "Seeing Double sketch # 21",
called "Fire & Ice & a Neutral times 2". The colors are from Stampin' Up (poppy parade, pool party, soft suede and very vanilla).
Now here is my card.
I used a soft suede card base then topped with poppy parade cs die cut with the new "Adorning Accents" edgelits die. I embossed 4 times with the matching "Adorning Accents" textured impressions embossing folder at different spacings.
I cut two pieces of "Everyday Enchantment" DSP using the edgelit die to fit 'into' the embossed sections, but as you can see I'm having difficulty making them match completely. I tried several times then just gave up, must be me because I can't make it totally line up at both ends. There must be a secret, so feel free to spill the beans!
I then layered a piece of vanilla/suede script that was wrapped with a piece of pool party ruffle ribbon then glued to the card front. This piece was layered with two more die cut "Designer Frame Labels"; one in pool party to frame the second smaller very vanilla sentiment piece that I also distressed with soft suede and a dauber.
The little birds and sentiments are from the new SAB "Elementary Elegance" set. These two pieces were popped and double popped up to give dimension. I also couldn't stop messing and colored a ribbon rose with a pool party write marker and added with a glue dot.
Here is a peak at the inside using touches from the front. Did you notice I even used my scrap piece of DSP over the script on the left?
I just HATE to waste any DSP!
Well that's about it for now and I probably won't be in blogland much as I have two more crazy busy weeks ahead at work; out of state traveling for one week... oh man. I just want to stay home and get INKY!
