This will be the first of many posts in the next couple of days. It will also be the first in a cluster of posts before a slight crafty drought. Unless I make a DT...*crosses fingers* Here is my card for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch, Die Cuts R Us Challenge 26, TCP Tuesday, A Spoon Full Of Sugarand the Whiff of Joy Challenge pearls and swirls challenge.
This card is based on a difficult sketch from TMS, I just tweaked the sketch ever so slightly (turned it and nudged the middle elements up). I really tried to follow the sketch...so, close! I used pearls and swirls but I wish I had some off-white or sage/olive pearls instead of the white ones. But I think there's enough sage and tan around that it reflects those colors. Ah, colors...
So the first papers I picked out were green, purple, patterned, and designed. Major fail once I found the DCRU challenge to use non-designer, non-patterned papers. So, I used solid papers from my stash and even used a roller stamp from my first PeachyCheap purchase. I was inspired by the Skipping Stones Hop(e) for Haiti and, so I finally inked up my funny bras stamps. I paper pieced the bra and hanger together and I'm pleased with them together. Then, I busted out my corner punch, embossing powder, and Cat's Eye Chalk for distressing, and got to work. Hope you like the end result!
