Short post tonight because I'm still working on that flower-making tutorial AND planning out tomorrow's K.I.S.S. post. I have some challenges that I'm entering this card in & I thought you'd enjoy taking a peek at it. Base is an A2 card (white), background paper is from Prima, border strip is K&Co punched with the MS doily lace punch, pink pearls are from Basic Grey, and the focal point is....are you ready for this? Toilet paper! *ROFL* Yes, you read correctly...it's an embossing technique that I learned last summer...a form of paper casting that uses Cuttlebug folders. For this one I used "textile texture" & highlighted the embossing with my Tsukeniko chalk inks in pink, soft aqua, & jumbo java.
I want to give a special shout out to Linners - she's the one that mailed me the people paper last summer before we moved. It came NOT in a box, but wrapped very well in Cling Wrap & was completely undamaged in its travels from Georgia to Utah. My mailman thought we were BOTH nuts! *ROFL*
The challenges I'm entering this card in are:
Saturday Spotlight - use something from around your house - toilet paper
Colour Q Challenge #19 - regal rose, chocolate chip, blush blossom, close to cocoa, & white - pretty doggone close!
Creative Inspirations Challenge #47 - anyone for leftovers? - papers are scrap bits out of my stash boxes
Everybody-Art-Challenge #77 - Valentine - I was going for a vintage Valentine (it could also make a cool anniversary card!)
Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge #4 - Dazzle us - pearls & hey...using t.p. would qualify as "dazzling" you with my creativity! *LOL*
365 Cards - stacked up (at least 3 layers) - background, lace strip, focal point, & pearls
Now I'm off to link this post to all of these challenges. It was fun to see how many of these I could manage with just one card. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
