I played this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger! Here is our inspiration:
And my interpretation:
Just a wee bit literal, eh? But when I saw the spools of thread, I thought of my neglected PTI quilt set and the lonely thread spool stamp. I stamped it thrice on Kraft in Memento Brown and cut them out, then I stamped it thrice again on another piece of Kraft for the base. (Psst ... Deep dark secret: that top piece of Kraft actually started out as the card base, but I hosed it. What you see here is a save.)
I wound the baker's twine around each cut-out spool, then stuck a short piece to the base (*ahem*) before I stuck down the spool. The ends of the wound-around pieces of baker's twine are held down with some Martha Stewart gel glue (I do intend to marry that stuff, omg.)
I really don't want to talk about what happened, so let's just say I ended up with a smaller piece of the card front, which I then layered onto Tempting Turquoise, which I also used to make that handsome button. Since I'd measured incorrectly, I ended up with gaping sides on the card front which I ever-so-cleverly filled in with Kraft pieces punched out with my SU Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.
So, does it look like I meant to do that? Good. Then my work here is done.
Off to play some more before I nod off. Thanks for stopping by!
