This week I did something I don't usually do: I made one card for five challenges. Yes, I did. As I collected my list of challenge prompts for the weekend, I found a recurring theme, so I went with it. Here's my card, then I'll explain:
Blue. Look at the list:
City Crafter Challenge blog: Winter Blues:
use washi tape. You don't have to tell me twice!
Now, where were we ... oh, yeah, my card:
I started with the blue tea cup, and then cut some doilies with my MFT dies. The blue doily was created by ink-to-paper using Distress Broken China ink. If you look closely, it's not perfectly inked, but I totally meant to do that. The ink for the doily, tea cup and sentiment are all Broken China.
For the two sections of the top of the card, instead of using card stock or paper or stamping, I opted to score it in two different directions. I used my new-to-me mini score board, which comes in very handy because of this:
I had scored a line about 1.25 inches up from the bottom of the layer because I knew that's where I'd put the washi tape. I selected some tape that was close in color to the blue I was using. Then I decided there was a need for contrast, so I colored the dots in the tea cup with my SU Poppy Parade marker, and added some MME Enamel dots. I was a bit itchy with all that white at the top, but I just let it go and called it done.
