When it rains, it pours, right? I've fallen off the challenge train lately, so this weekend I printed out a bunch with the hope of getting to a few. I had three challenge images on one piece of paper, and I decided they needed to all be done together on one card.
The inspiration for the background came from the Inspired By challenge:
The color combination came from The Play Date Cafe challenge:
and the sketch came from Deconstructing Jen:
Here is the resulting card:
I started by embossing the chevron background onto white with some white embossing powder. Then I applied Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn and Chipped Sapphire. It actually came out exactly like I saw it in my head.
I wanted a not-rectangle shape for the sentiment, so I rummaged in the back of my sentiments box for this old MFT die & stamp set. Tip: When trying to stamp on a white die-cut, put it onto some colored card stock so you can see what you are doing. Yeah, this wasn't my first attempt at that sentiment.
The ribbon was sticking out of the UFO ribbon box at the top of my table, so it got used here. It's held in place by that brad. I straddled the ribbon with the brad and put both brad legs through one hole. It's all hidden and quite secure!
This was crazy-easy to make, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!
