Here's my card:
Again, you neat people are missing out on sooooo much inspiration. I had a piece of kraft card stock already cut and sitting on top of my Hero Arts Zig Zag background stamp, so I decided it was time to see how that stamp looked clear-embossed on kraft. I liked it! I liked it even more when I started applying the Peacock Feathers ink. Oooh la la!
I got all crazy and picked up a remnant of Bazzill textured card stock, then stamped the Winnie & Walter sentiment with ... wait for it ... Peacock Feathers (I KNOW!) onto the textured side of the white card stock. I don't usually stamp with Distress inks, and I don't like to stamp on the textured side of card stock. I was throwing caution to the wind!!! In the end, I really liked the result.
I used some Tombow to hold the banner in place until I put the brads in, but in my world no normal adhesive sticks to embossing, so I pulled out the big guns and stuck a piece of Sookwang/Be Creative tape under the banner, then attached it to the kraft piece with three brads from my stash. It's amazing how I can have a squillion brads and not one was "kraft". These were Caramel from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts, purchased in a "I must have ALL THE COLORS" moment about 8 years ago.
It was at this point that arrow came into play. It needed to be in the upper left, and it needed to be a color. Well, guess what's still in the heap of UFOs on my desk? Yep, some MAMBI card stock remnants. I used a whole 1/2" of a piece for the arrow. I stuck it down with Multi Medium, then used a craft knife to cut it out. Thank goodness for straight sides.
For my last act I dug out a matching piece of Bazzill card stock for the base, and put the kraft panel up against the edge, leaving a white strip showing on the left. I likey! :)
So, I think you should take up this challenge of using something A, B and C on your project, then link up over to SOS so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
