Happy Tuesday! It's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's theme is Thrice As Nice, and we'd like you to use at least three different patterned papers on your project.
I took a major departure from my recent CAS cards, and I made this:
So. much. purple. And it's dangerously close to (gah) pink! I followed this Deconstructed Sketch:
I was hugely influenced by some pretty ribbon gifted to me by sweet Miss Lauren, and these papers went with that color green. Sometimes we must make sacrifices for our craft.
I chose the busy paper for the background, and cut a piece of the green for the horizontal strip. The shaped paper at the top of the strip is a punch-out from the paper pack, and I cut a thin strip of another purple for the bottom of the green strip.
The green ribbon is on elastic, and that gives it a mind of its own, so I forced it into submission with some Be Creative (Sookwang) permanent tape. It's still a bit off.
For the small banner and the back of the oval, I cut from the same purple paper I used for the thin strip, and I cut the large banner and small ovals from white. The sentiment was stamped in Hero Arts Charcoal, and the pretty heart was in a pile of hearts sitting on my desk.
Before I added the banner to the card front, I decided to add another piece of the floofy ribbon to line up with the other ribbon, mostly because I could. The banner was attached to the card front with foam tape, the better to span over that floofy ribbon.
I've used a total of four different patterns of paper. If you have 6x6 paper packs laying around, this is a great way to get matchy-matchy papers you can easily use together. So come on over to SOS and play along!
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: Crate Paper Trims: Peppermint, Kaiser Craft True Romance 6x6 paper pad, and the following:
