I chose Sketch c10:
No virgin papers were harmed in the making of this card. Nope, I used all remnants. Even that hot-air balloon was carefully trimmed from an already-cut-into piece.
That strip of bright red-orange didn't look right, so I rummaged in my OMG, WHY DID I BUY MORE WASHI TAPE bag from many moons ago and found a very cool roll of Mint Green Chevron. I placed it over the red strip and it toned it down just enough so I loved it.
The corners of the papers are rounded with the 1/8" corner chomper, and the white layer and card base are rounded with the 1/4" chomper.
And now I think I'll go put away those papers. Yeah, I'm kinda done with them for a while.
Thanks for stopping by!
Great card and how clever of you...I did not realize that the horizontal strip wasn't just pretty patterned paper. So smart to add some washi; it looks perfect with the cool colors on the balloon and pop of red. Perfect!ReplyDelete
Yep, genius to use the washi to tone it down! Much easier than using vellum which was my previous go-to. Now to remember to do that myself! I've gone a little nutty with these bonus sketches...there's so many good ones in there! Loving the hot air balloon :)ReplyDelete
Wow, you've been busy this weekend! No pink in sight either :-) I really like the color combinations, I am still in awe of people like you that can make paper pads work together.ReplyDelete
So pretty, love that baloon, and good job not cutting in to new papers! (boy, do I need to do more of that!!)ReplyDelete
Haha..."No virgin papers were harmed in the making of this card"...love that! :) You did another fantastic card! Thanks for playing with me!ReplyDelete
