I’ve been trying to stretch myself creatively by using colors outside my normal comfort level. The delivery from My Mind’s Eye provided me with lot’s of new options so I won’t be stuck in a paper rut.
This card in yellows was super fun to make and features a large glittery die cut. I sewed around the edges for a little extra detail. I also added some vintage buttons with mismatched thread.
I layered the die cut over a clipped out doily image also from a sheet of M.ME. paper. Inking was a very important step to help separate the patterns. I also created little banner shapes and positioned them under the die cut to give the impression of a larger embellishment. I finished this sunshiny card with a simple ribbon and bow with little paper roses and twine.
This card has more of that fabulous green dot from my French calendar pocket project from yesterday. I trimmed it with a length of white flower ribbon. There’s also an inked paper doily and vintage buttons.
This sweet vintage image is from Graphic’s Fairy. Love it!!! I layered it over a Tim Holtz ticket and button card from Crate. There’s a nice border of craft paper to anchor the light colors and separate the patterns. I got lucky in the button stash and had a green button that matched perfectly and tops off a simple creme colored bow.
Okay so that was my living on the edge projects : ) I challenge you all to do something a little different.
Thanks to all you you who visited me in my crafty little world today : )
