I have four cards for today. This first card is for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge--Picture Perfect. This is the first time I am playing along with a Paper Smooches Picture Perfect challenge. Here is the photo we had to work with:
Isn't that just such a warm and cozy scene. I keyed off the colors--yellows and orange, the love message in white, and the rectangular shape of the pillows. I had to get creative, since my Paper Smooches stash is limited. I used two rectangular graphic shapes from the Alpha Dots set, and stamped a random pattern in various shades of yellow. I used white embossing on Summer Sunrise paper for my sentiment, from Pretty Phrases.
My next card is for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge WMSC #125--it's been a while since I played in this challenge. I used the colors of this week's CR84FN68, which I interpreted as PTI Scarlet Jewel, Memento Grey Flannel, and Vintage Cream. I loved how Jeanne used French Country to make her banners, and decided to do the same thing. I wish you could feel that beautiful ribbon--Kim sent it to me--and it is soft as silk.
This card, posted by Deb earlier today, really caught my eye. I loved what she did with her Washi tape, and it made me want to do the same thing with some of my tapes. There is a certain someone--nameless--who is trying to get me to buy more Washi tape--but I have decided, for now, at least, to try to use what I have. Crazy talk, I know.
This Washi tape actually comes with random sections of different patterns. Quite fun, and they have done all the work for me.
By happy accident, I discovered that the chevrons on this Washi tape will all line up when you put the pieces together. And, that the green is a perfect match to Limeade Ice.
That's it for me today. Real life is calling my name, and it is hungry!
