Guess what? My planet's solid than ever... almost. I'm very happy with my revamped paper station, ribbon storage and my craft desk had some changes as well. I just need to get rid of some more clutter, and it's all good to go.
Speaking of clutter, while going through them I saw this paper bag from a recent craft show purchase. I really liked the colors and design so I decided to keep it for a later project. Along with a found paper tape measure, I was able to make this card:
cardstock/dp: Bazzil, Paper Reflections, Me & My Big Ideas, recycled paper bag, leftovers
image: Tim Holtz
ink: Copic, Ranger
tools: Spellbinders, Janome Sew Mini
embellishments: flower (Prima), trim, paper tape measure, twine
misc.: UTEE, Glossy Inkssentials
adhesive: Scotch, Glue Dots, mounting tape
With a part of the paper bag for my background, I painted the left side with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Chipped Sapphire. It's my first time to use Distress Stains, and I really liked it. I sewed my new background on coordinating cardstock with zigzag and running stitches.
It was a challenge for me to use this image by Tim Holtz, but I held my breath and started to color with Copics. I guess it worked with my background very well, and I love the outcome. See the center of my flower? That's melted UTEE poured on a small ceramic mold. I made a bunch of them, and I finally get to use one on a card. I also colored the center of the flower with Distress Stain to go with the color scheme. It doesn't show so well, but I covered the sentiment with Glossy Inkssentials for more pop.
I really enjoyed making this card - not my typical style, but I really like it.
