My March Blog Hop creations
Peace, Love, Joy
It is hard to tell from this photo (sorry) but the flower is fabric and the center is sewn with embroidery floss. I love this card in person, there is a ton of PTI goodness used, 6 dies, 2 stamps, cardstock and felt.
In the spirit of the INKers March Challenge and the BlogHop I've made this Brighter days card. This one did not end up the way I had envisioned it and in fact had almost found it's way in the round file more than once. My "trigger" to finding PTI were these fluffy clouds. My first direction on this card was to sew the clouds with the floss, but in the end it just didn't show up enough. So I played some more. Stamped the rays of the sun, and again, they didn't show up enough, so I used some yellow floss and loved the way it turned out.
After making the flower for my first card, I ran out and bought some more fabric to play with. I used the Smoky Shadow cardstock (looks black here) and oh wow do I need to get more of it, it is beautiful. I picked up some random items that I had cut out for "Peach Joy Love" card above and threw this together. It took a tenth of the time it took me to do the other cards and it just might be my favorite. But it's hard to say because they each of such a different feel to them.
Just for fun I messed around and made this:
I stamped on the clear sheet that we get with our stamps with Stazon. I attempted to do floss all over the balloon, but it didn't look good so in this case, less is more, I tied a bow on it and called it good. Here is a close up to show the plastic overlay.
Thanks for looking!
