A day off work here in Australia for the Queen's Birthday and I thought what better way to spend my day off? You guessed it - creating another card.
This time round I drew my inspiration from the CR84FN challenge and teamed it up with the latest iSpy sketch. I am really enjoying the colour challenges set by Mona on the CR84FN blog. I love that I am constantly pushed outside my comfort zone and I try to use more than one paper manufacturers papers as well.
So here are the inspiration pics:
And here is my card:
I wanted to use this cute little cotton spool that I found at a $2 shop this week. So in keeping with the sewing/haberdashery theme I set out to create a card that used stitching, my sew nifty MFT die, buttons and of course a sewing related greeting.
The papers were from Cosmo Cricket and My Minds Eye. I loved the doily print on the MME paper for the background. For the panels I decided to wet and scrunch the paper and then iron it dry to change the texture to resemble fabric. I machine stitched all of these elements.
The lettering was from Collections and I thought it worked well with the colour challenge as each tile was bordered with a thin grey line. Bling was from Prima. Pin from Birch and safety pin was from Making Memories.
Thank you to the CR84FN & iSpy sketch designers for their inspiration!
