I am finally back in the swing of things…that includes getting back to my weekly challenges. I love participating in the Waltzingmouse sketch challenges. I like to combine the sketches with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. Somehow they always work together.
The crochet squares in the inspiration photo have little “knobs” that reminded me of the beaded part of Spellbinders Beaded dies. I loved all the white and light blue in the image and went with that. I didn’t have paper that went completely perfect with it, but I thought Melissa Frances 5th Avenue paper worked pretty well.
Two 3″ x 4″ pieces of polka dotted paper were cut diagonally to . The diagonal edge was stamped with a stamp from Waltzingmouse Oval – Classic Frames set in Jet black Archival ink. Neenah Solar White cardstock strips were cut and embossed with one of the Parisian Accent die and adhered under the diagonal part of the triangles. The layers were adhered to a 4″ x 5″ piece of patterned paper, also from the 5th Avenue paper pack.
The top right corner was rounded with the corner chomper. The layers were adhered to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock before the edges of the triangle pieces were paper pierced. Black Silk ribbon was tied around the layers before those were adhered to a card base, a 4 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock. Again the top right corners of the black as well as the card base layer were rounded.
The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Cameo to Go stamp set. White cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest of Spellbinders Tag Trio (retired, sorry), sponged with Tattered Rose Distress ink and stamped with the same ink with a stamp from Waltzingmouse Cameo Creations. The sentiment was stamped in the center with Jet Black Archival Ink. The tag was tied to the ribbon bow with Iridescent Curling ribbon from May Arts and topped with one of Tim Holtz Buttons.
The Cameo and frame stamps are both from the Cameo Maker set. They were stamped in Jet Black Archival ink, let dry and then cut and embossed with the second largest die from the Beaded Oval Nestabilities set. With the die still on the layer was sponged with Tattered Rose ink. The layer was adhered to the card base with dimensionals.
Another piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with a die from the Parisian Accent pack. The corner swirl was sponged with Tattered Rose ink and adhered to the top left of the card base. Want2Scrap Baby Bling White Pearls on the tag, Cameo Oval and corner swirl finish off the card.
I hope you have time to play with us this weekend! Make sure to check out the rest of the team for more inspiration!
Have a wonderful weekend! We are going to watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes and (hopefully) pick up my sewing machine from the store. I painfully missed it for this card . Paper piercing is just NOT the same.
Hugs and smiles
