Thinking Box and Paper Pierced Thanks
Another Purpl-ish Day???? Kinda. I took the same papers by We R Memory Keepers ( my bad...I said Memory Makers yesterday....oops) and made several projects using just that one line. I tried to pull a more pinkish purple tone with my creations today. This is just a simple box. I think it is an 8X12 piece that was scored at 2" and 6" on the shorter 8" side and then scored at 5" and 7" on the 12" side. Maybe I should come up with a template and share. I'll do that later. It's VERY simple, but hard to explain.
I created the flower by pulling the thread on one end of the saddle stitched ribbon to gather it and form a spiral. Glue this to a scrap of circle punch paper and top with a brad, button, pearl, whatever. My "leaves" are just grosgrain that was tied into a knot. This is for the Free For All Challenge to use Buttons and ribbon differently. Ok...no button, but my ribbons are used VERY differently.
I used my Copics to color in the heat embossed frame. Did you know that you can color over any Copic with a very light gray to tone it down or give the impression of a more vintage color??? I colored over my YG25 and RV 19( I think) with a W-2. That is a light shade of warm gray and it took the harshness of the colors down a bit. Just a tip for you:)
Here's another project using the backside of that same WRMK paper, Retro Glam. I used some Colorbox Merlot ink and Sahara sand for the flowers. I colored my prima flower that was HOT pink with Copics to match:D I love Copics. Don't forget the Copic Sale at DCRU that starts TOMORROW! Cheap!
I added some twill and rhinestone for bling. My boo boo is covered by that "thanks" sentiment. I hate when I add a sentiment as the final step and it smears a big blob of ink. So stamp, punch out and cover it up...Yah!
Both cards are for :
The Pink Elephant~ Bling and Bows
The Creative Card Crew- Sparkle and Shine
This card uses Card Patterns Sketch and is for the challenge at Allsorts Paper Piercing/piecing.
I'll be back with a few more creations tomorrow. See you then!
