I'm trying another challenge today. I've followed and admired the creations on the Mojo Monday blog for quite a while but never got the courage up to enter something of my own. They have lovely sketch challenges, this is this week's...
What a great challenge to make a tall and skinny - so often its tempting to just make a standard sized card so to have the challenge to make a different size is fun!
Stamp Set: Petal Parade (SAB), Express Yourself
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pool Party
DSP: Sweet Sorbet (SAB)
Punch: Fancy Flower, 2 1/2" Circle
Big Shot: Circles Framelits
Embellishments: Sweet Sorbet Accessories (SAB)
I reversed a couple elements on this card to fit in with my incredibly narrow card. I've got to say I didn't really know where I was going with this card. It was one of those cards I just fiddled with until it looked right.
I've used a whole host of Sale-A-Bration products here - the DSP, Petal Prade stamp set and the accessory pack!
I am totally LOVING the cork embellishments in the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack - love the mixture of flowers, diamonds, scallops! Also in the pack is three twines. This Summer Starfruit twine is three pieces knotted together and then I unravelled them so they'd spread out more.
For the flower, it was punched and then I used the bonefolder to break down the fibres of the card until it separated - its softer, creates more layers and created a beautiful suede effect. The leaves are just folded and cut tear drop shapes, then sponged a little.
Hope you enjoyed this creation. Do you ever make tall and skinny cards?
