Hey, back for my second post this evening :) It will have to be short. Ummm...why do the weekends go so fast?
I'm playing along in a challenge that's new to me. I found it just yesterday, in fact. The sketch really intrigued me, so I had to give it a try.
I knew that I wanted to use various die-cuts, instead of the squares in the sketch. This is what I created:
First of all, I apologize for the rather dim lighting. I couldn't seem to find a place where the natural lighting was right. Too bright, or not bright enough. Oh well, enough complaining!
I spent so much time on this card. Choosing colors, dies and stamps. Way too much time!
I popped some of the die cuts up on foam tape and added baker's twine to a couple of them. My last embellishment was adding 2 pieces of gray ribbon...using my Tim Holtz tiny attacher. The card seemed to need those bits of gray to ground it with the gray card base.
Well, that's it for tonight. Thanks so much for taking a look!
