Well, it's been a while since I've posted a card. I finally found some time to make a card this afternoon...and it sure felt good. :)
I'm playing along with 2 challenges today.
Fusion - French Twist
Virginia's View #14 - Layers and Dimension
When I took a good look at the Fusion inspiration photo, many ideas came to mind. But what I was really drawn to were the fabrics. Lots of texture. Oh, and those beautiful colors! Love that combination of gray, yellow and white. In fact, I had almost finished this card when I realized that I am wearing those colors today. :)
Then there is Virginia's challenge using layers and dimension. I knew right away what technique I wanted to use on this card. Stitched pieces of patterned paper, layered over several colors of card stock.
Here's what I came up with.
I used 6 patterned papers, all from one 6 x 6 pad. It was a bit "challenging" to get my patterns aligned in the right direction, with all those random angles. All worth the effort, though.
I even did a bit of stitching on the sentiment strip, just to tie it all together.
That's it for now. I think it's time to spend some time outdoors before the next round of rainy weather moves in.
Thanks for looking!
