Even though I made several cards today ... NONE of them came easily!!! Must be one of those days!!! Enough whining ... on to the card!
The Crafty Secrets Challenge (CSSC71) over on Splitcoaststampers was hosted by Lori Lynn and it was a doozie!! Lori's clues yesterday really had me stumped ... turns out she was trying to tell us to think of creative uses for using text on our cards.
Here are a few of Lori's suggestions:
- use sentiment stamps to create backgrounds
- use Crafty secrets dp with newsprint/ad type designs*use vintage book pages to make embellishments
- use current newspaper/phone books etc and distress to give a vintage look then punch or use to embellish
- use CS set Journaling to add a script background on wings, fabric flowers, ribbon etc.
There was no stamping on this card because I used an image from the new Crafty Secrets "GIRLFRIENDS" Creative Scraps. My "text" panels were cut from a vintage shopping bag and was zig-zag stitched onto my Chocolate Chip background.
Recipe for this card:
Papers: SU Very Vanilla & Chocolate Chip
Ink: Ranger Vintage Photo
Accessories: Wright lace, Nestabilities, Rafia, Bucket O'Buttons, Sewing Machine, Dimensional Tape
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Hope you are have a creative day!!
