See you at OCC soon.
Hello and welcome to another edition of Our Creative Corner's challenges!
This month Linda, the Funkie Junkie, is your host and she wants us all to
"Use your scraps and left overs from previous projects, pieces of paper, scraps of ribbon, embellishments made and never used. If you are like me and can't bear to discard all those yummy scraps, you'll have a variety of possibilities to use for this project. Let's put some of them to use!"...
...Linda says and that's exactly what I did on this birthday card. Yes, you read that right - I made a birthday card.... being no card maker at all I was suprised how much I love the outcome of this one (and that is has not a single fingerprint on it too. Yay!).
I am sure some of you can remember the project, where my scraps originate from. I really hardly ever throw away scraps... don't ask me why. I guess it has something to do with my love for paper in general...and for the traces left on it.
So I had this pile of lovely torn and cut off scraps and paper strips and I also remembered how much I loved the colour design when I originally painted the paper... so I decided to use it again.
After playing around with some of the coloured strips and the torn book page piece, everything found its place and I glued all my elements to the white card.
I added some stamping as I had done on the other project - the lovely feather stamp from Red Lead seems to have become one of my favourites (as has the numbers stamp from Kaisercraft).
The label stamp and die were a gift from dear SanDee1899 and I really love it as it gives sentiments a wonderful frame and makes them focal points on every make ! Thank you so much, Sandra! xoxo!
It's a clean and simple design, but when you already have a lot of texture on the elements you use, you are better off with working with a more static design. So I focussed on verticals and horizontals only, which makes the traces of the acrylic colours and the shape of the stamped feather image more prominent.
