time for a new challenge at
This months challenge:
love and/or colors
from the inspiration photo below.
I used similar pink colors,
trying to create an ombre effect
on the letter pressed hearts and polka dots
background. I accidentally over blended them
so there isn't as much of a gradient as I wanted.
Circle dies and a punch with coordinating stamp
to create the swinging element in a window.
The stamp was inked with a medium pink then
the edges were rolled onto a darker pink.
I made two of the stamped elements then glued
them back to back with fishing line
between them to suspend it.
The ends of the string were glued between
the front panel and card base front.
Polka dot grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
Closeup to try to show the "letterpress" effect.
Closeup to try to show the two tone color stamped image
that I added a touch of Pearlex paint to.
This photo also shows the thin ring I cut from pink
card stock to frame the opening.

Thanks for looking =)
Our challenge lasts all month,
plenty of time to create a card to share !
