Vicky from Clips-n-Cuts has started a new challenge this week. She'll post a picture from some where around the world for inspiration and you take it from there. Well I must say this was harder than I thought! I loved the photo she used, of course it's Greece because that's where Vicky is from, such a beautiful country! I loved the sharp contrast of blue and white with the hint of cream but no matter what I tried I just couldn't seem to achieve that clean crisp look this time around, so the following is what I ended up with, perhaps I'll still have time to try it one more time.
I had just picked up these metal embellishments from JoAnns and was itching to use them, this will be an anniversary card so perfect sentiment. The papers are a mix, the Solid blue from Debbie Mumm's Textured Cardstock pack, the print I believe is K & Co but don't quote me on that, the card base is plain white cardstock.
I embossed the blue triangle with my Cuttlebug and the Traffic Jam folder and then used a sanding block to lift some of the blue from the paper and finished by using my Tim Holtz destressor on the edges.
I wrapped and tied brown hemp string around it knotting in several places.
I wish I could name the stamp for you. It came stamped in the mail from a friend and I don't know whose it is. I colored it with my Copic markers.
I hope you'll pop on over to Vicky's blog and join in this Challenge and a chance to win $25 from Two Peas in a Bucket store. You have until Monday midnight I believe, at the bottom of Vicky's post you'll see how much time is remaining to enter.
